Life's crazy, man.
Yesterday, after the workout, I was standing at a corner outside Yankee Stadium. Randy Dobnak walked by and asked what I was doing. "Waiting for an Uber driver", I said. "I'm right here!", he replied. He's your Game Two starter. Our pregame on FSN is at 3:30 Central.
The Parrot Man always delivers. Randy Dobnak stinks. He wants no business pitching in this game. Someone call an Uber, get the fuck outta here.
Biggest question of the postseason: Who is the one jackass to give Randy Dobnak a bad rating on Uber?

Randy Dobnak is a great story that doubles as an uncomfortable reminder that the difference between guys who are good enough at baseball to be millionaires and guys who can't make a living off the game is so slim and often just a matter of opportunity!
For all the fanfare around Randy Dobnak's story, he has 8 people in the stands that came to see him today: his parents, his agent, his agent's dad, his wife, her dad, her roommate and her brother.
I’m glad for Randy Dobnak that he persevered and made it to the majors (and he seems like a really awesome person) but it’s ridiculous and gross that an industry makes its billions on the backs of extremely underpaid labor in the minors and independent leagues

Here’s another Randy Dobnak fun fact.
He’s horrible at baseball
Edwin Encarnacion picks up another hit after lining a single to left-center. The bases are now loaded with nobody out, and that will knock Randy Dobnak out of the game.

Randy Dobnak drove Uber while he was in the minor leagues, where players get paid very little, to make money. But some fans at Yankee Stadium are chanting “U-ber dri-ver.” That sounds more like taunting, though.
I’m sad about Randy Dobnak sucking. I really wanted him to do well
