    I'll feign excitement when he becomes a pitcher.

    I'll feign excitement when he...

    Turns a single handed triple play.

    Jerry Gil now plays for a team that emerges nightly from a cornfield. D.T. Cromer is the 1B. Jeff Jones, Mike Frank and Van Snider make up the OF. D.J. Mattox and Luke Prokopec are rotation cornerstones though Luke Hudson is, of course, the ace.

    Who's Jerry Gil?
    Rob Neyer: "Any writer who says he'd be a better manager than the worst manager is either 1) lying (i.e. 'using poetic license') or 2) patently delusional. Which isn't to say managers don't do stupid things that you or I wouldn't."

    With more strikeouts...if that's possible.

    I was thinking of a AA Pedro Cerrano. Straight ball he hit hard. Curve ball not so much. Gil's gonna go vodoo with the Bats.

    Stay tuned.
    Some people play baseball. Baseball plays Jay Bruce.

    Um, that's pretty much Rolando Roomes.

    Someone said he would have batted .500 in the minors if he wasn't striking out. And if my aunt had wheels she'd be a wagon, too.

    IIRC his D was pretty solid. Or am I mistaken?

    I was thinking Keefe Cato, but Neu would do. Now if somebody can just remember who that scrappy 2B the Reds had in Chattanooga in 1998 (the one princeton loved), we'd have a team for the ages.
