Some baseball

  • Javier Vazquez wants to be traded to an East Coast team. Arizona GM Josh Byrnes, formally of the Red Sox front office, may want to give the Sox a call. Before his New York experience, Vazquez was considered one of the best pitchers in baseball. I'd take a chance on him.
  • In Boston, many are saying the Sox should go after Paul Konerko. I'd love to see Konerko in the Red Sox lineup, but what would happen during interleague play without a DH. Francona would be forced to take either Konerko or Ortiz out of the lineup. I know there's bigger problems out there, but it would still be an issue.
  • Carlos Delgado is rumored to be on the trade market. It's pathetic the Marlins sign a quality high profile free agent and then look to trade him the following year.
  • The Mets are rumored to be interested in Delgado. Then again, they're rumored to sign every free agent. Maybe they'll go after Terrell Owens.
  • Kim Ng, now the Assistant GM of the Dodgers, may become the first female GM. There's plenty of GM's who never played the game, so it shouldn't be a problem to have a female GM. One question though: if she's hired, will Steve Phillips need to wear a dress in those stupid fake press conferences for ESPN where he pretends to be the GM of different teams?
  • Some good links for people who want to keep up with the latest rumors. I'm really upset that no one told me about this site before. Has ton of rumors and links from local papers across the country with little previews for each article it links. Extra Bases: The Boston Globe set up a blog for Red Sox fans to keep up with the offseason rumor mill. One more link for those of you looking for some porn.

Is it me, or is there just no point whatsoever for those stupid simulated press conferences?
What a waste of time, jeez ESPN, need that much of a filler to waste time? Too tired of having that one guy formerly of MtV doing human interest pieces??

I actually fell for that porn link. Was wondering what Alan had discovered, only to see Miss Jail Bird.
Funny comments about those fake ESPN press conferences. How many more teams are they going to do?
Will be very dissapointed if Delgado is not a Marlins next year. He hit over 30 HR's, with a busted wrist last season. Whenever this organization looks like it is headed in the right direction, they do something to reverse course.
Big Pats game in Miami this weekend! Patriotsy2k will be in the 5th row, see you all on TV!
