If anyone thought this Indians season was depressing, well, things just got outstanding!
The Wigwamers today traded for Braves backup catcher Sal Fasano. You know, the Sal Fasano?
This 36-year-old journeyman has compiled a career .219 average through parts of 10 major league seasons. His career milestone was set in 1998, when he was second in the league in hit-by-pitches, with 16.
The main attribute he brings to this team is his outstanding facial hair. Whether it is a mustache, Fu Manchu, or goatee, Mr. Fasano consistently brings a finely manicured scruff each and every day.
When a team is struggling the way the Tribe is, the more hair on your face, the better. I will now go cry myself to sleep.
