Whenever Those Girls drive together to baseball games, the same few topics of conversation generally pop up...things like "how awesome we are," and "why has no one invented a teleportation device yet?!" And sometimes we play this weird game we like to call "Mango Island," which is something so ridiculous we would never even dream of trying to explain to anyone else.
We like routine.
One of the conversations that comes up most frequently is "What if we had our OWN baseball team..." In the event we ever both win the lottery multiple times and can afford a baseball team, we already have a lot of great ideas. Like having a section of the ballpark that is Wave/Beachball free. (You would also have to pass a rudimentary baseball knowledge test in order to gain admittance to that section.)
To get to the sort-of point of this rambling story, the other day I was reading about how 14 teams had requested pitcher Noah Lowry's health records. This news made me happy. I'm quite fond of Mr. Lowry and I have missed him during his time of extended brokenness. And then thought popped into my head that if I had my OWN baseball team, there would actually be 15 teams interested in Noah Lowry.
Which naturally led me to daydream about what other players might be on that imaginary team, really for no other reason than that I get bored easily and this seemed like more fun than being productive.
So, this is the 25-man roster I came up with. I heart it a LOT, and I wish it actually existed in this plane of reality. For the purposes of this whackadoodle daydream, this team is in the National League and has no DH. Sorry in advance to the pretend pitchers :)
I can't decide if I want to call the pretend team the Crocodiles or the Pronto Pups. But I do know that our pretend home uniforms would look an awful lot like the KC Royals' light blue uniforms...
....And that our pretend ballpark would have both waffle fries in mini-helmets and a giant "Mix Your Own Slushies" bar.
