Acting in loco Arnesonis here...

The Oakland Athletics reactivated outfielder Milton Bradley from the disabled and sent Dan Johnson to Sacramento. Nick Swisher will take over first base for Oakland.

Uncle. I mean it... uncle.

I tried Google and it said, "did you mean in loco Arnesons? and when I clicked that, it didn't help.

For the love of all that is holy, Bob. I just got back from Tennessee in July, I am going to Disneyland with four kids and you know what I don't need? I don't need to obsess on what in loco Arnesonis means but I will. (yeah, I love to bold in my posts, so sue me)

So... I'm going to go walk the dog for an hour and when I return... I expect to an answer.

Yours in loco, mi compadre... SB

I'm not sure what case "Arensonis" is supposed to be. Is it ablative? Or it accusative?

I only took one year of Latin.

can't help. total years of latin: zero.

I think it's the locative case. That appears to be what nouns ending in "-is" stand for. It's a rarely used case to indicate location.

Oops, turns out that it was the genetive case.

That would make more sense.

The mnemonic I used to remember Russian verb cases was Never Go Downtown Alone In Leningrad.

To my shock, I learn that they've changed the Locative case name to Prepositional!

Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative, Instrumental and Prepositional.

No, I'm not going to write them in Cyrillic.

10 Conveniently, they also changed the name of Leningrad to (St.) Petersburg.

11Was it Arte Johnson who used to say "Hmm. Ve-r-r-y interesting" on "Laugh-In?"
