Emilio Bonifacio to rehab in Jupiter Wednesday

            Emilio Bonifacio is scheduled to start a rehab assignment Wednesday in Single-A Jupiter, and said he’s on track to return to the team during its four-game series in Colorado this week.

            Bonifacio sprained his thumb Aug. 3 in Washington while fielding a ground ball, and is eligible to come off the disabled list Sunday for the series finale against the Rockies. He re-injured the same thumb that had kept him out for an extended amount of time earlier this season.

In addition to hitting the ball off the tee Saturday, Bonifacio said he has resumed other baseball activities such as fielding and catching.

Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen said he felt moving Bonifacio back to the outfield upon his return might be the safest move. Bonifacio started 47 games in center field and started 14 at second base after the Marlins traded Omar Infante to Detroit.

 “I’m ready to go,” Bonifacio said. “It doesn’t really bother me as long as I can play.”

I responded to your question on the previous thread. I point that out because I know you hate to be ignored — and truthfully, so do I.

You are talking about reporters when they were worth the name, journalists. Those 3 guys you mentioned were giants. It must have been a thrilling time for you. Were they also scotch drinkers? Evans ans Novack at least seem like they might have been more of the abstainer mode. Is there stuff on the net that you have written that is open to us?


Stan M,
Evans was a notorious Scotch drinker and a notoriously crazy driver, which is not a good combination. Not sure about Novak. Buchwald liked martinis and Pouilly Fuisse (or fuzzy p@ussy, as we used to call it).
Have to go spend some time with my family in Oregon. Maybe when I get back, some of us can get together and I could dig out some old clips. Most of the time I was writing in Washington, the internet didn't even exist.


Stan M,
Let me start over. What I meant to say was that NOVAK was a notorious Scotch drinker. I think Evans was kind of a straight arrow. Novak used to race around town in his Corvette, scaring the hell out of pedestrians and fellow drivers. I remember on one occasion, he ran over a bicyclist (who was taken to the hospital, but survived). But you're right — he was a super journalist.
