Baseball Rant

The Yanks should not include Hughes in a deal for Johan. Collapse )

Hughes, even alone, in a 1 for 1 deal, should not be traded for Johan -- as long as the alternative is that Johan goes to free agency next season. As long as the yanks are providing the best offer sans Hughes, including him shouldn't be considered. Cashman knows this... does Hank Steinbrenner?

A mouse died in the walls of my office over the weekend. Facilities couldn't find it yesterday. An exterminator came this morning, but gave up the search. He said the smell would go away in a few days, and he (essentially) Febrezed the bad smelling area. This did not help.

Baseball Tonight

I'm heading to ESPN Zone tonight at 7. There are seven baseball games, including yanks, mets, and phillies -- also the pistons-cavs game starts at 8. They don't take reservations, but let me know if and when you may come by, and I'll try to get a appropriately sized table.

If anyone is still looking for a Wii, a lot of Gamestops are getting large shipments this week, which they are holding until Sunday. They'll also have Super Paper Mario, which I'm going to buy. The game was originally for the GameCube, but was just adapted to the Wii -- the real Mario platformer, Super Mario Galaxy, doesn't come out until Thanksgiving/Christmas season (that's a little bit of a guess, but with a 12/31 Japan launch date announced, it makes sense).

Here is gamestop's internal memo. Since the news will be announced in the newspaper, you may want to show up an hour before the store opens.

have you seen my baseball?

I've been impatient this year waiting for the season to start, but at least pitchers and catchers are down in FLA and ARI this week. I hadn't realized quite how much time I've been spending reading about offseason stuff though -- until today -- when I correctly spelled Mientkiewicz for the first time without checking. Yes, if you try to learn it, it isn't hard -- but learning the spelling by scanning random articles takes a bit more time.

Bye Bernie. I won't get sentimental, since I never got to appreciate your better years.
