The Dodgers might be the worst-fielding good team in MLB.

This is the most expensive fundamentally crappy team I've ever seen. Happy to have the gift run!

See what happens when you let Tonkin pitch to more than one batter?

Up here in the big leagues, they get three outs per inning, Hicksie.

So many pitches! I remember when games only went about 2 and a half hours.

Oh man, just put it on a tee for Butera. He still won't hit it.

Walking Drew suggests that Tonkin hit his pitch limit.

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet just because it has a name or a photo you recognize.

Hell, it's not even the lowlight of the doubleheader.

After the homer, Tonkin started dropping his shoulder and yanking everything outside. I'm just shocked they let him walk the bases loaded.

How does a team walk Buterrible twice in one game?

Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy.

Yes. Had briefly considered calling their defense 'dodgey', but didn't want some Zuckerberg savant to make the mouse come alive and strangle me.
