Tommy Put on a Medica Clinic

Tommy Medica had the game of his life last night, going 5-for-5 with two home runs (5 & 6), 4 runs and 4 RBI. Somebody call a doctor, because Tommy Medica is so sick!

Oh, a few other thoughts come to mind. Cheesy and cheap are two, and that's only from the "ch" department. Surely, you've seen or heard the details by now: Conducting his own personal desert...
