Artificially sweetened cotton candy

from our general manager, Dave Littlefield, at the Baseball Digest audioblog, in which he provide "rationale" for most of the bizarre, indefensible moves he has made since the end of last season.

Littlefield is an awful general manager, but he is one of the most skilled interview subjects I have ever heard--he is an absolute master of evasion with an uncanny skill at crafting reasonable-sounding explanations for indefensible actions. It is this skill above all others that has enabled him to keep his job for as long as he has.

But let's remember...he is an awful general manager, and every year that the team continues to lose is going to make his act harder and harder to sustain. He will be gone one day.

Not soon enough. "And his little dog too," to quote a certain witch from the west.

The only consolation from tonight's ass-whupping is that Dave Littlefield and Jim Tracy probably feel worse than I do.
