Joey Dunlop talking us through some of the TT circuit. Never fails to scare and impress me in equal measure.

I was already thrilled that the Dodgers were in the cellar - I love it when overpaying for a franchise and taking on massive roster costs are rewarded with wallowing.

Now that I look at the dollars that LA has sunk into Puig, current production notwithstanding, I'm tempted to dial up Pat Robertson's call-in show and ask the reverend if he thinks that the Dodgers' fate has been preordained.

"Tortorella slowly devolved from curiosity to side show to full-on clown. His demeanor made him an unnecessary part of the job for many writers, and his demeanor eventually made him completely unnecessary to the New York Rangers."

Depending on how you look at it, Jason Kidd's retirement means there's either 1 or 0 active players left from NBA Jam.

"Tortorella slowly devolved..."

Now rummaging through my collection of Kevlar ensembles looking for something fashionable for yerfatma in the event that his pal the Twittermeister appears.
