Purgatory Online

I was pretty sure, what with all the traveling and life-changing events I've been up to in the last few weeks, that I hallucinated the whole "Angels sign Raul Mondesi" thing. But no, apparently not; apparently he's started a rehab assignment at Salt Lake, and apparently he's done re-injured himself.

Mondesi is the Angels' version of the hunchbacked girl you take home at last call, after twelve beers and three shots of tequila, and spend the rest of your life trying to forget. Memo to Dr. Yocum: didja ever see that episode of M*A*S*H where they had to decide whether to perform an unnecessary appendectomy on a notoriously incompetent combat officer to keep him from returning to the front? Good episode, doc. I'm just sayin', is all.
