Comment of the Day

Varitek’s pitch calling ability is the stuff of myth, legend, and outright fiction. And as of right now, he can’t do ANYTHING. Can’t hit, can’t throw, can’t block pitches, can’t run. If I forgot something, just assume that he can’t do it. There’s an argument to be made that he is the worst player in the majors who still gets regular playing time. And he’ll make the postseason roster because, hey, he’s the CAPTAIN.

– Jeff Berardi, in the Quote of the Day thread. Please, no one make a great comment in this thread. I think that if you have a comment of the day in a “Comment of the Day” thread you go back in time or the universe collapses in on itself or something.

    Only if you post this over at NBC, the odds of which (making a comment more insightful) are about the same as Richard Simmons being mistaken for a Chippendale’s dancer.

    Willie Mays, Mets, 1973 NLCS and World Series:  Three singles, no walks, 16 innings in center field, two putouts, one error.

    See, these things happen.
