Convicted Felon

19 Jun

New York Yankees’ backup catcher, Austin Romine, gave an interview after Monday’s game against the Nats describing how young relief pitcher Jonathan Holder was pitching with conviction navigating a difficult lineup.

Asked how a young player could do that, Romine responded that Holder “was convicted.”

Reminds me of the old Yankee skipper Billy Martin’s quip about Reggie Jackson and George Steinbrenner, “one’s a born liar, and the other’s convicted.”

I am quite sure that Romine wasn’t stating that Holder was a felon.
