Manager Joe Torre and his Los Angeles Dodgers are in China for some exhibition games with the San Diego Padres and he brought along a bunch of non-roster players because the Chinese won't know the goddamn difference. Also: Nomar would break into tiny little pieces on a 16 hour flight.

Two of the no-names, onetime top prospect Greg Miller and former Phillie who is in no way related to their first baseman Kevin Howard decided to immerse themselves in the Chinese culture immediately:

(Others) clung to what was familiar. Left-hander Greg Miller and infielder Kevin Howard, two of the many non-roster players on this trip, laughed how their first meal in China on Thursday night was at McDonald's. "I came all this way to go to McDonald's," Miller said.

Full disclosure: when I was in Lake Como, Italy, I may have stopped into the McDonald's for a Diet Coke, so I can't really jump on these guys' backs for not sampling the local cuisine. Besides, they serve Coxcomb McNuggets and the Big Mac is made of goat penis over there, so it's an adventure.

Meanwhile, Padres closer Trevor Hoffman and a gigantic cartoonish Friar terrorized the countryside from atop the Great Wall. Sez Hoff:

"Look at the view. Take a look. It's unbelievable, isn't it? I think I'd feel pretty safe on this wall in the day when Mongolia was coming after 'em."

Deep, Trevor. Very deep.

Don't spill the molten liquified eel on your lap. That shit is muy caliente!

"Look at the view. Take a look. It's unbelievable, isn't it? I think I'd feel pretty safe behind this chain link fence in the day when Germany was coming after 'em."

I think I just broke babelfish, trying to bolster my witty comment with the Chinese translation of In-N-Out Burger.

Fucking burger jokes.

For a moment, I feared that Padres closer Trevor Hoffman and a gigantic cartoonish Friar terrorized the countryside from atop the Great Wall was merely a bit of hyperbolic humor; imagine, then, my joy at clicking the hyperlink and finding it to be true. Better than Christmas, I tells ya.

Over there they call it a "royal with cheese." Only, you know, in like Chinese or something.

It's still made of goat penis tho.
