Goold: Jordan Hicks growing into his blazing, eight-alarm arm | St. Louis Cardinals | stltoday.com

“Talent does get you to the big leagues, but talent doesn’t make your teammates like you and want to help you, and doesn’t keep you there,” Hicks said this past week. “You don’t want to be that guy. I definitely didn’t want to be that guy. But I had to learn some things. The difference here is I feel more comfortable. I have a job to do. I have to be a leader more than anything for the guys who aren’t on the big-league team. I have to be that good influence.

“Be on time. Do my work,” he listed. “Be a professional.”

I'm picturing a baby named Jordan Hicks who lives alone in a giant arm that, despite having 8 alarms, is on fire. Won't someone save that baby!

To me it suggests a kid who was born with a genetic abnormality such that he has one massively huge arm, and it's also chronically inflamed. But it's better, now, because he's finally starting to grow into it.
