Oh definitely. Just mocking one of the most outrageous and meaningless cliche’s. Right along with “he plays the game the right way”.

At the rate my Indians are losing, I think half of the team should be designated for assignment. Its getting ridiculous. As for Accardo, he was only used for mop up duty so there really isn’t much to say about him.

I think that SF Giants GM Brian Sabean will go after Reliever Jeremy Accardo due to The fact his bull-pen needs another arm. I personally think that Former San Diego Padres and Miami Marlins reliever Heath Bell would be a great fit in The City by The Bay.
