Hanrahan, that pederast ...

Jon Rauch has been traded. Where does not matter. The fact that he will no longer be a closer does.

Despite Washington's "closer by committee" statement, I'm thinking Joel Hanrahan gets the job. He's already gone in all my leagues, maybe yours, too. If you don't act fast.

**Bonus points for whomever gets the movie reference in the title without Googling it.

Trying to remember... Was that line by Harry S. Truman? Igor Stravinsky? John Cocktoasten? Or just plain old Jane Doe?

Ding ding ding.

Also, there's no period after the "S" in Harry S Truman. His entire middle name was "S".

I hate Tommy Lasorda!!!

Thanks for the heads up, Mike. I got him in a league I REALLY need another saves guy in. (A league where I'm currently carrying Wood and Wagner as closers. Gulp.)

c'mon, Mike. Its too easy. You might as well have used "I am your father, Luke" or "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse."

Now I'm just going to get in my familiar red Oldsmobuick and drive away.

The President's middle name was S, correct. I don't know if there's a canonical answer to whether or not the insurance salesman had a middle name...

Quotes are all well and good, but can we take a moment to appreciate the awesomeness that was 80s-era Tim Matheson?

Ah, Up the Creek... What a fun movie. I can't be the only one who remembers the delectable Heather Merriweather, can I?

Bob Taylor said...

I not only fondly recall the lovely Ms. Merriweather but also that incredibly cheesey, incredibly catchy theme song -- "I'm up the creek ... without a paddle ... I'm up the creek ... something, something ... battle it out!!! Yeah, I'm up the creek!"

Good times.

Bob, the only thing that would reveal our dorkiness more would be if one of us found some way to tie the actress (Jennifer Runyon) to Buffy.

Unless, of course, we were ... I dunno ... blogging about fantasy baseball or something. That'd probably answer any lingering questions about our respective dorkiness.

Bob Taylor said...

You've topped me by knowing the name of the actress -- unless you IMDB'd it ... cheater!

If someday we ever meet up in person, Bock will either accept us as the brothers he always wanted or run away screaming as far as his legs will carry him.

Oh, and it figures a Buffy fan would be concerned about canon. (*Nervously hides seven seasons worth of Buffy DVDs*)

My god, are we turning off the baseball fans showing up here for fantasy talk.

Buffy, Angel, and Firefly: the three most wrongfully ignored series in television history.

Clearly, I have found blood brothers here on the intertron.

Dude, I'm a librarian and a Buffy fan... what else do I have besides strict adherence to the canon? (Well, and fear and surprise and a ruthless efficiency.)
