Jim Edmonds changed the name of his St Louis steakhouse to 'The Precinct'.
What is next: Molina's Montgomery Inn? If Tony LaRussa opens a place your meal starts on time, but then a rain delay occurs as soon as appetizers arrive. Join the discussion and mocking below.
Nerve of Jim Edmonds. Former All-Star CF changed name of his St.Louis Steakhouse to PRECINCT! " Meet me in St. Louis" know what I mean Jim?— Jeff Ruby (@TheRealJeffRuby) October 24, 2013
For Jeff Ruby, this is the steakhouse that started it all. In 1981 and in the midst of one of the worst economies in a generation, The Precinct was born in the former Cincinnati Police Patrol House Number 6. This turn-of-the-century, Romanesque-style structure would hold what is now the longest, continuously running white tablecloth restaurant in the city.

Choo on Yankees menu
Multiple sources say the Yankees do like Choo very much. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman declined comment about Choo specifically but noted that outfield isn't their top priority for a team that has many needs. The Yankees have quite the puzzle, as a team that had a $230-million payroll but has several big salaries coming off the books and a stated desire to get below $189 million on the payroll.
Why can't pitchers be managers?
Wall Street Journal
Only 48 major-league pitchers in baseball history have gone on to manage at least one game—the fewest of any position. This is despite the fact that pitchers make up nearly half a team's roster. Two are currently active: Farrell and San Diego's Bud Black. Cincinnati hired former pitcher Bryan Price on Tuesday as manager, but Price never reached the majors.
By way of contrast, 71 second basemen have become managers, as well as 104 outfielders and 112 catchers—a group that includes current Cardinals skipper Mike Matheney.
Price's qualities no secret

“He’s been prepared for this for awhile. He watches a game not only like a pitching coach, but like a manager does,” Melvin said. “He, for quite a while, for me, he was as good of a resource for me as much as my bench coach as far as input, game decisions. It’s not like I only talked to him about pitching decisions, I talked to him about everything. He has a very good awareness of everything that’s happening on the field and on everything that happens in the game.”
