April 7 in Jim Bouton’s “Ball Four”

“Today, the day before opening day, Joe Schultz said, 'Well, it's back to the old salt mine, boys.'”

Seeing Joe makes you want to say what?

A) “Pound that Bud.”

B) “Smoke 'em inside.”

C) “F***s***.” 

D) “S***f***.”

E) Other.

Of course, if you are not familiar with Jim Bouton's “Ball Four”, you won't have any idea what I'm talking about. But you should be used to that by now.

Speaking of baseball cards

A former SR colleague, a guy named Ken Sands, used to have a mint collection of Seattle Pilots cards. He showed them to me once. I wonder if he still has them.

I think he had a complete set of their second season, too. Of course, that wasn't spent in Seattle.

Anyway, feel free to ask me for my Tommy Harper story one day.
