Red Dwarf

Yes, the rumors are true. Nelson de la Rosa, a 36-year-old dwarf from the Dominican Republic, has been adopted by Pedro Martinez as the Red Sox’s “good luck charm.” Says Pedro: “The guys are falling in love with him.” We don’t know exactly where to go with this—talk about a straight line—but we can report that there has been no word from the Bronx on negotiations between Steinbrenner and Verne “Mini Me” Troyer.

  • Either Pedro is totally nuts or this is the greatest gag since Andy Kaufman.

  • Jeter’s good luck charms seem to be mom and dad.

  • I thought Jeter’s good luck charms were the guys at second and third who reduce the ground he would otherwise have to cover.

  • If Big Stein (actually, to me he’s HUGE) Stein wants my services, he’s going to have to ante up Sheff-type money. 3 years, 12M per, or I’m off to talk to the Mets and the Wilpon boys – they’ve already offered me equity and the opportunity to help Jeff Wilpon sort his baseball card collection.

  • I’m not going to be jacked up by some third-rate munchkin, Verne. I’ve got Dinklage on the other line right now. So have fun on the Mets—they’ll probably start you at, ahem, short.

  • The Yanks have offically broken 2 attendance records: road attendance and combined home-road attendance. Of course, they’ve already broken their franchise record by 200,000. To all Yankee fans, in NYC or elsewhere, congrats!
