pouring out some high life for the dearly departedMirabelli released
katie: no more chicken parm!
kelly: and yet, i am NOT excited about the kevin cash era.
katie: are you implying you were at some point excited about the doug mirabelli era?
kelly: well, i mean, if you had a drunk, layabout, wifebeater-wearing uncle who lived in the trailer down the street, would you really want to wake up one day and find out that he'd been replaced by … some other dude who also couldn't hit a baseball to save his life? so maybe excited is the wrong word, but.
katie: yeah, but he's a YOUNGER dude who can't hit a baseball to save his life. that means he can keep not hitting baseballs well into the future while the drunk, layabout, wifebeater-wearing uncle is only going to get older. I'd rather see my uncle retire to a slightly nicer trailer where he can indulge his vices without having to worry about keeping in "shape."
kelly: i'm still hoping that george kottaras will somehow make the team. there need to be more professional athletes named george. also, he is foxy-looking.
katie: foxy? he looks a little like zach braff. do we have any evidence he can catch for wake?
kelly: i thiiiiiiink he's caught the knuckleballers that the sox have in AAA. still, nothing wrong with a trial by fire! i'm sure someone named GEORGE can handle it.
katie: I think george is just going to have bide his time in AAA until wake realizes he's older than the hills and calls it quits. or, moves on to whatever stage of indentured servitude his lifetime contract specifies for his post-retirement years.
kelly: i would just like a backup catcher who can hit better than coco crisp with one arm tied behind his back? is that too much to ask? sigh.
I would suggest that it's too much to ask when your starting catcher has a somewhat inconsistent history of being able to hit a baseball himself, but I don't take tek's name in vain, so.
katie: I'm posting our convo re: dougie
kelly: good work. make sure to link to that picture of foxy george kottaras.
seriously, he's not that foxy.
