The latest: Leyland isn't too happy with comments that Sheffield made about his playing time, saying that he was "flabbergasted" with what Sheff said.
Yes, he actually used the word "flabbergasted" in the course of normal conversation, which got me to thinking of other words he might use during the course of this soap opera with Sheffield.
You know, the type of words only an old man sneaking drags off a cigarette would use.
If you're the betting type, I'm laying "nincompoop" at 3-to-5, "ninny" at 4-to-1," "rabblerouser" at 6-to-1" and the long shot "I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids" at 20-to-1.*
If you're not the betting type, tell me: What other "old-man words" do you think Leyland is likely to use?
*Bet only pays if Leyland pulls off Dave Dombrowski rubber mask after placing Sheffield on waivers.
