Pitchers and Trees

I've gotten numerous calls from softball friends and acquaintances recently asking me to "find them a pitcher ".

That's like asking me to find a girl that is a Victoria Secret super model that cooks cleans, makes money and swallows - sorry dude nearly impossible.

Making their request doubling difficult is that they want a pitcher on a Sunday.
Sunday is by far softball's busiest day and pitching is at a premium.
Moreover, I'm managing a Sunday team this year and why would I give someone else a pitcher that I might need?

Anyway, the best advice I could give someone is Pitchers are like trees - grow them.

Either become one yourself or give a young pitcher a chance to develop - it's your best long term bet - Holler!!!!!!!


  1. What treet was Castillo grown on?
