Former Indians/Red Sox/A’s pitcher Dennis Eckersley is responsible for the very name of this blog, and thus, you can expect I’ll be rather protective of the Hall of Famer’s legacy, if not his likeness. Such credentials mean little to Seattle’s Derek Erdman, however, who with the above “Denise Eckersley” reimagines the starter-turned-reliever as his era’s most important transgender superstar.

Well, other than Bob Horner, anyway.
