Grant Brisbee, Lord of Online Baseball Content, has decided to give up some of his genetic material and welcome a new Brisbee to the land. And for that, we cheer!
However, it also meant that he needed to give his attention to something other than his website for the week, leading him to call on some guest writers to fill the void. Because he apparently wants to destroy any and all credibility he’s built up over the years, I was also asked to take part. Naturally, I wrote about Steve Stone’s penchant for psychics and pancakes.
“Ruth Revzen, her work with the Cubs complete, soon came to Stone’s aid, the evidence of her abilities stemming from telling Stone when to go to the dentist (before he even knew there was something wrong!), getting his car repaired (before he even knew his car had a scratch!), and finding him in a restaurant (when she didn’t even know he would be there!) If that’s not proof of true psychic skill, of someone peeling back the veil between the two worlds, nothing is. After further work with Stone, setting him up with his own scent and possibly going full-Carrie on a stadium transformer when Stone’s arm was tight before a scheduled start, he bought completely in, adding a faith healer and a hypnotist to the package. It’s like with cable, internet, and TV — you get a deal if sign up for all three.
But for the handful of things that the white witch couldn’t do, Stone turned to the lumberjack’s greatest source of nutrition: pancakes.”
