But Will He Be Allowed To Bat With The Sledge-O-Matic?

gallagherMan, what will that Billy Beane think of next? The always-thinking-outside-the-batter’s-box Beane has really pulled one out of his ass by calling-up Gallagher from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

First of all, I didn’t even know the A’s had Gallagher in their farm system. Secondly, the legendary comedian is 62-years old, for crying out loud. What is Beane thinking?

Whatever it is, you have to hand it to the guy. He makes decisions and he stands by them – although he may regret this one down the road. Just the cost of watermelons alone is going to put the hurt on the team’s books.

From the looks of it, Gallagher does have one helluva swing, though – so he’s got that going for him, which is good.
