At least he's hot

From the Dayton Daily online:

On their first day at Wrigley Field Monday, veteran Kent Mercker and rookie Jason Standridge were standing in right field when Standridge noticed a flag flapping on a pole in the right field corner that read, "Williams, 26."
Said Standridge, "I didn't know they put up flags for the day's starting pitchers," referring to Chicago's Monday starter, Jerome Williams. Standridge was unaware the flag was for Hall of Fame Cubs outfielder Billy Williams.
"Yeah, they do," Mercker said with a deadpan. Pointing to two other flags, Mercker said, "And Ernie Banks is pitching Tuesday and Ron Santo on Wednesday."
