Factoids of interest here are that I was lucky enough to attend both the first Dodger game in Los Angeles and the game honoring Roy Campenella, both at the Coliseum. Thank you, Daddy!
This is such great news! I love Orel's baseball commentary on the a ESPN Sunday game. It's such a pleasure, obviously, to listen to his insights on pitchers and pitching. He really enhances the watching experience. The question is, won't he miss his poker games? It's a long season!

The articles I read last night about the Cano/Mariners negotiations reported that when the demand for 240/10 was made, it sent the Mariner owner into a rage and out the room. I guess he calmed down

I will be very, very unhappy if Matt Kemp is traded. Vexed, even!

We have two outfielders who get hurt. Having four outfielders is almost a necessity for us. If Kemp is traded, we'll need another, esp one who can hit.
He did? Well, YAY!

It could be desirable if Kemp is gone and we're left with three outfielders, two of whom are injury prone ant the third, while exciting, needs a lot of work to play nice in the big leagues. It's not such an outrageous proposition.
"...and some mystery team wants to give 3/$48m to Carlos Beltran‘s AARP years..."
If Kemp isn't going to be ready, and trade speculation about him is true, this mystery team could be us. Colletti does like those guys in their AARP years. You may now begin throwing rotten veggies at me.
I love that airport because Bow Wow Bungalow is nearby and I can drop my dogs off on my way out of town. Woof!

Will Ferrell is not funny. Other than that, he's okay, I guess.

Nice work on Clubhouse Confidential, Mike. The only thing holding you back from having your own show is you lack the "jerk factor" so common among hosts. Work on that, will ya?
Anything with Adam Sandler or Will Farrell.
We grammar pedants must remain vigilant. :)
Clubhouse Confidential is on again in 7 minutes, 4:30 PST! That's worth changing the batteries in my hearing aids. ;)
Am I the only person who gets depressed every time there is talk of signing players who are 33 years old?

@LA_Woman @Technogit @DBrim @Lobo Right, guys with futures don't become minor league free agents, ergo the "garage sale" comment. When do we get to rebuild with new, young guys rather than restock with old guys who aren't ever going to make the 40 man roster?

@DBrim @Technogit Why can't they be guys with futures instead of guys with pasts?
I don't get any of these acquisitions. Doesn't Colletti have anything better to do but shop garage sales?
