Lefty-relief specialist Will Ohman is already giving Manny Ramirez a run for his money in the best one-liner category.
After he gave up a home run to Chad Tracy in his Dodgers debut earlier this week, Ohman joked, “Obviously, signing so late, I wanted to bring as much attention to myself as possible.”
Thursday night he struck out the only batter he faced against the Angels. I came up to him and asked if he had another funny one-liner to sum up his performance.
“That was just rapid improvement on my part,” he joked. “I got all those firsts out of the way and went back to being me, which is just unbelievably dominant.”
Ohman’s supposed to start the year in Triple-A but is expected to be called up as soon as he gets his rhythm down. Normally we don’t root for those sort of things, but when a guy goes 2-for-2 in funny quote opportunities, it’s hard not to.
