Whenever there’s a meeting on the mound of any kind, my mother jokes that they’re discussing where to have dinner, while I run the scene from “Bull Durham” through my head. Certainly they’re discussing a cursed glove, what to get Jimmy and Millie as a wedding gift and the fact that Nuke’s dad is in the stands, right?
So, this little pow-wow of just Clint Barmes and Bud Norris the other day, what do you think it was about? I imagine Clint saying something like, “When this all shakes out, Bud, you might be the most veteran guy left.”
What do you think?
