I don't know why, but the song "Still the Same" has always reminded me of Grace.

Four months in jail and 2 years of probation for his 2nd DUI in a 15 month span is considered not ****ing around? And he gets to leave jail to go work. Doesn't seem all that harsh to me.

Was going to say, here you're screwed. Ever go to traffic court and listen to the DUI's? Sure makes me not to want to drink or drive. Plus they have to sit in Cook co Jail all that time Noooway

Four months in jail may not seem long but when you actually do 4 months it's like forever. I think the most important thing here is that he gets treatment and education.

I met Grace in the Bullpen Sports Bar after a Sox-Cubs game when he was still playing for the Cubs. He was smoking cigarettes, drinking beer, and signing autographs for the fans.

It's way harsh. There are many fools who do much much much worse who get much much much less.

He's a coach for the Diamondbacks. He gets 12 hours off a day for work and then spends the rest of his day in the county jail.

I think he's more of an assistant helping younger players.
