If you’re unfamiliar with theredzone.org, it’s a poor man’s version of Pro Football Talk. In it’s poorness comes local details of teams and players that otherwise go unreported in the ESPN world.

1985 - Billy Martin becomes manager of the Yankees for the fourth time. Seriously George, four times? You’re not getting a Calzone.

1997 - The late Owen Hart defeats Rocky Maivia for the Intercontinental Championship. Rocky would eventually morph into the leader of a group of black supremacists, which ultimately led to his further metamorphosis as the Rock. It’s a recipe for success that should be duplicated.

1998 - Juan Gonzalez sets a record for the Month of April with 35 RBI. Juan was really a great player back in the day, but gymany christmas, he was injury-prone. What’s that? Hold on … okay, reports suggest Juan just blew out his retina.###MORE###
