I got a axe-handle pistol
On a graveyard frame
That shoot tombstone bullets
Wearin' balls and chains
I'm drinkin' TNT
I'm smokin' dynamite
I HOPE some screwball... start a fight!
Because I'm ready
Readyas anybody can be.
actually a Willie Dixon song...
Considering he only hit 153, you must’ve watched an awful lot of at bats before you got to that home run.
edit: Let me say again then I’m not complaining about the move, I just don’t see it as being necessary. Any waiver pick up is essentially risk free, so there’s no reason not to do it, I just didn’t know why we had interest in a power guy who hasn’t been able to hit in the majors, although it is a small sample size. Power is useless if you can’t hit the ball.1
I’m not upset, I was just wondering why. Someone else made the comment that the Likely intent was to slip him through waivers and have him be first base at Norfolk, which is reasonable. But no, we’ve got a lot of first baseman types already and we don’t need another one, even if he’s left-handed. And yes, in his cup of coffee he was lousy, and it was only a cup of coffee, but remember the jump between triple A And the majors is the biggest jump of them all, and it is to be expected that most players don’t make the jump. So the onus is on him to prove that he can.
