“Wake up and smell the knuckle”

I’ve recently started watching “The Rockford Files” on Netflix during my treadmill time.  Love me some 1970s detective and cop drama. In the pilot, Jim shoots down an airplane with a small caliber pistol.  High speed chases are clearly filmed with cars driving at 20 miles per hour and then speeding up the film. It’s a gas, man.

Anyway, in light of my love of that — and my love of knuckleballers — I think I’d be all over this latest show:

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.
