So last week Carlos Ruiz and I were at the secret Chick-fil-A that's open on Sundays for super celebrities and the topic of his noted affinity for wryly humorous metaphors came up (it was around the third beer--secret Chick-Fil-A is also secret BYOB, FYI):
"So, ZWR, what's your take on our current pitching situation?", he asked.As we turned our attention back to our respectively delicious and super secret Sunday lunches, the promise of the 2011 season filled the air.
"It's rather amazing, I'd say, Chooch", I said... to Chooch. He looked up from his perfectly breaded nuggets.
"It's almost as if anyone can be our fifth starter. I mean that on a deeper level, too, ZWR. It's allusory and--somewhat comically, mind you--concrete."
"Concur, Chooch. Concur."
I nodded. Chooch smiled--and ate another nugget.
