It was Wednesday evening, the night before Thanksgiving, and baseball was scarcely a glimmer in anyone’s eyes, save for one Gerard Peter Dipoto. While everyone else was out drinking with old friends whom they may or may not still like, or preparing food for the next day, or perhaps simply lying comatose on the couch...
