the designated hittee
for those of you who don't regularly play fantasy baseball and hence don't honestly come by these useless knowings in the course of their daily lives, let me share with you the great (great as in large) news that boof literally embodies the full corpulent spirit of brad penny at his corpulent brad penny-est, combined with the perennial pitching futility of paul byrd--boof followed up his rookie season era of 5.10 with a sophomore effort of 6.16.
of course, i could be wrong, and maybe boof stuck with that austerity diet the twins had him on while he was throwing apart his pitching shoulder, but i'm thinking now that both curt schilling and brad penny are off the roster, and since its been so many years since rich "el guapo" garces has graced the clubhouse, that there also needed to be somebody to fill those oversized shoes, to go with the oversized opponents' batting average.
i'm thinking, in vegas somewhere, somebody already has the line on how many leadoff homers curtis granderson is going to hit at fenway this year...
