He’s Like the Reverse Jesus


Saw this item in Buster Olney’s blog today and it made me chuckle, so for those of you that don’t read Buster or the Dayton Daily News, here you go…

Kent Mercker, who hasn’t pitched since early June because of a bad back, was handed an envelope in the clubhouse, and he quickly ripped it open, scanned the thick multi-paged letter and tossed it into the trash.

“Talk about a waste of eight pages of paper,” he said. “It was addressed to: ‘All potential free agents.’ ”

Mercker will be a free agent, but as he said, “What kind of market is out there for me?” Then he paused and said, “Well, hey. I’m left-handed, I’m 40 and I’m well-rested.”

Mercker has tried to play long toss and throw off the mound, “But my back is not working.”

Most likely he is headed for retirement and said, “I’m starting my new profession — turning vodka into urine.”
