Does the Pope sh!t in the woods? By which I obviously mean, of course Jimmy Leyland still smokes. Let’s face it, even if he gave up smoking, the residual tar in his lungs and nicotine in his blood stream would be the equivalent of smoking a pack and a half of Marlboro Reds a day. For the next ten years. They may not have found any biological weapons in Iraq but the city of Detroit sure has one and it’s Leyland’s bodily fluids.
The more important question here, though, Nate, is why haven’t the Tigers used this to their advantage even as the season slowly slips away? For instance, if an opposing pitcher is heating up, have Leyland breathe in the guy’s face between innings. The nicotine blast alone would be enough to get the guy wired and perhaps allow the Tigers’ hitters to tee off.
But instead we have to content ourselves with blurry images of Leyland furtively catching a smoke while we take bets on how much lung capacity he has left. Considering the fact that he hasn’t really let loose on his team during this ridiculous slide, I’m going to say it’s only about 25%. Any takers? Nate?
