The oldest living Red Sock and the 7th oldest living MLB player is no longer qualified for either title because Lou Lucier, died at the spry age of 96.

He was the star pitcher for Grafton High School, known for his dipsy-doodle curve ball. I mention this so that I can say “dipsy-doodle.”  And now you want to say it.

Lucier got to play in the majors because all the real talent was off fighting in WWII (the big one).  With a 3.81 ERA, he was kinda shitty. But he was an excellent fielder.  With a fielding percentage of .978, you could say that he laid traps for the

This ability to field yet not-so-much pitch may puzzle you, but it was the nature of his game.

But he was more than just a crappy ball-player.  He was a man of wealth and taste.  He had been around for a long, long year and stole more than 2nd base.

He was so old that when Jesus Christ had his moment of doubt and pain, he made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate.  He is credited with killing the czar and his ministers in St. Petersburg.  He rode a tank and held a General’s rank, when the blitzkrieg raged.

As he got older, his mind started to slip.  He kept shouting out “Who killed the Kennedys?” when after all, it was… ummmm…. it was….. Let me go watch “JFK” again….

So, if you meet his grieving family, have some courtesy.  Have some sympathy and some taste. Use all you well-learned politeness.  Or he’ll lay your soul to waste.

Um, yeah.

Woo-hoo.     Woo-hoo.     Woo-hoo.     Woo-hoo.     Woo-hoo.     Woo-hoo.     Woo-hoo……

This hot goes to Joanne!  With 130 points, she finds herself praying for 70 points in the n ext five days, because….

FIVE days until draft night!

Happy pooling,
