Would love stories if you've heard anything from her and she doesn't mind you telling
Did not know that. Bouton spoke highly of him. That's all I knew besides his baseball skills.
We need the Blue Jays to put up a little bit of a fight here... a scenario where our (potential) opponent has a fat rest while we deal with a tooth and nail series would be a bummer
I'll ask for more details next when I see her. If I don't talk about it over the next month, try to remind me again in mid November. We should be all moved into our new house by then and both of our lives should be a little more slowed down. All she has said when he's mentioned is how weird he was, he didn't bathe so he smelled horrible ALL the time and amongst the people she knew, they all felt he was most likely to go on a shooting rampage or have dead bodies hidden somewhere.
Is this what you are talking about, FSU?
This series.....and in these coming games. He's been a zero in clutch situations, can't have 2 on, 1 out and hit something so soft it didn't even qualify for in infield fly.
Bouton was a bit of a dick, too. Broke the code of the clubhouse.
Made for a great book, though.
Certainly not a conventional thinker. Nothing wrong with that.
Likes Muddy Waters, too. Gotta like that.
Code breaker? ... yes indeed. Great book? Oh yeah ... that's an understatement. I loved Ball Four.
Wow...Bouton was the code breaker guy who invented the Enigma device?
Shit, I thought it was somebody named Cumberbatch...
Smart + Ass = SmartAss
bravo, sir ...
"try the veal..."
he is a jerk who thinks he knows everything
very intelligent guy
but as i often say, there's a huge difference between being "book smart" and having "street smarts" or common sense
he trains pitchers to throw in what he refers to as the most economical/effective way without the risk of injury
and since scouts/organizations don't see the talent in his players
he then [naturally] spins it to baseball has blacklisted him
dude is the epitome of a narcissistic megalomaniac
or the broken leg of lamb
Either one..."they're the best in the city"...
so long as you don't forget to tip your waitresses
The leg of lamb line was on loan from the great Rodney.
The no respect guy, not the bow and arrow guy.
For wearing his cap like a complete asshole, the bow and arrow idiot should be the no respect guy...
