SoSG Mailbag

It's once again time to grab a letter from the hordes of messages in the SoSG Mailbag. Today's letter (to be accurate, it's an email), randomly chosen from our pile of emails, comes from Mark Crumpacker of Denver, CO:

Hey Sons,

I'm a long-time Dodger fan and I've enjoyed reading your site over the years. I especially appreciated your campaign to "Free James Loney" when he was unjustly entrenched on the bench behind Nomar Garciaparra, as well as your crusade against Frank McCourt's continual management fiascoes (parking lot system, mandatory charitable contributions, Andruw Jones and Juan Pierre signings, etc.). I also have a lot of questions about our relief corps and how they're going to hold up in the middle innings before [Jonathan] Broxton can take the mound.

So my question is, where do you guys like to go for lunch?

You know, Mark (can I call you Mark?), that's a great question, that I'm sure is on the tip of many SoSG readers' tongues. But to answer it directly, what's often on the tip of our tongues is none other that Chipotle burritos, which we have found to be a great place for casual dining at reasonable prices!

The SoSG staff frequents a local Chipotle after most staff meetings, and we are especially fond of the Carnitas Burrito with all the trimmings (except Lasorda, who is lactose-intolerant so he refrains from the sour cream--and when he doesn't, hoo boy, it's a fun time in the offices that afternoon, when hijinks ensue!). There's something about the packed goodness of the Carnitas Burrito that is so warm, so fresh, so tasty, and so wonderful--it just keeps you toasty inside all day long. And that, Mark, is especially important living here in Southern California, where the winters are long and cold and the people out at the beach don't have to worry about being so fit and trim!

Thanks for asking, Mark, and thanks for reading SoSG! Hope to answer more of your hard-hitting Dodgers questions in a future Mailbag episode.

Bastards. That burrito looks nearly identical to the lot you can get at El Pelon in Boston. Or could, before it burned down for the second time in a few months in January.

Either way, I'm stuck in a Montana snow flurry. Taco John's is all there will be.

Thanks for giving us the Lowe Dan, Dan Lowe!

I wonder if that's the same Mark who went to Art School with me in Pasadena?
