Closers are supposed to be weird.

Bill "Spaceman" Lee pitched for 14 years in the majors and said many discerning things about baseball.  IMO the best was:

[Note: he regularly called, in interviews, his manager Don Zimmerman, "the designated gerbil."]

This interview on Baseball Almanac gives a good idea of his personality.
