It’s generally the custom of the present author to confine the headlines of his posts to just a single line. Such is the importance of this particular post, however, that it’s necessitated a violation of that very sound practice, and whatever monstrosity of design it’s created.

    It was Groton or Milton for me, but I’m glad I chose to be really really terrible for Flaherty’s teams.

    As a child I overheard Roberto Hernandez chatting in the Royals bullpen during Spring Training.

    He asked the guy sitting next to him why Endy Chavez hadn’t been sent down. His pen mate said that because Chavez was left handed, they were trying to keep him on the Major League club to better leverage platoon splits against then Tigers starter Jeff Weaver.

    To this Hernandez replied “if we’re worried about Jeff fucking Weaver, we’ve got a lot bigger problems than needing a left handed leadoff hitter.”

    It wasn’t until now that I realized he was quoting Yeats.
