And, apparently, no one at the Florida DMV speaks Spanish:

Google it if you are confused.

Several people sent me this — apparently it made the rounds among some of the more hardcore HBT commenters today — but I have no idea where it came from originally.  All I know is that it came from a Marlins fan with taste and discernment.

UPDATE: It was apparently on Deadspin yesterday.

Shohei Ohtani no longer facing Masahiro Tanaka on Sunday at Yankee Stadium

Shohei Ohtani has essentially become the Angels’ designated Sunday starting pitcher, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia announced Thursday morning that the 23-year-old two-way Japanese star will be skipped in the rotation this weekend at Yankee Stadium for “workload management” purposes.

Ohtani is fine to continue hitting, so there’s no sense of any physical ailment.

This decision will rob us — and the Japanese media — of a showdown between Ohtani and countrymate Masahiro Tanaka. And for that we are rather devastated, but you can understand the Angels’ concerns about overuse.

Ohtani has registered a 3.35 ERA, 1.066 WHIP, and 52/14 K/BB ratio through his first 40 1/3 innings (seven starts) as a major league pitcher and he’s slashing .308/.364/.582 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 26 games as a part-time DH.
