“Perez, 25 years old, originally drafted by the Tigers. Lives in Venezuela. Boy, can you imagine you’re a young kid, you’re playing in the United States, you’re from Venezuela, and every time you look at the news it’s a nightmare… Socialism failing to work, as it always does, this time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello! Anyway, 0-and-2.”
Vin Scully, not just the best baseball guy in the biz, but also so up to date on his New York Times reporting on world affairs.

Poor Bernie. Feel like this was kind of a slap in the face that you don’t expect from another member of the cool old guy club. You just kind of assume those tough old bastards stick together.

Bernie taking L’s left and right lately.
