A Leaked Passage From Miguel Batista's Next Work, Changeup, He Wrote

The manager, Tommie Ra Lussa, had just taken the ball from his young starter. "Good job, rook, but we need to bring in the vet," the skipper said with a pat on the butt. Michael Bitasta, 41 years old but with the looks of a young Antonio Bandera, strode in confidently from the bullpen. On pace to clinch his Major League Baseball record 900th save in a few weeks, Michael had matters not of the game on his mind. Behind home plate he saw a man he had not seen in nearly a decade, when this man of mystery waited outside the office door of M. Bitasta, P.I. Agency and offered to pay Bitasta $500 to murder his wife. Bitasta had turned the man in to the local authorities, but he appeared to have been released and was back to settle the score... With a vengeance!

"Give 'em hell, Bitasta, just five outs to go," Ra Lussa said, handing the strikingly handsome closer the ball. Bitasta said to himself in his amazingly sexy voice, "Oh, no worries skip. This save... is personal."
