Hannah Keyser on how minor leaguers get by on $1500/mo, seven months a year:
Went out with Mendoza and Dutch Boy Friday night. Good time.
No point in dwelling on the negatives, what few there wree. It was dark so I wound up wearing half my tasteless drippy pasta. The bar, which I’m done with, had the athletes walk from the Olympic ceremony on the big screen instead of baseball. There were a couple slow-pitch stories but one was actually entertaining: Dutch Boy couldn’t get it out of the infield, but a girl who broke her arm two weeks ago and hit one-armed with a sling on the broken one went 4-for-4.
I embarrassed myself somewhat by not realizing I was playing Dutch Boy this week. Whoops. I haven’t beaten anybody in a month and I’m doing well this week so I gues I should have known.
Mendoza keeps talking about begging Frodo to come back top the league and I must admit I don’t understand. It’s his league. Is it dwarf lust? Mendoza points out that Frodo’s won it twice. Frodo uses a boom-or-bust strategy and the the bust years (which occur far more frequently) Mendoza either has to harrass him to set his lineup, or sets his lineup for him. Frodo doesn’t trade, and adds nothing to the league otherwise. Oh well, it is Mendoza’s league and I keep trying and failing to set up a decent league myself, so I can’t say too much.
There was some commentary/wonder about why Shaggy has not been very active in recent weeks. DAVID looks like making the playoffs, which rather surprised the panel. Dutch Boy was commenting that the season seemed too long, but this seemed misplaced, as his season was over three months ago.

Don’t see this every day….
Pool Report where Davidson says he was “invited to come over to 69th street and suck”:
Matt Duffy’s cat, Skeeter, is deemed too fat to make the trip with him to sweltering Florida.
Poor, poor Skeeter.
As for the title reference…
