This movie is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend. I want to go to there. Click on the handsome pic of R.A. Dickey and it’ll take you to the trailer.

Gary Sheffield on the knuckler: “it’s just … spooky.”

So, so good.

Dodgers sign OF Jason Heyward to minor league deal

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers signed outfielder Jason Heyward to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training.

The 33-year-old was released by the Chicago Cubs earlier this offseason.

Heyward, who was injured at times last season, put up the worst offensive numbers of his career, batting .204 and with 10 RBIs and one home run in 137 plate appearances. However, he’s a valuable defender in the outfield.

The deal reunites Heyward with first baseman Freddie Freeman. They came up through the Atlanta Braves system and have remained friends ever since.

Heyward was a leader in the Cubs’ clubhouse, helping them win the 2016 World Series.
