    Paul Byrd used to flirt with me in my freshman English class in the spring of '89. I didn't know who he was until some other guy in my class asked me how I knew Paul Byrd, the star freshman pitcher.

    I said, "Who?"

    Well, hindsight is always 20/20, but just think, you could be already be helping spend those bonuses.

    Yea, I saw somewhere that after the big win the other night he mentioned something like that in comparison to 99 when he was on the NL All Star Team.
