No, not Manny Ramirez. We're talking Richard Ramirez. The infamous "Night Stalker" of serial killer notoriety. Mariners pitcher Miguel Batista throws his name out there along with David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz, Ted Bundy and other crazies in this rather interesting website. It's being used to promote his The Avenger of Blood fiction novel. Look, I won't promise it will change your life or anything. But I can guarantee you that you won't find anything similar out there by a major league ballplayer.
Do I have anything new on Jarrod Washburn? Nope. Arthur Rhodes? Other than the same reports that say the Marlins are interested in him? No. Erik Bedard? He's still here. Not going anywhere.
In other words, Batista will have to do for now. If anything, the audio alone on the site makes visiting it worthwhile.
