Default Kyle Long... Maybe a good thing he didn't sign?

I'll admit I was dissapointed that Kyle Long didn't sign with the Sox (not mad at the Sox, the guy had a nice scholarship from FSU and probably would have been a blue-chipper in 2-3 years).

Dodged that bullet.

He's still a blue chip prospect - only now he will probably come out next year after 1 year in JC.

Just another example of a stupid kid doing stupid things. I hope he grows up to not be a stupid adult.

He's lucky he didn't kill himself, or even worse, someone else.

He drove the wrong way and he failed two sobriety tests on a .10?

Howie Long is the perfect male specimen. Where did he go wrong with this kid?

In all seriousness, it is ridiculous someone would get behind the wheel of a car when they don't even know which way they are supposed to be driving on a street. Either he was so drunk he didn't care he was going the wrong way, or he had absolutely no idea what was going on. I'm just glad he didn't kill anyone.

He's probably underage too.

He was within the Standard Deviation of 21.

Wasn't one of KW's kids busted for stealing? Maybe the one we drafted?

Our GM would never draft a player of such questionable character.

It was an opposite view that Kenny is 'so' smart to not sign the guy. Kenny's kid ****ed up and it's not a big deal, but had we signed him there would be posts that he found a diamond in the rough and let it be.

No one said that. You are becoming a parody of yourself.
