"longtime mediocre major-league pitcher" is an oxymoron (unlike "longtime mediocre Ivy-league professor"--please note that I am NOT suggesting that Prof. Horn is anything but brilliant)

I don't know if he invented the line, but longtime mediocre
major-league pitcher Kent Mercker has been widely quoted on the web
and now TV for his elegant response last week as to where he thought
his career would be heading now:  "I'm starting my new
profession--turning vodka into urine."
