This week’s Boston Metro column. There are old pitchers, and then there are good old pitchers. And then there are good old “stopper” pitchers.

I get a fair amount of email about my Metro columns, and I’ve decided it’s time to share their words of wisdom with the UmpBump readership. This morning, I received the following email from someone named “Pete”:

Utterly uninsightful, completely devoid of any creativity and extremely poorly written. You girls should stick to something you know better and stop trying to be sports writers. You’re terrible.

Thanks for reading, Pete! And thanks for reading, UmpBumpers.

Curt, you're HOW old?!
