Needing a spark during the ALCS, John Farrell-- manager for the Beaneaters of Boston -- said that it was time to throw young-buck rookie third basebagger Xander Bogaerts into the fire. While one should ignore the spark/fire reference as both hackneyed and legitimately dumbass-ian, it is quite necessary for one to note that "fire" was used as a metaphor.
So it is rather unfortunate that a third rate cardiac surgeon with a stupid hat took literally Farrell's quote and did this:
|Piddles and damnations to Murgatroyd! I left the Pepcid in my other sacrificial turban!|
