"No, Theo, don't do it!" He begged.
"Quiet, Ben. This Dice-K guy is a sure thing."
"Won't you please think of the children?! The children, Theo! They don't even know what a gyroball is! I'm not sure it really exists!"
"Enough out of you. Back in the basement you go."
And there Ben would stay, through the bidding and negotiation. He was only let out of the basement once the damage was done, and even then he was given a pencil and a piece of paper and forced to learn how to spell Matsuzaka. It's bad memories for him. He just couldn't go through that again!
Anyway, the Texas Rangers won the bidding. I guess they saw something in this guy, and if Nolan Ryan thinks he's good enough, then I'm looking forward to seeing him pitch. Against us. When we face the Rangers. Wait, why am I looking forward to this? I give up. It's been a slow week. In case nothing else happens and I don't check in before Sunday, have a very Merry Christmas, you all.
I'm sort of hoping that Santa leaves me a right fielder in my stocking. What are you hoping Santa leaves you?
