i'm just glad the mets stayed away from 'tek. he's as shot as they come.

speaking of the mets and former red sawks, there's a rumor going around that boras, manny and the mets are holding off on a potential deal until just before mets single game tickets go on sale.

i don't buy it, but it's been suggested, so yea... we'll see. i still think he'll end up back in LA

What's going on with the Cubs and the Orioles. They're like BFF now or something. OMG!

Can I just change the subject from the transactions and make mention that I really hope the league doesn't go to replay reviews to determine the outcomes of the games. I don't know, I just kind of like the human aspect of making calls rather than using technology "just to be sure." Call me old fashioned...

I don't see how unnecessarily allowing umpires to blow calls and incorrectly determine outcomes of games is good for baseball.

The only issue to me is that because there aren't many moments in a baseball game when the ball is truly dead, replay has to be confined to some specific situations in order to avoid disrupting the game -- foul/HR situations, maybe some two-out or bases-empty calls, and that's about it.

I think replay is good for determining home runs. With all these new-fangled ballparks nowadays, you can't see where in tarnation the god dang home run line is. Replay will be good for that because we've seen too many botched home run calls 'cuz the umps can't see shit from their vantage point.

I'm sort of a purist, but that should not preclude me from embracing something that would improve the game. Reply for HR calls is perfect.

Well, shit. I gotta report to Tempe in six days.

Time to put away the fishin' pole and the motorsickle.

Gotta get in shape and get rid of the beer-gut.

Fuckin' Willits better be in camp early and in the cage by the time I get there. That boy better be workin' his ass off this year. If he don't improve his average, then fuck him, I'll make his life miserable this season.

-John
