Tommy Lasorda’s World: Some spring training advice:

Diamodel: No fan of number two.

If you want to win the pennant, you win it in spring training.  You have to ask yourself what price are you willing to pay to reach your gaols, and go after them with all the drive and desire you have within yourself.  You have to outwork your opponents, and it starts right now.

I would tell my players that if you want to be a number one team you have to think you are a number one team. If you think that then you’ll practice like a number one team. If you practice like a number one team, you’ll play like a number one team. And that’s exactly where you’ll finish.

Trey Hillman just broke Kenny Howell's record. He just ate 14 meatballs @grimaldispizza breaking Kenny's record of 13.

Somewhere between grand theft and aggravated mopery.

Trey Hillman is dumber than 14 meatballs.

Somewhere between grand theft and aggravated mopery.


"Mopery," said H. Allen Smith in Low Man on a Totem Pole, is the "old English misdemeanor of exposing one's self in front of a blind man on a public highway."

How this could be aggravated I'm not sure (and don't want to think about).
