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.
