Goofus and Gallant, the GM edition

By Rick Morris

Gallant makes a move to firmly establish his franchise as the team to beat in the AL Central for the next few years, acquiring one of the top ten hitters in the game to augment a good lineup.

Goofus is content to sit on his rear and field another squad in 2008 with a rancid collection of journeymen, unproven youngsters, winos and anyone else willing to play for pennies at the power positions of third base, left field and right field.

But when Goofus has such credulous spinmeisters willing to peddle bogus propaganda on his behalf, he might be right to figure he can fool enough of the public enough of the time. This Baghdad Bob thinks the Tigers mortgaged their future, when they acquired two players with a combined age below 50!

Chuck Norris may think he's tough, but let's see him spend serious time as an Indians fan. 59 years since a World Series championship and the end of the drought is nowhere in sight ...

Oh my god, you did not just use a Goofus and Gallant reference. Highlights magazine is the best. And I believe the phrase is, um..."Oh snap."
