Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 3-25-2019

Pittsburgh Press, March 25, 1919:

“I see,” remarks Pat Moran, “that Bud Weiser, the outfielder, is again on the ineligible list of the Philadelphia club. Weiser is one of the few ballplayers who get set down through their conversational propensities.
Weiser says things forcefully, and somehow or other, he seems to generally select President Baker of the Philadelphia club to say them to. I distinctly remember one occasion when Mr. Baker criticized some play Weiser made and Weiser requested the president to go to the place where it is always tropical; he also commented on Mr. Baker’s appearance, ancestry, habits, and even his style of clothing.

I’m just impressed that Baker didn’t lose his temper and pound some Bud Weiser.

Picked up some baseball equipment at Dick's Sporting Goods (Baltimore area) this weekend, and in the checkout counter saw they had clearance priced Manny Machado lego packs. Only 74 cents, so I picked up 2 as both of my daughters are very much into legos, and baseball, and mature enough to not blame Manny for moving to San Diego when he was offered 300 million dollars.

While my youngest was putting Manny together she dropped his elbow, much is an incredibly tiny piece, maybe a millimeter long. Spent a long time helping her look for it on the floor, but we could not find it. I hope this doesn't portend Tommy John surgery in Manny's future.

Just keep Lego Manny away from your other Legos, or else there will be pieces missing from them too.
