Bye Bye Buddy!


boyerbartonIn a boring bit of baseball bartering, the Atlanta Braves bumped Blaine Boyer out of their bullpen — and beyond the borders of the Big Peach — in exchange for Brian Barton of the St. Louis Cardinals. The beer barons of Budweiser who built the basically brand-new ebullient Busch Stadium, believe Boyer will bolster their own beleaguered bullpen; Barton meanwhile will battle for ball-playing opportunities below the big leagues — in AAA.

    “Bye Bye Buddy” was calling out for a “B” rating–how many B’s can you fit in a single paragraph?–but I’d give it an A plus! Pure poetry!!
