So, K-Rod loses his 17.5 million dollar option and gets to live in Milwaukee. Great deal for him.

You really should only beat old people up when nobody is around, everyone knows this.

K-Rod won't be collecting saves. Axford is still the guy in the 9th. K-Rod definitely makes the Brew Crew's bullpen stronger. i'm still hoping that they put all of their cards on the table and try to trade for a SS or 3B as well.

I thought there was something around the lines that K-Rod said he'd only accept a trade to a team where he would be a closer? Or was that only to a winning team?

Boras, his new agent, said that “Closers don’t make good setup men. Does anyone want an unhappy setup man in their clubhouse?”

That was after he convinced Levine to sign Soriano, of course.

While in Montreal, someone said to me that they still miss the Expos. I had to feign sympathy.

I never use the word tragic when it comes to losing sports franchises. But losing the Expos certainly hurt a lot more people in Montreal and Quebec than you realize. Don't look at the dwindling attendance figures as any indication as to the following the team had, there were A LOT of fans. However, by the end things got to the point where people just gave up all hope and found other things to do. Which, in the summer, there is no shortage of events to attend in Montreal.

I have been to Canada too many times now to have NOT hit a strip club yet--total heterosexual fail.

Next time we're both in Montreal I'll take you, and you can leave the architect behind.
