Idiosyncratic, blunt, free-spirited. Not your typical jock (which is why they hung the nickname “Spaceman” on him, and not completely affectionately). He just tried a comeback this year in Single-A ball, at the age of 63. He’s a true original.

A pretty good pitcher, though.

He could have. He should have. He probably did.

That sounds like a home run call in an alternative universe, run by grammarians who insist on using the suppositive case.
(“Suppositive”? What the hell is that called?)

To be suppositive is to expect that you are correct or else it’s the state of having inserted a suppository.
Don’t quote me on either of those, I’m not all that suppositive.

I’m going to have to sit, think and push hard on that one.
