One of my favorite colloquialisms from Jim Bouton’s epic Ball Four was the compliment “he wouldn’t say shit if he had a mouthful”.
Brandon Kublanow is that kind of guy, bless his heart. If the ship sinks, it won’t be because of his lips.

I’m just finishing up Ball Four. Really good. “You see, you spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time.”
Great book. Bouton finished his career in Atlanta, several years after the book came out.
I saw his first home start. He may have thrown the slowest pitch I ever saw in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.
That article needs an editor.
Pretty sharp with words. Big, smart, experienced offensive linemen can and will make even a mediocre backfield look good. Remember Boise State?
