“Rob Works for His Father’s Construction Firm”


It is not irony, but rather some version of meaningful coincidence, that Rob Deer — who distinguished himself as a ballplayer for his commitment to the three true outcomes — that Deer’s options for offseason employment (at least ca. 1987) would so obviously have just one possible outcome.

    You’re assuming this was just an offseason gig?

    Construction is a good way to make a fortune. I sense you are looking down on the profession.

      I remember Carson saying something on a recent podcast about how the best poetry occurs when the reader’s mind makes, on it’s own, the natural connections contained in the poem’s verse. Unfortunately, my mind’s tumblers are completely unclicked here. No idea either…

    How many conflicts it must have raised within the Deer household, that Deer the Elder owned a construction firm, and that Deer the Younger was himself a firm of destruction.

    Maybe it’s because Deer was a big white dude with facial hair.

    Anyway, I find it much more interesting that Deer and Pete Incaviglia both made their full-season debuts in the same year: 1986.
