Friends, I have good news and bad news. The bad first.
The Mariners are trading Doug Fister, whose name has brought me endless joy and jokes, to the Detroit Tigers.
Awww, come on! Hasn't Detroit been fisted enough?
Now the good news: In exchange we are picking up Charlie Furbush. Did you catch that, subtle readers of this subtle blog? We traded FISTER for FURBUSH. I guess one in the fist really is worth fur in the bush.
Everyone likes a freshly shaved Furbush.
