    Predates even Gardy. Does the name Puckett ring a bell?

    There is a time to play deep in the OF, and a time to play "in",
    a time to "play-to-pull", and a time to "play-to-spray"
    a time to take away the gaps, and a time to hide the lines.
    a time to take away singles, and a time to take away doubles.

    Chances are it's going to be a long season.
    Then I guess it's a good thing I'm moving to Idaho in February.

    Interesting how appropriate that reference is. Ecclesiastes basically teaches us the futility of believing we can be in charge of our own lives. Kinda like being a Twins fan.

    Put it all in a nutshell quite nicely. Funny stuff about the OF.
