    Still OK to say what you want on there about dead people. But editing of any living person's Wikipedia entry just got a little more stringent:

    I guess Tribe fans won't be able to vandalize Larry Dolan's page when the team trades Grady Sizemore in a couple years -- unless Dolan's already dead. You just wait, Art Modell!

    So now The Man is going to decide whether Kevin Gregg molests children.

    I'd like to think I played a small role in this.

    And Kevin Gregg molests collies.

    Oops, my mistake. I should have kept up on my Wikipedia before The Man took over.

    He named Steve Spurrier's office the Fun N' Gun?

    (I saw the other thing, too. I guess that's funny, in a seventh-grade sort of way).

    Holy shit is that awesome.

    On July 10, 2009 Francoeur was traded to the New York Mets for outfielder Ryan Church.[8]
    He made his Mets debut on July 11, 2009 and notched two RBIs in his first at bat. He finished the day going 2-4 with 2 RBI, a strikeout, and was caught stealing once. On July 20th, Francoeur hit his first home run as a Met off Washington Nationals pitcher Logan Kensing during the ninth inning of that game.
    On August 20, 2009, the dead body of a 22-year old man was found on Chipper Jones' ranch.[9] Had the man's death been the result of being hit with a baseball bat Francouer would have immediately been ruled out as a suspect.
    On August 23, 2009, Francouer became the second player in major league history to hit in to a game-ending unassisted triple play turned by Eric Bruntlett, second baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies.[10] Homer Summa hit a line drive to Detroit Tigers first baseman Johnny Neun who also turned a game-ending unassisted triple play on May 31, 1927, completing a 1-0 victory over Cleveland.[11]
