Spin the whell of baloney, friends. It’s the Winter Meetings where everything goes, so long as your definition of “everything” is “back-scratching and ball-washing from devious men in positions of relative little power.” Or just take every word to describe Doctor Zhivago and apply it to baseball. The connection is strong!

Names are made, except very few people actually remember – or care – who broke the news in the first place.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun, does it? There will be fun, and a Getting Blanked livestream at 3:30pm!
