    This quiz was freaking hilarious.
    I suspect the reason Antonetti blew millions on Lowe is because Dennis Martinez couldnt be reached by cell phone

  2. When he announced the trade, Antonetti used the word ‘durability’ or ‘durable’ several times. This means that Lowe will be injured before May 1 and will spend the rest of the season on and off the DL.

      More Antonetti quotes: “Jog yer memory. We’re the same braintrust who brought you Nobaldo. Who were you expecting? You got Lowe. Be happy. We almost got you Lowe’s teammate on the 91 Expos, Jeff Fassero.”
