A Phrase We Have Not Heard In A While

In the Wikipedia entry on Archibald Butt, Mr. Fu finds:

“TAFT TOSSES BALL,” announced The Washington Post. “Crowd Cheers President’s Fine Delivery of the Sphere.”

What a phrase, “Fine Delivery of the Sphere.”

“Tom Glavine executed a fine delivery of the sphere.”

“His normal fine delivery of the sphere has gone awry, and the batter takes one to the noggin.”

Somehow it will not make the morning papers.

“Sir, your sphere has been delivered. Shall I sign for it?”

What is Mr. Fu thinking? Why is Mr. Fu thinking?
