The guy on the right here is Tony Jackson, the Dodgers beat writer for the Los Angeles Daily News, napping in the Shea Stadium dugout before a weekend game. And this is what happens when a beat reporter has to face the deadly triumvirate of:
• An overnight trip to New York from Los Angeles.
• Hearing another reporter ask, "So, what's the key to tonight, Skip?"
• Having to listen to Grady Little talk every goddamned day.
We'd fall asleep too, and we don't think the guy has anything to be ashamed of.
