ROCKY: SO who's your second baseman?
MARLON: NO, Who's our first baseman. What's on second, and.... Sorry. We're putting Jose Lind at second.
ROCKY: Pittsburgh won't let him get away.
MARLON: They might. He won't hit much, after all. But he's probably the best defensive second baseman in the National League. Our team president, Carl Barger, came from the Pirates, you know, and he doesn't think Pittsburgh will protect Lind. And if they do, we'll take second baseman Julio Franco from the Rangers. They're down on him for missing most of this year with a knee injury, for not always running out ground balls and for little things like—oh, never mind.
ROCKY: Little things like what?
MARLON: Like literally napping through batting practice.
ROCKY: And you want this clown?
MARLON: The man can hit. He was the American League batting champ in '91. He hit .341. If he does that for us, he can bring a Craftmatic adjustable bed to the batter's box for all I care.
ROCKY: But defensively he has more holes than a White Castle hamburger.
MARLON: SO we'll move him to first.
