In the end, our bidding was done.
He could be a nice guy, but it was time. Jack Taschner is now the nominal second lefty. He'll have to get used to this:
Bullpen catcher: Yello? Okay. Taschner get up.
Taschner: What? There's one out in the ninth inning of a 7-0 game. Are you sure I'm supposed to start warming up now?
Rest of bullpen: laughs hysterically
Matt Cain comes up for Brian Cooper and, heck, let me just get all the Baseball Stars stuff out of my system in one shot.
Compared to Cain's arrival, the discovery of penicillin is as historically important as the release of Aces: Iron Eagle III. So we have that going for us. Which is nice.
