Goodnight, Sweet Prince...Au Revoir, Dewayne

Dewayne Wise ($10 to renew for 1 year)

Here lies Larry "Dewayne" Wise. 

He came to us with high hopes, a willing attitude, and a grindiness so rarely seen in colored athletes.  ;) 

Today, I want to take a moment to formally bid him adieu. 
In less than a week, my year of proudly sponsoring Dewayne will come to an expiring close.  I have the option of renewing my sponsorship for even less than I paid for him last year; but since he'll be donning another team's colors in 2010, I am choosing to part ways with fond memories in my heart and a single tear slowly making its way down my cheek. 

Dewayne Wise made Thursdays memorable. 

Dewayne Wise made The Catch.

Dewayne Wise hit a PH grand slam off of Farnsworth with 2 outs in the 8th, on September 14th, 2008.  
You may recall the night...Zambrano was pitching a no-no or something like that, whatever, who fucking cares :) and stole all the media's attention.  Well, I haven't forgotten your September 14th, D-Wheezy.  Your slam led us to win that game, therefore keeping us alive in the home stretch and leading us to take the division in 163 a couple weeks later. 
Oh, and BA wouldn't have done that! 

I raise my glass to Dewayne Wise!

And just for good measure, here's one final "Is this your homework, Larry???" from your loving sponsor of yesteryear:  The PS.
