“What else am I going to do on a Monday night? My wife’s not here.”

Buck Showalter, explaining why he spent his Monday night off watching draft pick Manny Machado in nearby Aberdeen, Maryland on Monday night.

I can appreciate the relative lack of imagination. Back before we had kids, if my wife was going out of town on business or something I got equally crazy: I’d check and see if the Columbus Clippers were in town.

You can’t tame wild baseball dudes. You can only hope they don’t run too wild.
