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.

The Yankees announced on Wednesday that the club traded outfielder Jabari Blash to the Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Blash, 28, was acquired by the Yankees from the Padres back in December in the Chase Headley trade. In trading Blash to the Angels, the Yankees were able to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brandon Drury, the infielder they acquired as part of a three-team trade with the Diamondbacks and Rays on Tuesday.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Blash has hit an underwhelming .200/.323/.336 in 279 plate appearances. He will try to play his way into a bench role for the Angels this spring.
