To Continue...

Six little outfielders, nothing here to fix,
Then we get caught by the intercostal Hicks.
Five little outfielders, they're getting pretty slow
Which one will be the next to go?

—T.S. Eliot

Ells, Hicks...Stanton is kind of fragile, Hardy has his issues...

Will we see a Red-McKinney-Judge outfield sometime this year?

John M said...

Gardy, not Hardy.

Add a word to the last line and it scans better:

"Which one will be the very next to go?"

I will guess Ellsbury. That is, he will return next Thursday, when his 10-day disabled list expires, but he will immediately incur a new injury.

The master just intoned that you can't predict baseball.

Sublime.

I would guess that Clint Frazier can't believe his bad luck. Concussed, really woozy -- and now, an unexpected opportunity goes to someone else.

Oi vey,

Judge sucks. Just release him already!

And this new guy, John Carl? What has he done in the last 24 hrs?

Just gut the team now and reload for christ's sake!

John M., I thought by "Hardy," you were referring to our own Joe Hardy, who would be Judge.

Nice win, with a whole different cast contributing. Bad result in Tampa, though, particularly since Price pitched well.

It felt like ODUMODU was raging almost openly through their many empty seats in Toronto tonight, as visible as Tom Hanks' demon in "Cloud Atlas." Back-to-back doubles by Pearce and Yangervis, two guys Cashman got rid of for no good reason. The JuJu gods were glowering...and we won through.
