Starting Off on the Wrong Foot
We like to take the business approach to baseball. Ball players are assets, containing both intrinsic and monetary value. Sell high. Buy low. Buy a Beemer, but not before the home is gutted and upgraded. Defense matters. Prospects are overrated. Everything we knew about baseball statistics for the first 150 or so years doesn't really matter.
Bang-bang plays at first base. Striking out the side. Nineteen-Ninety-Two and Three. Triples. Pretty girls wearing Jays jerseys. Brooks Kieschnick. Yeah, I think we'll make do.
