From the Neverending Email Thread:
Marianne: WHAT WHAT WHAT WTF I NEED A SPREADSHEET OR SOMETHING TO KEEP TRACK OMG WHO TEH FUCK IS ON OUR TEAM NOW
Kristen: 14 third baseman and Mark Loretta, evidently.
P.S. Given all the shit that's hit the fan today, I feel I should probably say SOMETHING. But in general my feeling is about four parts apathy to one part grief. And given that it would shock even me if this front office actually fielded about "14 third basemen" next season, it's obvious the wheeling and dealing is not yet done. Right now, I have little to offer in the way of commentary except that a) I'm going to wait till things seem solid before deciding whether to freak out or not and b) in general, I see any and all potential disaster here as direct fallout from The Theo Situation, and that if it were up to me, he'd still be our GM and probably none of this shit would be happening. But he isn't, he's gone, somebody fucked up, we don't know who and we won't ever really know why, and this is now our lot in life. And it sucks.
But what else is new?
Frankly, I may just end up trying to enjoy next season as a kind of a la carte buffet of new players in my favorite laundry--might just look at it as a pu pu platter from around the league assembled for our sampling by the Red Sox.
In other words, I very well could keep up this coping through denial thing as long as I possibly can. We'll see.
P.P.S. LMAO at this. Choice quotes:
Williams agreed with Clayton's assessment. "I have been watching me some game film in between looking sexy," Williams said. "And I noticed a weakness in their defense. That Dwight Freeney? Big, fast, powerful defensive end? Well—he is also a jive turkey."
"Jive… Ass… Turkey," added Williams.
"Man, Ron Meeks is preaching to the choir and holdin' his hymnal upside-down," said Globetrotter head coach Booby "The Love Enormous" Woods. "We got the strongest front four in the solar system. I don't expect Davy Gravy, Chuckie 'Dump Dump' Dempsey, Wilbert 'Chocolate Supernova' Willis, John Stapleton III, and Anthony 'Human Ditch' Reynolds to let that No. 32 [James] get more than a couple yards before they smack the confetti right out of his bucket..."
"I mean, at least fine them for celebrating," Manning added. "Frankly, it's unbelievable what people let the Globetrotters get away with."
Jive… Ass… Turkey.
