He slurred his way through Sunday’s Dodgers-Giants AM radio broadcast (again), and sounds like he’s either nipping at the Cutty Sark from Rick Monday’s pocket flask between pitches innings, or on heavy meds to counter nasty narcoleptic fits.

• BRITS WON’T ADMIT WE WON’T BITE ON BECKHAM FRAUD: We’re losing faith in our brothers and sisters in Britain.
