la, la, la, la, I CAN'T HEAR YOU, la, la, la, la, la, la ,la


How was your weekend?..................

Anything going on?...........................................

I hear the Lakers won the All-Star game..........................

Okay, Fine. FINE! I'll comment on this weekend's "shortstop situation." I don't want to. After all, enough has been said already. However, I'm learning there's a certain duty in writing about baseball, and this weekend it calls to all of us. I'll answer it by quoting the LA Times coverage of February 15.

Not long after Gene Autry founded the Angels and invited his show business friends to come watch his team play, pitcher Bo Belinsky happily dated a parade of starlets. Four decades later, with a tip of the cap to the late "Singing Cowboy," shortstop David Eckstein is dating an actress.

She's Ashley Drane, who appears as Muffy in the Disney Channel show "She's So Raven"

Stories just don't get bigger than this.

I mean, have you seen Eckstein?

It's as if Howdy Doody finally got his wish to be a real little boy.

Then there's Ms. Drane in what, I swear, is the most mature looking picture I could find.

She's attractive in a "do your parents know where you are" sort of way, which makes them a perfect match. I've never seen a ballplayer who looked more like he belonged in the Little League World Series than Eckstein, so there's poetic justice in his relationship with an actress who recently played Jan Brady.

All kidding aside, I'm sure they're a lovely couple, and I wish them all the best, even if I think it's ridiculous that a major metropolitan newspaper would lead their local team's coverage with something that belongs on E!. I mean, come on, wasn't there some sort of trade to react to?

Which brings me to it. Yes, I'm fully aware of this weekend's big news, but beyond the grand scheme of my baseball obsession, I don't worry a lick about doings in the American League. Not until the Cubs have to face their designated representative in a best of seven series to decide the champion of the world. And when that happens, bring on A-Rod. I'd love to see the Cubs make him cry.
