Zing: Welcome back to the SPOT… dot… com (.wordpress.com). We’ve got a great feature here tonight, folks! Right here in the SPOTSTUDIO we have… KRIS “Oh, what a relief he is!” MEDLEN!
Kris: Uh, thanks. What a relief?
Zing: Haha – yeah…. Good one, Chris. Yes, you are.
Kris: But wha—
Zing: So now that you’ve done your time as a spot starter, do you feel you are ready to be shortened in for that crucial long-relief role? I only ask because Fredi tells me he feels you’re ready… I know it’s a big step.
Kris: What? Whatever is, like, good for the team? (<aside> Are you high?)
Zing: (What do you think? This is the SPOT!) … Hmmm, speaking of your home state California, smoking fatties all day in the bullpen must really give you the munchies, huh?
Kris: What? Are you seriously asking me that?
Zing: Ha, I know. <wink wink> When the team is down by 9 runs in late innings, and you’ve been “waiting “<wink wink> in the bullpen for that crucial call, you must really get hungry to eat up <wink> some innings, huh? Yum yum!
Kris. Whatever. Whatever is like food for the team? I mean good. What?
Zing: This just in! The Braves are planning to slot you in as a long reliever AND fifth starter in order to save some cash next year! Wow, what a smart move there!
Kris: You’re joking, right?
Zing: Nope! Maybe I am. Who knows? I just read this stuff, Kris…
<Kris gets up to leave>
Zing: Well, I guess the bullpen phone is ringing!
Zing: SPOT OUT! What is the Spot?
