The Official Twins Beat Writer of AG.com, La Velle E. Neal III, wrote an article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune over the weekend that carried the headline: “Team worries Rivas has become stale.”
As you can imagine, I got a nice chuckle out of that one. I also wondered about someone like Luis Rivas becoming “stale.” I mean, if you have a bucket of, say, feces, and you leave it out for a week, does it become something worse than a bucket of feces? Does it become “rancid feces” or something? And how big of a bucket would you need to fit Rivas into it, exactly?
