A little funny, a little sad.

I was bored yesterday and started looking for information about Philip Humber's deal with the Royals, so I Googled him.

I thought it was funny, and kind of sad, that I got 3 relevant Philip Humber results, and then Google assumed that maybe I was actually looking for Kevin Mulvey instead.



Apparently Kevin Mulvey and Philip Humber are interchangeable.

I suppose it's like when my Netflix recommendation list tells me that I will like "Television Shows With A Strong Female Lead." (Apparently Netflix has seen the small shrines I keep to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars.)

This was just Google's way of saying "Oh, I see you are interested in mediocre pitching prospects who were traded to the Twins for Johan Santana and were ultimately wildly disappointing. May I interest you in a little Kevin Mulvey while you're here?"

Like I said...a little funny....a little sad. Sad for poor interchangeable Philip/Kevin. Sad for us. Funny at 2 am.
