Thanks to Michael Hurta for pointing out that the autopsy is not yet complete, so it’s not yet certain. Caminiti appeared at one point to be willing to try to get better, but it’s too bad that he didn’t make it.

According to Ed Sherman of (no link included because of their unexplained need for readers to log in) Pat Hughes loves working with Santo and doesn’t want the TV job right now, if offered. That’s great news for WGN listeners via radio or webcast. You can go to and read Ed Sherman’s latest column for more. God bless those two. Hearing Pat and Ron doing Cubs games via webcast is one of the good things in my life.
