Caption competition: Ian Paisley

A first time for Slugger, but considering the huge anti climax of recent days, we thought readers prefer to kick off their shoes and relax instead of reading yet another speculative piece of what might have gone wrong. So give us a strapline for the Doc, clearly returned to his oratorical best!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
