I’ve long admired ESPN’s Peter Gammons and Buster Olney. Both have a long track record of excellent reporting on baseball and a convivial, fan-friendly blah blah blah.

But this paragraph, from an article carrying both men’s bylines, requires a background in cryptography and four swigs from a bottle of Maker’s Mark to decipher:

The Boston Red Sox or the Washington Nationals continue to be the most likely destinations for Teixeira, executives involved in the process believe — the Red Sox, with an offer that might be in the range of $170 million, and the Nationals perhaps with a proposal greater than that of Boston.

My goodness, fellas. Remember the funnel!
