If he was, George Steinbrenner would
have him bat seventh and say he's overweight."

you along the way.
You spend a good piece of your life
gripping a baseball and in the end it
turns out that it was the other way
around all the time.

I always get back to baseball.
The trouble with baseball is that
it is not played the year round.
One of my favorites
Baseball hasn't forgotten me. I go
to a lot of old-timers games and I
haven't lost a thing. I sit in the bullpen
and let people throw things at me.
Just like old times.
These days baseball is different.
You come to spring training, you get
your legs ready, you arms loose,
your agents ready, your lawyer lined up.
