He couldnt hit curveballs, and wanted to sacrifice a chicken in the clubhouse.  good move.

About the chicken thing…he didn’t know that there was a non-compete agreement with Primanti Brothers at PNC.  All he wanted to do was make the Ragin Cajun Chicken Breast with Cheese sandwich fresh.

Good choice Neil.  He just wasn’t being utilized.  I think another team may take a chance on him, but overall I don’t think he’s going to make it in the bigs.
