Did you know that performance enhancing drugs come in gummy form? I didn't until last night when the dullard of the Biogenesis scandal -- Anthony Bosch -- appeared on 60 Minutes. So, can I get steroids from Haribo? Are they shaped like little syringes? We talking world's largest gummy worm? Flintstones gummy vitamins?

His favorite player was Will Clark. Oh, and he hails from just up the road. He's a Texan. His name is Clayton Kershaw. Maybe you've heard of him.

Finally, just knowing that Derek Holland has maybe been walking around with a cane had me singing this all weekend:
