    It's old, but still entertaining. Strike me out! I dare you!

    The buried lead here is that somewhere, there is a grown adult whose job includes wrapping hot dogs in duct tape.

    Surprise, surprise! Down in AA Tim Tebow is hitting .261, albeit with 88 K's is 67 games. Still, not bad for someone who hadn't played since high school.

    I love this note from the weekend:
    The Mets paid Bobby Bonilla $1.19 million dollars yesterday. They will continue to do that every year until 2035. (He hasn't played since 2001.)

    Talk about cornering the market in being a professional disappointment. I almost forgot that overblown retardation involving him years ago.

    Aw come on, now. He led the league in sacrifice flies, twice!

    All I remember was that one year he played for the Braves, I think the Mets were paying him more than the Braves did that year. I shouldn't laugh, though. The Braves are still paying Bruce Sutter for a few more years.

    Ohtani was activated from the DL today, just in time to face the Mariners tonight as the DH. I am not pleased with this development.

    Bautista returned to Toronto and they played his old walk-up music for his first at bat, something they don’t do for visiting players. Cool moment, her sure loved it.

    Looks like it's going to be LA.

    "The Baltimore Orioles, barring a last minute snag, will trade All-Star shortstop Manny Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday, according to a baseball official with direct knowledge of the deal.

    The official spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the trade has not been finalized."

    5 prospects for 2 1/2 months (+ the post season). That's one hell of an expensive rental.

    The sad thing is that word is he's told friends he wants to be a Yankee. They can ship Didi off somewhere, plug Machado in at SS and get younger and much more dangerous.

    With the trade of Chris Archer, Tampa Bay now has zero starting pitchers on the roster. Literally zero.

    Interesting strategy.

    Something different...Rougned Odor's line tonight. 1 for 1 with 5 walks.

    My ESPN twitter feed keeps showing up with Barry Bonds stuff, and I've seen a couple other things here and there. Is the great "forgive Barry for cheating" train starting? I am not on board, mostly because he was/is such a dick. I guess we'll know if 60 minutes does an interview in the next 18 months.
