Or Happy Festivus, if you prefer.
As you may – or, far more likely, may have not – noticed, the Illness has been a little slow lately. I choose to blame that on the unholy marriage of one too many holiday parties with open bars and the utter lack of Dodger news since Kuroda-san came on board. Not to mention, most front offices completely shut down for the week between Xmas and New Year’s, so it’s not like we’re going to be seeing a huge influx of Dodger news in the next few days.
So I’m just going to go ahead and make it official – thanks to having to visit far too many relatives over the next few days, the Illness is taking a holiday break. Seeing as how infrequently we’ve been posting anyway lately, this may not actually lead to less posting than usual. But we promise to improve that or your money back! We’ll be back next week.
In the meantime, my holiday wishes for the Dodgers, now that Jones and Kuroda are in the fold:
1) Trade Juan Pierre.
That is all.
Happy holidays. Smell ya later.
