HBT Daily: Howard, Youkilis and the scourge that is A-Rod

Aug 4, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

Our daily take on the news of the day. Today: big injuries to big first basemen and a tempest in a teapot in the Bronx. In other words: nothing new.

Ryan Howard’s and Kevin Youkilis’s injuries have a negative impact on the teams for which they play. A-Rod’s chase of 600 homers? Um, no, not so much.

    Ok I figured it out. Craig. You remind me of someone famous. It’s been nagging on me, but I finally figured it out.
    Hint: He lets the last Hungarian go. He waits until his wife and kids are in the ground and then he goes after the rest of the mob. He kills their kids, he kills their wives, he kills their parents and their parents’ friends. He burns down the houses they live in and the stores they work in, he kills people that owe them money. And like that he was gone. Underground. Nobody has ever seen him since. He becomes a myth, a spook story that criminals tell their kids at night. “Rat on your pop, and Craig Calcaterra will get you.” And no-one ever really believes.
    It was the evil smirk while talking about Howard that made me realize who it was.

    The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.
