Ex-pitcher decries war in Iraq  

There was a Jim Bouton sighting in Texas Monday. Bouton spoke on various subjects including war, Pete Rose, and steroids. For another take on Bouton's appearance at Schreiner University, visit the Kerrville Daily Times. I love reading about Bouton's remarks because he always has an interesting take on things; even if I don't agree with him (which is often.)

He's like Bill "Spaceman" Lee in that respect. Speaking of Lee, he had some remarks in Sunday's Manchester Union Leader about Pete Rose and the recently departed Tug McGraw. McGraw was another guy who made good copy himself. Why are pitchers the most quotable players? My guess is it's because they have more time to sit around and think up stuff than position players.
