DateQuestionAnswer
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)You really think Hobbs threw the big game? I always thought that he really tried in that last at bat and messed up. But since you can't see intent, it looked like he threw it to everyone else, and that was the tragedy in the story. Any way you look at it, though, it's better than the movie.
(Ted from Gainesville)
It has been 20 years or so since I read the book, but IIRC your interpretation is the correct one. He put himself into the position to throw it, changed his mind, and whiffed anyway. I'm sure someone else will chime in with the right version if we've missed it. So maybe I change my Chick Gandil comp to Buck Weaver. That's a more nuanced shirt. (Steven Goldman)
