MLB TeeVee: Diff’rent Smoaks

This is the sixth in a series of short excerpts from MLB Network’s entirely imaginary new fall sitcoms. More details here.

Today’s show: DIFF’RENT SMOAKS

INT. MANHATTAN PENTHOUSE APARTMENT -- DAY

JUSTIN SMOAK and GARY COLEMAN play with toy trains.

JUSTIN

Hey, Gary. It crosses my mind that we may not actually be biologically related.

GARY

What’choo talkin’ about, Justin?

JUSTIN

I mean our age difference is like 18 years. So our mother would have had to have been pretty young when she had you, and pretty old when she had me.

GARY

Plus you’re a little taller than I am.

JUSTIN

Yes, that too.

GARY

Hey, Justin. Can I borrow some money?

JUSTIN

I’m not even arbitration-eligible yet, Gary. Sorry. Maybe in a few years.
