Quote of the Day II: Braves GM Frank Wren on Ryan Doumit

Dec 18, 2013, 4:35 PM EST

I’m not a big fan of the Ryan Doumit trade, but at least it’s good for the yuks:

 

True! He is almost two players. Almost a catcher. Almost an outfielder. Heck, he’s almost a hitter now too. And he’s being paid what almost two players of his current value should be paid.

Gonna start calling him the Swiss Army Knife. So versatile.

    After that “3 broken hips” comment yesterday, I have to say you’re on a roll, Craig!

    And like a Swiss Army knife, when you really need to saw a branch or open a bottle of wine or carve something you wish you had the right tool.

      A Leatherman?

    Good thing that beatwriter has a goatee, otherwise there’d be no way to tell were the chin ends and the neck begins. Please, insert food between the hairy regions, nom nom nom.

    Also, who really gives two sh!ts if the braves traded for Doumit?

      What about giving almost two sh!ts?

    I used to call him DOH!mit when he was in Pittsburgh. No-mit was also popular.

    Just wanted to give you Braves fans some advance tweet ideas for this season.

    Thanks gdobs227. Bit of levity always makes a long season easier to cope with, especially when you root for a team like atlanta. They rack up hits and wins in bunches then go through streaks where they get rocked almost as often. Humor always helps me deny the urge to change the channel.
