    Oh God ... the Vipers should have failed two years ago. I have no idea how they're still in operation.

    At least it wasn't the proverbial dozen baseballs and case of socks.

    Wasn't Dickie Noles also traded for himself in the 80s in a similar deal?

    What did he trade for these assholes? A used puck bag?
