You're my man, Charles---not Albert. He would swing for the fence, but it would be hauled in at the warning track. I like my odds better with you.
I like how you think, but have no interest in being hit by a 98MPH fastball in the ear.

I don't have to tell you that the one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has been erased like a blackboard, only to be rebuilt and then erased again. But baseball has marked time while America has rolled by like a procession of steamrollers.

It was more than enough effort to dispel your silly notion that you HAVE to pitch to every batter.
