Olney was on Charley Steiner's show today talking about information fed by MLB, Inc. on the
pending signing of Japanese pitcher Matsuzaka. His shrill, high-pitched voice whined,
- The Red Sox SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN DAMON!...The Red Sox SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN ABREU! (almost shrieking now, probably reaching for a tissue, really sputtering).
- And they SHOULD GET Matsuzaka, WHO WOULD'VE BEEN...
- PER-FECT for the Yankees. (Sounding very triumphant, probably the tears started to abate...)
Then Olney says he knows the higher-ups in the Red Sox organization pretty well (OH MY GOD, WHAT A HUGE REVELATION---I'M SHOCKED), AND HE THEREFORE PREDICTS THE GUYS THERE WILL EASILY PUT SCOTT BORAS IN A CORNER, SAYING TO HIM:
- (Olney portraying Red Sox suits:), "HEEEERES the deal, BIG GUY..." were Olney's words. Wow, he must really know a lot, what a genius.
