DeWitt: We'll Miss You Most of All...

Thankfully, my high school buddy also named DeWitt is coming to California soon. Or else I'd have nobody to call Joyce.

Vaya Con Dios, DeWitt! Good luck in Chicago. (Where apparently, Greg Maddux is your biggest fan.)

As much as I hated to see the kid go, at least it will be easier in the Baker household when using the name "Joyce." MDIL=Joyce so it was always confusing whenever I would yell "Goddammit Joyce!!" Now I will still yell that, but it will be for different reasons, and less confusing.

If we start a GT, will today's game get here any more quickly?

Love this re: Adam Dunn:

"Dunn receives standing ovation from Nats fans

A few hours after learning that he was not dealt before the non-waiver trade deadline, Nationals first baseman Adam Dunn received a standing ovation from the sellout crowd of 38,049 during the team's 7-5 victory over the Phillies at Nationals Park on Saturday.

The ovation occurred in the first inning when Dunn entered the batter's box. It was the fans' way of saying they were happy that Dunn is still a member of the Nationals. Dunn ranked the moment as one of the best in his career.

"That really means a lot, especially coming from where I came from," Dunn said. "These fans really care if I stay or go. It means a lot. You tend to notice these things lot more when you come to place that really appreciates what you do and things like that.

"I can't really put into words. It's just one of those special things. When I retire, it's one of the things that will be on the top of the list to remember."

DeWitt doubles on a 1-0 pitch from Jorge De La Rosa in his first AB as a Cub, driving in Jeff Baker from third.

The trade is already a failure.

"It’s like if you paid for a couple days of a rental car, then the rental car guy gets to kick you in the dick."
