The Dugout: Goofus and Gallant

By / 03.30.11

David Eckstein is living the dream. Despite showing no obvious talent for baseball and being the size of a petite woman, Eck spent ten years in the Major Leagues, won two World Series championships, and somehow (according to Wikipedia) got a grown woman to sleep with David Eckstein. After a career of doing the impossible, he’s taking on a new goal: convincing people that baseball players can be decent human beings.

The Eckstein family is really into donating kidneys, and David is next on the list. He hasn’t officially retired, either, which means that he could show up on the Astros or the Marlins or whoever this season with only one operable kidney, hitting .270 and stealing 11-ish bases like nobody else possibly could.

Today’s Dugout is in tribute to a loving man who never stopped being kind of okay and trying really hard.

Welcome to the Goofus and Gallant Chatroom!

Gallant improves his value over replacement player with "intangibles."

EcksFactor: /grounds out to catcher
EcksFactor: Hey, suh-suh-suh sorry about that fellas, I couldn’t hit the ball farther than my bat, we didn’t score the runs and lost the game
VenableTraditions: It’s okay man, it’s September, none of us are scoring runs.
EcksFactor: But I was tryin’ so hard!
GarlandVocalBand: And we saw that. The fact that you hustled all the way to first even though the fat third string catcher thew you out from his knees before you left the batters box is the only thing that matters.
EcksFactor: Gee, you guys are the best!
VenableTraditions: Thanks. And hey, retire immediately
