My archenemy has rejoined the Commissioner's Office.

Commissioner Selig said: "I am delighted that Frank has decided to rejoin us at Major League Baseball. Besides being a baseball legend, Frank has a wealth of knowledge about the game from every conceivable point of view. We are grateful to have the opportunity once again to tap into his knowledge and experience."

My coffee isn't ready yet, avoiding an unfortunate Danny Thomas-like situation.

Spit takes, coffee, and laptops seldom mix well.

2 Maybe "somebody" could get Frank into competitive Scrabble.

Need a partner?

Frank Robinson would be a serious pain in the ass of a scrabble player.

Heh .... I wouldn't want Frank crying when I drop a 500 game on him ...

Now, to keep this slightly on-topic, my baseball-crazy Scrabble friends of mine play a casual version of the game in which player's last names are allowed. As a side wager, if you play a baseball player's name, your opponent owes you a buck. If the player's name is ALSO a legal word in Scrabble, your opponent owes you $2. In either case, when you play the player's name, you must mention the player's first name.

So, if you have CALZONE on your rack, you can play (Sixto) LEZCANO.

(yes ... I am a geek of major proportions)
