  • Kent Mercker: Nominee for quote of the year

    On his plan for a future career...

    Kent Mercker, who hasn't pitched since early June because of a bad back, was handed an envelope in the clubhouse, and he quickly ripped it open, scanned the thick multi-paged letter and tossed it into the trash.

    "Talk about a waste of eight pages of paper," he said. "It was addressed to: 'All potential free agents.' "

    Mercker will be a free agent, but as he said, "What kind of market is out there for me?" Then he paused and said, "Well, hey. I'm left-handed, I'm 40 and I'm well-rested."

    Mercker has tried to play long toss and throw off the mound, "But my back is not working."

    Most likely he is headed for retirement and said, "I'm starting my new profession — turning vodka into urine."

    "Can't buy what I want because it's free...
    Can't buy what I want because it's free..."

        Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!
