For the Children: Coloring Book of Great Baseball Fights

The author and his wife are currently visiting a home that is populated by, among other sorts of people, a young girl who has invested heavily in coloring books of princesses. This is entirely acceptable for other families; however, at such a time as Carson Cistulli reproduces — an act which admittedly would necessitate a sort of intimacy which my wife attempts to avoid at all costs — his children will have at their disposal only educational sorts of coloring books. Like one depicting great fights from baseball history, for example — samples of which hypothetical coloring book one can find below. (Click, embiggen.)

    Descent into the first person? For shame. Apparently, your wife’s refusal to subscribe to this category (http://www.fangraphs.com/not/category/cistulli-f__k-that-guy/) is really getting to you.

    If you read this post while Manager’s Corner is on, it’s even better. “Don Stanhouse was an asshole.”
