Phoneless in Mexico

No, I’m not talking about myself, though “phoneless in Mexico” is actually a fairly accurate metaphor for my situation for the past month or so. We’re all moved into our new house — only twenty minutes from Turner Field! — and the new routine is starting to fall into place, though we still don’t have a couch.

Congratulations to the person who is literally phoneless in Mexico, Frenchy, who won his first Gold Glove this week. Andruw also won one, but who gives a shit, he’s ancient history! And apparently he’s talking with the Nationals, ironically enough, but that’s another story.

So, being phoneless, does Frenchy know that he won the Gold Glove? I kind of suspect he does. I assume he calls Heap at least twice a day (from a complex Mexican pay phone of some sort), and there’s like a 75% chance that Heap would remember to mention it between telling him what he had for dinner and about a really funny thing his dog did that day.

What else has changed since I last posted? No more Rent, which saddens me. What we got for him also saddens me in the lack-of-instant-gratification sense, but who knows, maybe that fellow whose name looks like a really bad Scrabble hand will end up being a solid starting pitcher. We also have a new General Manager. Apparently there is some sort of disaster involving the Orioles in his past, but when the Orioles are involved, I suppose disaster is pretty much the status quo. Just ask Leo.

Oh, and we’re after Glavine. Here’s the love note we passed to him in the press. I don’t really have anything to add to the speculation, but check out this funny picture:

A bow tie! Really! I was hoping this was a shot from Frenchy’s wedding, but it turns out Tommy and his wife were just going to the White House. Booooooring!

    Yay, you’re back! :D

    Tommy in a monkey suit; that’s fantastic. Chris’ adam’s apple scares me, though. Eeeesh.

      I’m semi-back — I probably won’t get back to posting every day until mid February. There’s just not enough going on. I guess we’ve got the weddings, but what more can be said about the weddings?

    even if francoeur didn’t bring his phone (yea right), he’s run into people that would’ve said, “hey! congrats on the golden glove!” or “Hey! felicitaciones para ganar el guante de oro!”

    having Glavine back in the right uni will be so nice to see next spring!
    it’ll also be nice to see a LH guy in the rotation that can last longer than 4 innings (no hard feelings, chuck).

      I had high hopes for Chuckie at the start of last season . . . now I don’t know what to expect. Hopefully Glavine could give him some guidance if he returned.

    Ya know…I try to give these hos a break every once in a while, but what the f*ck is she wearin’?! Talk about a monstrosity! I can’t even see the bow tie — I’m blinded by the blue fug next to it! This woman has MAD money so there’s just no excuse for this. DAYUM!

      Maybe it was some kind of political statement. Like “eff you Mr. President,” in dress form?
