The Fat Man produces good baseball players

Two years ago, the offensive genius of the Fat Man at Notre Dame was being shown. Brady Quinn was throwing touchdown passes to Rhema McKnight and Jeff Samardzija and running back Darius Walker was running for touchdown.

Fast forward and who have ever thought that the biggest impact that this group has had in professional sports would come in baseball.

With Kerry Wood on the DL Sweet Lou has called on Samardzija to be one of the major cogs in the Cubs bull pen. That is a lot more then can be said for the other members of the record setting offense.

Quinn can not beat out starter Derek Anderson for the job in Cleveland, Walker is trying to get playing time with the Texans, and McKnight is nowhere to be found. At least Charlie can produce good professionals at one sport
