A Ring for Arthur Lee
Arthur Lee Rhodes always had great stuff but it took him some time to become a pitcher worth having on your team. He finally settled in as a good late inning reliever who put up a few excellent seasons. He’s now 41 and in his 20th season, he’s been to the playoffs a few times but has never won it all, never got the World Series ring.
He’s back in the Series with the Cardinals, and while they may not win, but Lord, I hope they do, I really don’t like the Rangers, Arthur Lee is guaranteed a ring. Wait, what?? How is that possible, you ask. Well, it’s like this, he started out the year on the Rangers, pitching in more than 30 games for them before he was unceremoniously cut (there may have been a ceremony, I don’t know, but it’s better this way). Then, he signed on with the Cardinals. So, either he gets one for his late season work with the Red Birds or for his early season labors with the Rangers. Wins either way.
I hope he’s a good guy, I really know nothing about him, because then you got your nice feel good story.
