Question of the Day
SEEN AND HEARD AT TURNER FIELD
ATLANTA It didn't take long for Robert Fick to return to his old, self-deprecating ways.
The veteran bench player, back from bereavement leave following his mother's death, spent a couple of innings in the TV and radio booths during last night's game and was laughing it up with the Nationals announcers. Fick asked TV analyst (and Hall of Fame right-hander) Don Sutton to explain his strategy when he pitched to Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb back in the day.
On the radio, he chided Charlie Slowes for not letting him get a word in. Said partner Dave Jageler: "Welcome to my world."
