And who is this lovely

little lady?

- I'm Maggie Reynolds.

- Maggie.

- That's four bucks.

- I'll get those.

- I got it.

- No, no. Save your money.

- Here we go...

- Out of a ten.

- The change is yours, my friend

- Thank you sir.

- So, Maggie are you a baseball fan?

- As a matter of fact I am.

I manage a team, the Minnesota Twins.

Maybe you've heard of them.

Minnesota Twins. Maybe I've heard

of them... you asshole.

First class all the way.

That's how we do it on the big team.

He says "big team" one more time,

I'm gonna pinch his neck

until his head pops off.

- Here's the kid I'm talking about.

- Now coming to the plate,

number 1, Billy "Downtown" Anderson.

Number one in your heart,

number one in the program.


I like this kid.

Super, just super.

I was just telling

Mr. Downtown here

that he is going to be with

the big team real soon.

No question about it.

The sooner the better

as far as I'm concerned.

What do you think, Gus?

I think he's got a real nice bat.

They say I've got a pure swing

and that I'm a natural.

As soon as you get over that lack

of confidence, the sky's the limit.

Good game. Why don't you get a shower,

don't want my star player catching a cold.

Wait a second... Gus Cantrell.

6'1, 185 lbs, throws right, bats right.

I had triples of your rookie card

when I was in grade school.

- You still got them?

- No.

I traded them all for one player

to be named at a later date.


See ya.


Well, I've got to roll.

- I've got to get back...

- Back to the big team?

- Margaret...

- Nice meeting you.

Listen, you ever get tired of the Minor

Leagues, you give me a call. Just kidding.

No, seriously...

Kidding. Kidding.

Let's go to the airport, my friend.

Hey listen, keep me

posted on that kid.
