Braves Writer, and Human Thumb, Tweets Out Very Original Santa Joke
You’d think a sportswriter would be able to come up with something a little more clever than recycling a 60-year-old joke:

I might be giving this human thumb too much credit.
You’re probably thinking, “Damn Kyle. It’s not nice to call some guy a thumb.” To which I rebut, “If you don’t want to be called a thumb. It would benefit you to not look like a thumb.”
Anything goes during a playoff race.
This is the same guy who bitched about Jose Alvarado fixing the mound in the middle of the playoffs last year:
Somebody should check to see if Alvarado would like some appetizers while he waits for his latest mound manicure. As @EOF34 said, “If you want a clean mound, be a starter.”

He sounds like more of a fan and less a sportswriter.
Time to split the series today and shove it down Bowman’s wide neck.
“I like our guys to act like they’ve been there before.”
