Thome took 40 dry swings today. Buck still thinks Thome could rejoin team later this monthâ†µ— Roch Kubatko (@masnRoch) September 7, 2012
Voice in my head: Yeah, I don't know what "dry" means in that sentence, either. Just play along. Nod your head. Now say something like, "That's good news for Baltimore. He should be back to the old horsehide any day now." Wait, don't say that second thing! Clear your throat first. Alright, try to sound confident. Okay. Good... good. I don't think anyone noticed. Looks like we're in the clear. Nice. Nice job.
