I like the Giants more now.

Postby Pogotheostrich » Wed Dec 07, 2005 11:52 am

From Jayson Stark's latest column:
And if he thought it was challenging before, trying to clone himself when he had a working cell phone, on Tuesday he discovered it was practically hopeless without one.

You see, the GM awoke to find his last link with the rest of civilization had been shut down without notice. And that's a conspiratorial subplot that might just sum up the insanity of Colletti's life over the last 3½ weeks.

Who turned off that cell phone? Not the phone company. Not his new team. It was, instead, his former team, the hated Giants. And they were able to knock him off the airwaves for good reason.

Because they happen to be paying for that cell phone. Which they handed out to him when he still worked there. Which he hasn't had time to change since the Dodgers hired him. And which he has been using to assemble a team whose main mission in life is to beat the Giants. So, hey, who can blame them?

"Of all the days in the year to have your cell phone shut off," Colletti laughed, "how about this one?"

By dinner time, though, he'd managed to get his dial tone back. Which merely allowed him to turn back to the next 7,500 items on his to-do list.

That's hilarious. You'd think the Dodgers would have had him set up with a new cell and all that stuff immediately. ;-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Maybe Coletti's been calling the Giants hopefuls.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
