The Sunday Funnies

Dan Quisenberry, the ace reliever of the Kansas City Royals, in the mid 80s signed a complicated "lifetime" contract tied to the real estate developments of a Royals co-owner. But soon after he signed the lucrative deal, his manager lost confidence in him, and he fell into disfavor and disuse.

One day Donald Fehr, then the head of the Players Association, was visiting the Royals clubhouse, and Quis casually asked him if he had any recourse if the Royals continued to refuse to pitch him.

"Well," Fehr said, "you could always buy them."
