Ahoy, me mateys! The man has off an’ traded some prospects for a raspy old fart name of Bud Norris! Arrgh! Methinks that Bud is not but a landlubber. This trade rattles me down to da bones, lads. We bin hornswaggled again! The scallywags we got in the front office have done it this time. Reminds me of the days of Esteban Loaiza, Lurch Hendrickson, Brett Tomko, Kevin Correia, and Fausto Carmona. Fausto! Now that was a right good name for a pirate, mateys!
Least when we had Vicente Padilla we could laugh about when he got shot in the leg! Bud Norris? We needs to send him to Davey Jones locker.
Now as for the shark bait on the offense, let’s see who dinna pull their weight yesterday:
Howie was 0 for 4 with 2 K’s – Give ‘im the ol’ heave ho!
Scotty Van Slyke with his pinch strikeout – Blimey!
Chris Taylor dinna even swing his lumber
Yasmani gotta dinger, but was only 1 for 4 – Avast!
