The Emperor's New Signs

I just don't believe it. I don't.

Allegedly, baseball managers and coaches use signs to get a message to players on the field. They touch their nose or their elbow, and then pat one hand and touch their chins twice. Puh-leeze. This is nonsense. They're just touching random body parts. You can't fool me -- I'm a New Yorker.

I think it's like that old story, "The Emperor's New Clothes". Everyone on the team is afraid to say, "But those signs don't mean a thing!" And until some player is brave enough to voice this opinion, the sham will continue.

Signs indeed. Bah, humbug. (And yes, I'm kidding.) Hey, my Nats won last night! Woo-hoo! Final game tonight. And the Yankees lost to Baltimore. Everything is right with the world!
