A Wall Street Journal feel-good on Casey Blake's clubhouse unification powers.
(un)intentionally hilarious lines:
[On Blake's nicknames]
"Mr. Blake's Cleveland teammates dubbed him 'the Chin' for his chiseled, Jay Leno-like jawline. His fellow Dodgers call him 'the Gamer,' a moniker he brought on himself in an interview earlier this year while discussing playing with a bad hamstring."
[Blake on using Spanish to mock English speaking teammates]
"'I'll joke around and say 'Hey, speak English,' says Mr. Blake, adding that American players should learn to speak more Spanish, too."
[Wichita State coach Gene Stephenson on Blake]
'He was not particularly fast and not particularly strong, but really, really played the game unselfishly,' says Mr. Stephenson. 'Frankly, that's become rarer and rarer.'"
[Twins "spokesperson" Mike Herman on letting Blake go]
"'When he took off the next year we were all kind of like, 'Oops!'"
In all seriousness, what a guy.
