Brocail "would love to play"

Buster Olney's blog post this morning has a lot of information, but most relevant to us is that of his bit on Doug Brocail.

Long-time reliever Doug Brocail has had quite a life journey, through 15 seasons in the majors and a life-threatening heart procedure and a couple of Tommy John surgeries -- and now his journey has him out on hunting trips with his wife and five daughters; all of his kids are avid hunters. Madison, his 15-year-old daughter, recently took down a 13-pointer in Texas.

It's unclear, however, whether Brocail will pitch again, whether teams will take another shot with him. "Would I love to play? Absolutely," said Brocail, who figures to stay in baseball in one way or another.


13-pointer? What is this, NBA Jam?

I'm guessing he means a 13-point buck, considering he was talking about Brocail going on hunting trips.

"13 points" being the number of points on the buck's antlers.
