Can I Just Say...

...that it's comments like these that make this all worthwhile.

(Interior-Day-LA Times Editor's office. Jacob Luft has just turned his article and an editor is reviewing it)

Editor (looking over article): Hmmm....hmmm. Lots of numbers... what's this VORP thingee?

Luft: It's a statistical tool used to calculate the value of a player based on his statistics from previous seasons. The best way to evaluate players is by their previous performance so I thought, what the hey, let's take a look at the most active teams in a very busy off-season and see if they actually improved themselves. I think this kind of analysis would be interesting for our readers.

(pause)

Editor: Ya know what would make this work? A shot at the McCourts!

(Luft looks puzzled. Fade to black.)
