Quote of the Day: The Dodgers are easy targets

9 Comments

I didn’t watch the ESPY Awards. I hope I don’t have to explain why. Just know that I didn’t watch them.  So I missed Mike Seth Myers’* monologue. Which again, shouldn’t be a big deal, because Mike* Myers hasn’t been funny since at least 1997* for a long time.

But when you have material as ripe as the Dodgers are right now, even Mike*Seth Myers gets to rip on you, and there’s not a hell of a lot you can do about it.  My favorite line:

“The Dodgers are so broke, three of their players tested positive for ramen noodles.”

Easy target? Of course. Easy joke? Yep. But I still lol’d.

*I’m told I had the wrong un-funny Myers. Fine, it was Seth. Just further proof that, no, I did not watch the ESPY Awards.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
