BANG! ZOOM! Thank goodness for John Patterson.
This win has left me pretty much speechless; well, the brevity is really attributable to a crunch for time this morning, but I prefer the more dramatic interpretation. As an aside, Frank Robinson was quoted as saying:
I'd love to test that theory.
Nat at Bat: Bud Selig.
He's technically a Nat. And his preference for Team Lernersten isn't exactly being guarded vigilantly by the sentinel of suppression. From Newsday's Jon Heyman:
Kasten is a personable New Yorker who had a big part in building the Braves dynasty. But he has some different ideas, one being to remove agents from the game. He's said he doesn't believe player compensation should be based on the skill level of his agent. (In other words, he thinks some agents are too smart for some executives - he's right about that.)
Hey, Bud? I think it's safe to wave 'em in.
