A Wise Man Once Said…
“…when it’s the 9th inning and your pitcher is in the midst of throwing a perfect game with a 5 run lead, go ahead and make the defensive substitution in Center Field.”
Okay, maybe he wasn’t exactly a Wise man, but Dewayne Wise came close to making Ozzie Guillen look sage-like (not to mention one who could predict the future) when his leaping and juggling catch at the wall saved Mark Buehrle’s perfect game.
Guiellen, never one to pour on the praise, admitted that the catch (though not the best he’s ever seen) was easily the best situation for a catch he’s ever witnessed. Or at least that’s what I think he was trying to say. I can’t ever be too sure as I basically only understand every third word that comes out of his mouth.
One thing I understand perfectly, though, is Jonathan Sanchez is still cursing Juan Uribe in San Francisco. “Number 18 was supposed to be my prefect game, asshole! Mine!!”
Or something along those lines…
And with that, I’m off to enjoy another beautiful day on vacation!
