Dispatch From Orlando, #1

It’s crowded. To steal a joke a friend of mine just made, there haven’t been this many elderly white men gathered in a room since Saving Private Ryan was in theaters.

Don’t worry, future dispatches will be more interesting. We’re just getting settled in.

Good thing you cited the joke, otherwise Bill Simmons’ brilliant, thought-provoking readers might have stopped by these parts again.

Bill Simmons fans are too worried about the Patriots losing to the Jets tonight.

Fangraphs fans think the character ‘stringer bell’ from The Wire would be pissed off that someone with the same name would post something that lame.

Can you do TMZ-style video reports from now on? That’s the only way I can digest news.

the punch line should have been…

My friend’s line as we left Saving Private Ryan at The Ziegfeld in New York, with the packed audience shuffling out silently, was “wait, maybe there’s some wacky outtakes with the credits.” That got groans and laughs from the nearby, not particularly elderly, crowd.

Could you please tell Mr. Mozeliak to grab a reliever or two?

Thanks.

Dave – What do you think of the Mark Reynolds trade? It seems too good to be true for the Orioles. A good 3B for 2 ok middle relievers?

he was coming off a down year, so you have to see how he rebounds. having said that, he still has tons of power and the park will only help that. a good trade, i think!

How are the accommodations? I’m assuming they found you all comfortable basements?

Well, it’s harder than you think, what with moving their parents down there first…and have you ever tried to find a house with a basement in Florida?
