With Harrison on the shelf for the rest of the year with a broken hand, you gotta believe that there will be plenty of cameras and crew reuniting to make um-teen new commercials to bore the hell out of us during next season. Between Cervelli, Polonco and now Harrison, I have to think they pull more hammys than a pig butcher. (And break more bones than a competitive wing eater)
SAVE SOME MONEY on all of these alternate uniforms and get these guys some Life Alert Bracelets! Can you imagine the receptionist at Allegheny Health Network were you to try to get an appointment? I picture: “Hello, Mr. Boxing Jimmy, this is Allegheny Health Network and once again we will have to cancel your appointment as we are overwhelmed with dealing with the Pirates players. We just don’t have time to handle our regular patients.” Listen close to the tagline they offer in commercials: “Major League Care for Major League Patients.” And they mean it literally! You ain’t gettin’ in. Iron Man, J Hay, and El Fragile have their own private parking spots.
Lastly, the Bucs are leading Cinci 3-0 as I write this. We will see if it holds. Where’s Waldo Rodriguez has contributed his normal 0-fer day. I have to believe that if Waldo (.186) and Stewart (.185) ever went to a singles hook-up club that they would both strike out looking.
