Seems we were sold a Bill Of Goods…
We were told by the Usual Suspects (are they ever right?) that Flabby Jr was the next Babe Ruth. That he was the “Can’t Miss Kid”.
Turns out the only things he can’t miss is a HAPPY MEAL.
After tonight, Flabby Junior is 3 for 18 - he would be 2 for 18 if the Official Scorer hadn’t taken pity on him. He can’t run - on the rare occasion he gets on base, they have someone run for him. He also had his first error tonight - expect many more.
Should Flabby Junior be sent to Buffalo / AAA Ball?
Perhaps Single A ball in Lansing?
Or, better yet, retire and spend the rest of his young life on the couch with a plate of food near by?
What do you think?
