TIL from WEEI tonight about Bobby Dalbec. His walk-up music is the Doors. his dad is an exec at Atlantic. he has an extensive guitar collection and used to hang out with Rob Thomas.

wow that's a lineup to conjure with. shea hillenbrand was the future once. funny that trot and mirabelli crossed over with guys like offerman, feels like such distinct eras to me.

tanner houck is sad that, as an unvaccinated asshole named 'tanner', he won't be able to make his upcoming start in toronto
