Peace, Yamaico. We hardly knew ye…
No wonder you got so much playing time lately, Yamaico! You were Theo Epstein’s very own version of a buyer’s showcase.
It was almost good while it lasted, Yamaico. I mean, it was okay. I mean, it didn’t suck. Most of the time. You hit the ball that one time. Remember?
I feel like we should say a few words about our evicted comrade.
Like… share our favorite Yamaico memories. Okay.
It was cool. When you hit the ball. That one time. It was a homerun? In Texas, maybe?
Have fun in Kansas. There’s lots to do in Kansas. Really. Everyone’s favorite movie is based in Kansas.
I mean, I think “Wizard of Oz” was filmed in California. And um… most of it is based in… um… Oz… But. Um.
And they have a lot of farms in Kansas. And everyone has to eat. I like eating.
Oh. And there’s that possibility that a tornado might sweep you up into a colorful metaphor for growing up.
Have a good life.
“I think it’s probably good for him because I think he’ll get a chance to probably play more there than he would here,” Francona said. “We certainly wish him well.”
In other news, you were replaced by Mike Aviles, called a “utility” infielder.
I wish I had paid better attention when the Royals were in town.
I think THIS is encouraging, at least.
