Baseball March 13th, 2009
I am a big fan of the site Walk Off Walk. The writers at that site are big fans of Rinku and Dinesh and their blog. The blog is pretty awesome and hilarious mostly due to the fact that it is poorly translated.
Yesterday locker room man coming to us from company Topps. He saying we sign contract. We telling him we not reading this english. we say he have talking JB sir. He saying he talking JB sir and JB sir say OK signing.
As I read this I am conflicted with dueling emotions. On the one hand I am elated on how awesome these words can be. On the other I am sad because these gentlemen are Pirates and the Brewers don't have any young Indian pitchers coming down the pipeline. Luckily for me, I have the inernet and through the magic of babel fish I can make any Brewer I want become a broken English speaking immigrant. (Is this wrong? Maybe. As you can probably tell I am ready for the season to start when playing with babel fish and posting pictures of guys in lucha masks is all I can come up with.)

"I'm my worse critic, I'm very happy and so I have done, only I must keep working. There's portions of things that I need to obtain better in, defensive, everything."
"While it can take a wood and make pivot it. I'm hardly happy. The brewers took the care from me. One hardly feels well. I can' t even explains it." (Somehow this one ended up being the complete opposite.)
