One shining moment

If you're on the fence about your budding baseball addiction, there's a pretty good barometer today - are you watching the futures game? If you are, you're likely bitten pretty badly by the bug. If you know more than 25 percent of the players, well, then there's no doubt.

Despite the crushing blow to one's personal relationships and professional obligations, today our misguided souls were rewarded.

It was in the bottom of the second inning, when for the first time in my life - Hu was on first.

Do I get a cookie for being one of the first 25 people to make that joke before Chris Berman does? I bet he's just sitting and waiting for the kid to make the majors, checking his stats every night before he turns off the lights at his cube and heads home.

For the record, Chin Lung Hu is a Dodger farmhand who is a shortstop in AA ball right now.
