The tone around here has been fucking ghastly-- glum & hopeless, with the occasional vitriol and ledge-jumping thrown in.
Folks, as frustrating as the mishandling of Brian N. Anderson has been, as patently useless the signing of Grinderstad, and as stomach-turning the stubbornness of Captain Oz (and KW's apparent inability to stand up to him) has become, sometimes you just have to shake your head, chalk it up to the vagaries of baseball, and have a good laugh.
Which is why I'd like to share the following link with you: http://youtube.com/watch?v=7n36lYGA9Nw
I don't know whether any of you remember a less than stellar ballplayer by the name of Jim Traber, or how many of you already know what that link is, but that is apparently how baseball brawls are done in Japan. Please note Traber's power-mullet, and the heads-up use of instant replay for Traber's final "move"...
I challenge the SSS faithful to link to a funnier baseball clip.
And in the meantime, quit cryin', and revel in our $100 million Mendoza-line nine.
