Roch Around the Clock

Quarterback Drew Bled soe announced his retire ment after 14 seasons in the NFL.

Bledsoe's agent made the an nouncement ... and then sacked him for old times sake.

I still won't trash the Jaret Wright trade, considering the Ori oles didn't surrender a whole lot to get him. Chris Britton would have been this year's Sendy Rleal or Todd Williams. But there were plenty of whispers that Wright's shoulder was about to blow - sort of like an alarm clock after it's been hit with a hammer. Imagine springs flying all over the place.

Hey, here's a thought: Call up a hitter. Anyone who can make con tact. Anyone with a pulse.

And here's another thought: Don't be afraid to use him.

I'm not getting too caught up in the Jon Knott and J.R. House hype. These guys are mashing Tri ple-A pitching. A little perspective here, people. But I'd take either one as a pinch-hitting option right now. A backup catcher and pinch runner aren't helping.

Who knew that we'd miss Jay Payton this much?
