Vin Scully, who in addition to being the greatest announcer of all time is also 84 years old, read one of new Dodger Shane Victorino’s tweets on the air last night and … well, it was adorable:

The New York Yankees have acquired reliever A.J. Cole from the Washington Nationals for cash considerations.
Cole was supposed to be the Nats’ fifth starter this year but that didn’t work out too well. He pitched in four games for the Nats, starting two, to the tune of a 13.06 ERA, having given up six home runs in 10.1 innings. That’s . . . something.
Don’t get too used to Cole on the New York roster, as this seems like one of those “give us an arm” for a couple of days deals, after which Cole will be DFA’d and will either accept an assignment to Scranton or be cut loose. Such is life at the fringes for a guy who is out of minor league options.
