for the link.So I got to thinking how might that discussion have went?Ricco: Hey Omar, pass the cream cheese. We gotta do something about this, you always hogging the cream cheese.Omar: Can't help it, juknowwhatimsayin?Ricco: Guy at the counter gave me a tip off. Said Tracy was interested in coming here.Omar: Who's she?Ricco: Not she the guy from the Dbacks.Omar: I don't wanna talk about it. Jerry is my manager and I am sticking with him.Ricco: What the hell are you talking about? He plays 1B.Omar: I know Helton is injured a lot but now they got player managers? Hey what position did Manuel play?Ricco: That's Jim Tracy and he manages the Rockies. I am talking about Chad Tracy.Omar: So he manages the Dbacks? We gotta good relationship with those guys. Keep in touch.Ricco: Dammit Omar, I said he plays 1B.Omar: For who? Who plays 1B?Ricco: Chad Tracy, he's a FA and is interested in coming here.Omar: Dang, Ricco you sure do take a long time to make a point. Is he any good?Ricco: He has been injured for a while but he had a decent run till 2007. Plays 3B and a little OF too.Omar: We already gotta 3B so lets keep in touch.Ricco: 1B Omar, 1B.Omar: Oh yeah? What side does he bat from?Ricco: Hmmm, I think he's left handed. Let me check my favorite source. Uh... he may be RH. But now I am confused he does not want to pitch in NY.Omar: Forget about him then. We need pitching.Just trying to have a little fun this morning. All in jest. Back to more serious post later today.
