It only took four months — give a take a day or two — but Junior finally took my advice and added a player.
Actually, I said a player or two, but I’ll take one for now.
Grady Sizemore will be coming down the Northeast Extension this afternoon and be in uniform tonight. He’ll play left, center, or right. He can still hit and might breathe life into the Phillies, who just swept Milwaukee, in case you haven’t been keeping up.
That’s okay, if you abandoned ship, no problem. I’m here to get you back in the boat.
The playoffs boat, I’m taking tickets and driving. Junior added a player, Ruf is due back, Lee is starting to throw the heater, Utley found his stroke — hiding beneath the floor mats of his SUV.
The Piece went yard yesterday, his 15th of the season and 55th RBI, and Sizemore threw away his Ez Pass-sun visors-attachable-clip-on somewhere along the 476 — called the Blue Route by us old heads.
Hundred-miles-an-hour Giles and Papelbon and the bullpen young guns have arrived.
Baseball is back in town.
Whether Sizemore hits or not, here’s one thing he will do: Make Dom Brown nervous as a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Looking over his shoulder, maybe Dom won’t be so happy coming to the park and will become Dom—May 2013—Brown.
Here’s something else — Sizemore will lead off Friday against the Nationals. That might make Revere nervous as a Shih Tzu in a room full of unaltered cats. Maybe Revere will start hitting and running and actually catching balls that Victorino and Rowand would eat for lunch.
Could be Revere might not see center again for a while.
I’m so excited.
Do you think they will give out those white towels again?
