You know that mini-blast I sent out this morning, begging off of writing for a day because of early morning work obligations? The one in which I acknowledged that there was news to get to on Frankie Francisco, Neftali Feliz, Thomas Diamond, Richard Bleier, and Frank Catalanotto, plus, having retired my Ian Kinsler-Brenden Morrow comp (with absolute conviction that I was, and continue to be, dead on about that), another exhibit to support my case that Chris Davis is (Good) Tony Romo - but that it would all have to wait a day?

It's going to have to wait another day.

The Mavericks were just euthanized, and you know what that means. Take a peek around that corner. That bandwagon is about to fire up and head over to our street.

It ought to, at least.

There are days when this game gives you more to say than you can possibly get to, and others when words don't have a shot.

This one? Both.

But, courtesy of the man whose words about this team are always dead on, not only in what they convey but also how they sound, click the audio player below and enjoy a minute and eight seconds of awesomeness.

"They stream out of the dugout! They mob Hamilton at the plate! And NOW THEY GO AFTER BLALOCK AT SECOND!!!!"

Sweet dreams.
