Stunned Speechless

The Dodgers today hired Grady Little as their manager.

I love the underline on the MLB.com story: "Veteran baseball man best known as former Red Sox skipper".

I guess, since the website is MLB's official mouthpiece, they couldn't say "Veteran baseball man best known as former Red Sox skipper who blew the 2003 ALCS and threw away more games than Dale Sveum."

On the front page, they even refer to it as the Dodger's "big move". Shouldn't that be "... big move to lose even more games in '06 than in '05"?

I can't get the image out of my head of DePodesta and Epstein having drinks together somewhere and just laughing their asses off. It has to be happening somewhere. It just has to be.

If Epstein and DePodesta are having drinks somewhere, I prefer to imagine Theo mocking him incessantly for signing Derek Lowe.

Speaking of...how about this conversation in Spring Training

Lowe: Hey Skip, no offense, but I can't believe someone hired you as manager.
Little: And I can't believe you got a contract for 36 mil
(pause)
Both: break out laughing
Lowe: Man, this team has no clue what's it done
(high-five)
(Dodgers fans begin trying to choke themselves to death on Dodger dogs).
