The World’s Biggest Corey Patterson Fan
Clearly, that fan is Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker.
Why else would he describe the trade by the St. Louis Cardinals of promising young power-hitting, speedy outfielder Colby Rasmus like this?
There’s some level of frustration in here because the the rich teams get richer at this time of year.
I was confused by that statement about the trade because the only clear winner is Colby Rasmus. Well, and the public for being shown that the true general manager of the Cardinals is “genius” Tony LaRussa.
And then I realized why Baker thought the Cardinals were getting richer: they were getting Corey Patterson.
