Found today's radio piece with Tavarez in the audio archives and I loved it. Julien Tavarez never went to school a day in his life and came to professional baseball not knowing how to read or write. Lived in a house with no floor. Ate pineapples and bananas and had no clothes and one pair of shoes for years. Yes. I really recommend listening to it. I particularly enjoyed when he put Matsuzaka on the phone.

Mr. Damien Jackson was instrumental in helping Tavarez learn English. I told you he was awesome.

No games at all this evening. I might beat you, but I'll just keep my mouth shut.
