Ahh, yes. My bad. Dang it.

It's for that reason that I don't think the Yankees try to trade Rodriguez. For the amount they'd have to pay to get rid of him, it's better to just have him play this year.

What I'm trying to say is, I don't want the Phillies to consider Rodriguez or Granderson or anyone else like that.

Guys, I don't know much about MLB history, but...is this for real? Like, is it actually called this by people?

Jeffrey Loria strikes again: Ozzie Guillen has been fired after one season. Could Toronto be his next destination?

Before boner was slang for an erection, it referred to a boneheaded move.

Christ.

Ozzie is a bimbo but Loria is an asshat. Why he didn't get another season is beyond me.

Why would anyone be for the Giants unless they're either longtime fans or from San Fran? They just won the damn thing two years ago.
