    Or like a large, furless Warner Bros. Tazmanian Baseball Devil- capable of amazing feats, wanton destruction, and absurd hilarity.

    All at once sometimes.

    He couldn't hit cuts... I used to get so frustrated watching Delmon play. I think I would have gotten frustrated if I was his Mom

    Even if he had thrown that ball 700 mph, he still wasn't getting that guy at home.
