It looks like the shortstop he was vexed with was Brendan Ryan.
Considering how many front office women there were at the ball park, how many front office women are undercover cleat chasers and how many of those women were throwing around the word “networking” like it was something you did at a minor-league beer party, maybe my new roommate was a blessing in disguise?
Did he edit the article, or am I missing where he talked about being vexed with a SS?
A minor league all-star game is about as useful as wings on a bowling ball.
A flying bowling ball would make for a hell of a fun sport.
So you didn't have the best time when you were chosen to play in a professional baseball all-star game?
That actually seems like it would be incredibly useful. A flying bowling ball would make for a hell of a fun sport.
on the other hand, wow, that's some low-level "women don't belong around the game" subtextual BS going on there.
I'd bet most minor league fans don't even notice that the ASG is happening.
"But, almost as if he noticed me tuning him out, he rolled over supine and launched into that clogged, guttural, unholy snore that only the drunken and obese can produce."
Anyway Hayhurst makes a pretty good argument that these dumb things should be disbanded, because it's unlikely the major league teams are getting anything from this either. The whole thing is stupid, even without the fat guy vomiting into the bath tub.
I didn't care for it, an opinion shared by a few others. Had I realized that offering critical comments on the quality of the posted material was no longer acceptable here at Primer, I surely would have refrained from his horrible breach of etiquette. But now, I will try my damnest to only provide positive, life-affirming commentary, best exemplified by the collected works of Posters 18 and 19.
A simple FU would have been less cruel.
OK, I will stop telling you to stop being honest about how you feel about others being honest about how they felt. Honest.
God forbid any of those people read that whiner Jim Bouton's books.
I've been to two minor league All-Star games. California League 1998 in Lancaster and Eastern League 2012 in Reading. I enjoyed both of them. I have to admit, I'd enjoy just about any game at Reading. I love that ballpark.
To be fair, he seems to think everyone in minor league baseball is an uncontrollable, drunken horn dog and a idiot.
The second time, he was older and smarter and just went home.
