A Conspiracy?


News came over the wire that Herman Franks, who managed the Chicago Cubs from 1977 to 1979, died on March 30th at the age of 95.

I immediately began to suspect a conspiracy; two other former Cubs managers have died this year. Cuban-born Preston Gomez, who managed the 1980 Cubs, died on January 13th. Whitey Lockman, who managed the Cubs from 1972 to 1974, died just a couple of weeks ago, on March 17.

Should we sending some security to protect Don Zimmer-- or will the "Celebrities Die In Threes" Rule protect him?

No worries, Zim is safe for now. Steinbrenner is protecting him.

I'd recommend the same for Joey Amalfitano and Jim Frey. However, Lee Elia is on his own.

Yeah, they're really behind you around here...

I think the "die in threes" rule should apply here.
