Insert bad pun here

Apologies in advance, but I can see endless bad pun possibilities coming up with this afternoon's game in The Big Ballpark In The Bronx - the Yankees' Roger Clemens (career stats: 304 wins, 4068 strikeouts) will be pitching against the Royals' Jimmy Gobble (career stats: 2 wins, 7 strikeouts). For some reason, the names 'David' and 'Goliath' spring to mind., never afraid to use and abuse bad puns, have begun already: "Yankees look to Gobble up Royals". Look out for variations on the same theme as the afternoon wears on...
