Bad Mojo Magnets

An angry boss and lower than expected earnings has some of the Soxaholix at the office on a Saturday …

Bill:
Mike, if you crank on that report for Scrivener, we may be able to get out here by one.

 

Mike:
I'm on it like a mother-ah P.I.M.P. … Cask and Flagon?

 

Bill:
Absolutely. First round's on me. I'll buzz the rest of the crew.

 

Mike:
The ol' carrot and stick, eh, Bill?

 

Bill:
You know me, I'm the Grady Little of management and human resources. [Laughter] Speaking of carrot dicks, you read that prick Eric Neel's piece?

 

Mike:
Yeah, I've got Neel's "bad mojo target right here" Forget that obvious begging for attention, you hear Theo on WEEI?

 

Bill:
What are ya doin' listening to the radio when you've got that report to write?

 

Mike:
Dude, we've been through this before. Don't yank on my work style. I do what I gotta do. Comprende?

 

Bill:
Yeah, yeah, whatevs. Don't shit in your pants … What's the Boy Wonder saying?

 

Mike:
Trot is ahead of schedule and feeling great. The program they have him on in Miami will not only fix this recent injury, it will also help to prevent him from re-injuring his back in the future. He will begin baseball activities in 10-14 days, if not sooner … Mueller's arm is back to 100%. He's made some good throws so far today … Nomar has begun to respond to treatment. He will continue to rest.

 

Bill:
Right on!

 

Mike:
And, Pedro feels strong and is great, and Theo saw Pedro throw on the side a couple of days ago and he had the best fastball he's had all spring. Theo said he's not worried about Pedro or his health one bit.

 

Bill:
Yeah, but what about tomorrow's forecast in Baltimore, 32 degrees and snow? What the …

 

Mike:
No, worries. I was at the Sunday game following Opening Day 2001 in which it was around 40 degrees and raining. He whiffed 16 that day. He'll be fine tomorrow.
