Kind of nice. I think Oliva has been a bit underrated. He had a legit HOF peak but his other seasons were a bit blah. He was also pretty old when he had his rookie season.

Olivia was quite the good luck charm for Ash last year.

Olivia, MN is a very good town, with a very good giant corn cob gazebo.

Yes, I detassled corn there when I was a kid. Awful, big, awful fields of corn.

But seriously, I didn't realize Oliva was 25.7 before he started his rookie champagne.
