The Baseball Desert

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

Cleaning up and cleaning house has a brief piece on 'bag day' at Fenway Park. It doesn't quite have the allure of Truck Day, but it is a significant day in the baseball calendar. As ever, it was Tito who had the best and most poignant quote of the day:
Lefty Craig Breslow played solitaire at the players' table as he waited for a jump for a dead car battery. Francona emerged from his office, saw the pitcher and said, "Brez, there's no game."
Concise, to the point and, unfortunately, true.
