A Valentine's Day Pwning From ESPN

ESPN.com's "Sweet Spot" column on Valentine's Day was "Ways Teams Screw Things Up." And guess what "The Common Man" said about the Dodgers:

I Got Distracted By Something Shiny! (The Dodger Method)

Sometimes you get so excited by the players you can get (Juan Uribe) and you forget about what you should get (a left fielder). When this happens, you are left with Jay Gibbons, Marcus Thames, Gabe Kapler and Tony Gwynn Jr. fighting for playing time while you end up with a couple more infielders than you need.

Seven teams got skewered in the column. I suppose we should be happy that we're among rival company with the Angels, Yankees, and Giants. But I'm not.
