    This is a really good article about how Aaron Rowand got "addicted" (his word) to his Pinarello and lost 10 pounds

    He seems like a really cool guy. The Giants just paid too much for him (much like the Zito signing).

    Nice. I see Aaron as a sprinter. Bet that dude can push out the watts.

    Cool article, always helps legitimize cycling to the masses when a Pro athelete in "traditional" stick and ball sports talks of his appreciation for cycling.

    Dude, how you could write such a lucid sentence 25 minutes after we got back from a hard Attachment 13821130 mile night ride is amazing to me.

    Not to be picky, but nothing is like the Zito signing.

    Zito is getting something like $18M in 2010 and Rowand is due $12M. That's ~$30M tied up with two players that had average, at best, seasons in 09. These contracts are also preventing the team from a much needed bat in the middle of the order.
