He's Back!

From Peter Gammons' Sunday column, we get word of an old friend we'd almost forgotten about:

If Armando Benitez does break down, don't be surprised if the Giants turn to Merkin Valdez -- who's had a great spring -- and Brian Wilson, who shot through the organization last season with his power stuff.
Go Merkin! He could emerge as the post-Bonds face of the Giants organization, but be careful: no team has ever won a World Series with a player named for a pubic wig on the active roster.

Then again, I wasn't so happy to read in that column about Roger Clemens and his new pregame ritual involving Icy Hot. Yuk. Between that and Peter King's colonoscopy report, way too much information from our favorite middle-aged sports columnists this week.

Deadspin noticed the same thing, after I typed this.
