Strange but true fact of the day. SoSG's Delino DeShields and the (slightly more) real Delino DeShields are both from Delaware! (As is Judge Reinhold) Both went to college in Philadelphia! And both brought more frustration than glory to Dodgers nation!

I'm amazed it took me so long to discover this fact, especially since most people from Delaware have been in my house... all at once. In fact, Delino is the 37th native Delawarean to play in the majors. Other notable Blue Hen/tax free shopping MLB stars include Ken Szotkiewicz (one season, .107 BA), some guy named Happy Townsend, and legit current player Ian Snell. You can read about it here at a site called, but I'm guessing you won't.

Delino, I think your caps lock key may be stuck.

Seriously, thanks for posting while I've been caught up on other things...

Great picture - was the rest of the headline supposed to read "...I got traded, for Pedro???"
