With the Red Sox completing their sweep of the Rockies in remorseless fashion, we are left bereft of baseball far sooner than any of us outside the greater New England area might have hoped for. So, to pass the time until the beginning of the Hot Stove League -- or as we A's fans call it, Get a Load of Our Rule V Draft Selections and Non-Tendered Signees! -- I thought I'd share my Halloween costume with y'all.
Detroit Tigers hat... mustache... Hawaiian shirt... beloved '80s icon... Are you getting it?
That's right -- I'm going as former Tigers Pitcher Dan Petry on vacation in Oahu.
Ooooooh... I went 18-8 in 1984! Scary stuff!
My wife is dressing up as teammate Milt Wilcox, by the way.
All of you people who guessed Magnum P.I. should be ashamed of yourselves.
