Three weeks ago, Dodgers superfan Troy from West Virginia made his first ever pilgrimage to Glendale, Arizona, the new Dodgers spring training locale, to celebrate the upcoming division title and to petition G.M. Ned Colletti to resign Joe Beimel. He brought his crazy passion for Beimel with him, along with a wacky sign, because if I've learned anything from the movies, it's that people with signs get things done:
Unfortunately, it was not written in the stars for the southpaw Beimel to return to Los Angeles. The Nats mysteriously signed him despite having a laundry list of needs a mile long, with 'lefty specialist' far behind 'replacement level pitchers' and 'new general manager'. The Dodgers are now stuck working out Will Ohman to fill the LOOGY role. Hey Ned Colletti, I hear Shamwow guy has a decent left hook. Maybe he can throw a curveball.
