Mark Grace takes leave of absence
I read Mark Grace is taking a leave of absence from the Diamondbacks booth to take care of personal issues. Apparently Thursday night or morning he was arrested for his 2nd DUI. I don't wanna make light of this by no means because drinking and driving is not a good thing to do but i'm surprised this happened and that he put himself in this position. Luckily nobody was hurt and I wish the best for Mark Grace. Hopefully he can get past this and move on. He always seemed like a good broadcaster whenever i've heard him.

"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
