A One-Sentence Post on...Impatience Rewarded

Funny about all of the reports that came out in the past 24 hours talking about "FINALLY!" and "AT LONG LAST!" and "THE WAIT IS OVER!" for the ascension of Brett Lawrie into the Major Leagues, when we're thinking "21 year-olds don't make it to this level in general, and Gordie Dougie's had less than a full season at Triple-A, and less than a full season in this system, so we've barely come to know this guy or what he might be able to do outside of the low gravity environs of the PCL, and there's nothing about this that makes us feel as though it was an exhaustive wait, but maybe we're not nearly impatient enough to really get what's going on...Gordie Dougie Gordie Dougie Gordie Dougie Gordie Dougie Gordie Dougie Gordie Dougie Gordie Dougie!"

sorry...but why is Lawrie being called Gordie Dougie? Howe and Gilmour?...

No way he surpasses Arencibia's debut last season, though he would certainly make up for any deficiency by throwing a laser at AROD's head from 3rd in the nearest New York series. Failing that, a standing dropkick to Jeter as he tries to stretch a double into a triple. Do either of the two, and a 2011 debut is already a plus.

Would be nicely ironic if his first hit is a carefully placed bunt.

^^ those can be topped by fistfighting Pedroia. Hope the lil' Beantowner has his fightstraps tied down.

I'm surprised there were no comments about Travis Snider paying for Lawrie's spot on the roster. Is Thames really better than Travis Snider? Or was this an "options" thing?
