Someone with knowledge of the eating habits of a member of a major league front office has told this blogger that there is a move to have okra jettisoned from an unnamed team's post-game buffet. A team source, who has knowledge of the buffet, has indicated the team is open to eliminating okra, but has yet to actually offer to eliminate okra. Rather, they gave an unnamed member of the clubhouse staff a list of five vegetables they would be willing to eliminate from the buffet, and okra may or may not have been on the list.
Our sources, who have knowledge of the food pyramid, tell us this list may include zucchini, marinated cippolini onions, brussels sprouts, carrots (the roasted ones, not the steamed ones), and, surprisingly, garlic mashed potatoes. This list has not been confirmed, and there is still the chance that another club may change the dynamic by offering more in exchange for the apparently unwanted okra.
