Nick Punto: More than just a fun name to say!
Nick Punto is a BACK UP, people. A BACK UP. I have gotten two e-mails today on how he could push my precious, amazing husband, Kevin Youkilis out of the lineup.
Will not happen. And I refuse to read any more blogs that try to frighten me. If I want to be frightened, I will watch the news. Or read about ebola or something.
Youkilis will NOT be traded. I know this.
Because, see, God and I had a conversation…
Back to the topic at hand, Nick Punto has a great name. An absolutely great name. Punto. I love it. He has just nabbed a 2-year, $3 million deal.
And I’m happy with him. Thrilled with him. He’s like Jed Lowrie, but will require less bandaids.
If, however, and this is a teeth-gritting if… if he leads to the trade of MY Kevin Youkilis, I will rain down such blogging venom that all the world will tremble and blink apostrophes.
So, Nick Punto. I think we have an understanding. Let’s learn about YOU! Hmm. You are old. You were born in 1977. You went to a place called Saddleback (hah) College. You were drafted by… ah… the Red Sox. Wiki, you are so helpful. You were one of four Twins nicknamed Piranhas. That’s great. If you don’t suck, that is what I will call you. Or Punty.
You played for the Phillies too…
You had time to play for a lot of teams, being around sine 1977…
Wow, you sucked in 2007. I remember 2007 being a swell year…
And you signed with the Cardinals this year.
Okay. I can deal with you, Punto.
AS LONG AS YOU GET ALONG WITH YOUKILIS.
PS- in crummy news, we are officially Darvishless.
