can you at least stick to being insufferable about the topic at hand and not hypothetical future conversations too


History suggests it is unlikely.

Agreed, I saw the Rosenthal tweet before it was posted here and I was going to go for Brachtober as a title if PCP hadn't.

Perfect opportunity to wear alternative black uniforms.

Significantly overused by Buck during his run in Baltimore (Orioles missed a chance to sell high on him two years ago, when he might've commanded a big return), but for this offseason, and the constraints, I do like the move. The fastball isn't as good as it once was, so I doubt he's a consistent late inning option, but if he's not over-used, I imagine there's a chance he could still be a steady pen arm that could potentially help out in the late innings. Sort of Michael Wuertz, for a comparison (and in a similar vein, once Wuertz lost his fastball, he went downhill).
