Meanwhile, over in Shelbyville...




While we're sitting here, pondering the meaning of a sell-off of prospects in pursuit of unclear objectives, over in Red Sox Nation, they're actually afraid of the Todd Frazier-David Robertson-Tommy Kahnle trade.

I suppose the grass is always greener over the septic tank, as the underrated Erma Bombeck once wrote...

No more than three weeks ago (Clint) Frazier comes up and we were treated to a (Joe) Frazier reference homerun call. John's head is probably spinning right now that (Todd) Frazier is now here. Does he just recycle "Downtown goes Frazier" and everyone that comes through with that name gets it? Mark Reynolds' call was "You're on the Mark, Reynolds" (Of course stolen from one half of Teixeira's call) during his brief stay. And he has recycled other calls too. Anyone 2 day plug in during the dark days of 2013 that had the initials CC got "Whoever will CC you later" (I'm still shocked that wasn't Chris Carter's) and Matsui once even got "An A-Bomb" call.

I hope John doesn't ruin the uniqueness of his best call in years. (Todd) Frazier is nicknamed the Toddfather, I think... I really have no idea I heard it once. Hopefully John just tries to shoehorn in a Godfather quote. However my expectations are low since I don't think John has seen a movie since the 50's.
