The Russ Ortiz Era Has Ended

Attention, Mitch Poole: You'll need 25 of these.


Ronald Belisario pays his proper respects.

First he loses out to Ramon Ortiz in the solution to our PCS Puzzle #3; now, he's looking for another team to sucker. Godspeed, Russ Ortiz.

Can we just get Tommy Lee Jones to come flash one of those pens at all of us and erase the Russ Ortiz "era" from our collective memory?

Orel said...

Wasn't that Belisario's job?

I heard they donated his jersey to a preschool who recently had their parachute stolen

Josh S. said...

I thought his ERA was infinite.

Mr. Customer said...

No blinky thing, especially for Ned. We must never allow ourselves to forget what happened here.

Orel said...

The old parachutes-being-stolen-from-preschools scourge. Will it never go away?

Dusty Baker said...

That's a good point, Mr. C. We should build a monument so that we - and future generations - never forget what happened here, and to pay tribute to the sacrifices all of us paid to rid the world of the Voldamortiz tyranny. It would be like the Colleville-sur-Mer site, except that instead of crosses, little bats will be stuck in the ground.

@Dusty: Heh. I thought you called him a tranny.

I haven't had my coffee yet.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

It wouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility for me to have called him a tranny, so you weren't totally off base.

"The Russ Ortiz Era Has Ended"

More like somebody put a bullet through the head of the pitching dead.

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

So what your saying is MSB = MSB = MSB?

@Orel: how was Coachella?
