Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to start preparing the ticker-tape parade down Yonge Street. Scott Richmond will begin the 2009 season as one of the Toronto Blue Jays starting pitchers.
As you’ve probably noticed over the past few months, Scott Richmond unexpectedly captured my attention as one of the dark horse candidates for the starting rotation positions. To this day, I still can’t figure out exactly what it was that made him so likeable. Maybe it was his quiet demeanor, his dependability, or maybe it could have been that sad, sad face of his from the WBC.
Regardless, let’s just take a moment to honour this amazing accomplishment by our fellow countryman. Congratulations Scott Richmond, this certainly calls for an Al Gore-sized celebration.
