With Opening Day just 100 days from now, MLB teams are trying to do everything they can to improve their roster through free agency, and the Los Angeles Dodgers seem to be thrift shopping in the same bargain bin as the Arizona Diamondbacks. Also, Jesse and Derek’s friendship is forever changed after today’s review of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
