Willy T. or Wand-y?-Easy Beckeesh – Michael B.

This one’s easy.

You go for the funny, fiery, all out flying machine.

The battling one man OBP Machine. The man with natural highlights. The poor man’s Hanley Ramirez with the legs of Mr.Fantastic.

The Pink Panther of second base. The newest clutch-crashing, dive-swiping Killer B.

The Gold Glove with a purple heart. The Houston Hill Topper. Center Shield.

You See Beck, as lovely and wily as old Willy T. is, and as much as it hurt when he left town for Coors, he never busted out like the new man of the hour.

Why worry about the one that got away, when an even bigger, flashier fish patrols the waters behind  your other man, the new three pitch Wandy.

Becky, it’s time to have closure. It’s time to start dating other hustle.

Baby, you were Bourn to run.

  1. Of all of these excellent metaphors, my fave is “gold glove with a purple heart.”

    Actually, I’m liking the color imagery throughout. “Pink Panther of second base” stands out for me, too.

    Thanks for the perspective, Berkmaniac.
