The oxymorons of spring training

Paul Sullivan reports that the cactus league is displaying a grapefruit with an autograph of a player whose autograph no one really wants anymore.

Meanwhile Amalie Benjamin tweets that “starters are throwing bullpens.”

    I don’t know what you mean. I would personally pay up to $20 for Sammy Sosa’s autograph on a freeze dried grapefruit.

    On another front, what are the chances we could get a decent recipe for Oxymoron Tale Stew from Old Gator?
