sticking close to home base

recently i received this comment:

Dear Bullpen Baker, 

Is there any truth to the rumor that the signing of Mr. Crisp was heavily encouraged by the bullpen to see if they could get cocoa crispies every game?

well, anon, i doubt it. the end of last season petered out for me; the bullpen just wasn’t doing it for me, baking wise, and if i don’t feel supported, well, why keep doing it? i think the acquisition of coco was made for other, far more elusive reasons.

the baker’s future here is bleak; i’m planning to watch some games, but so far, i haven’t  bought any tickets yet (and i refuse to go to snuggie night, partly of principle that snuggies, slankets, sluggies, etc. are the worst of the worst of late night evening wear). in fact, the guys are just 1/2 mile south of me (i can see the stadium from my office window), probably starting to warm up in the constant drizzle that is our early april weather. my writing may be slim to none, and about it and the a’s upcoming season, well, we’ll just have to wait and see.

That’s sad to hear about our bullpen from last season. I originally saw your blog on the A’s website a while back, and thought it was very nice of you to bake goodies for our guys each game. Hopefully this season will turn around.
