When that pic was first posted I almost commented but Stephen since you commented, read the attached. Growing up in Detroit, I am well aware of McClain. Not to be argumentative, but if the scumbag isn't still in prison, he should be. I personally knew families of victims of him and his partner raiding the meat packing plant.

That's quite a read Lee -- yep like Gates Brown said -- the sleight of hand Denny used on the mound in fooling so many hitters, landed him in the pokey in the business world
-- somewhere along the way too he had a nightmarish experience when the cops called in the middle of the night, or maybe came to his door, to tell he & wife Sharon their 19 year old daughter had been killed in a car wreck....

I remember that. I lived about 20 minutes from where it happened at the time. Apparently she was a really good kid.
