He Still Is The Unlikeliest Hero

So what if he didn't steal home like backup catcher Glen Brummer did in August 1982, one of the many great memories of that championship season? (Listen here to Mike Shannon's Call that summer).

Backup catcher 2006 Gary Bennett's walk off grand slam last night could be just the thing to ignite a fire under this team's butt. Something that is going to have to happen for this lackadaisical team to make any noise this post-season.
