Hey kids, diamonds in the snow sparkle.
- WHY is Royals pitcher Kyle Davies spending his offseason building McDonalds franchises with his pops instead of honing his goddamn craft? That 5.65 K/9 ratio isn't going to improve itself, dummy.
- HOW coincidental is it that the Cardinals signed a Japanese pitcher who lost his job in Japan because of a drunk-driving incident? Katsuhiko Maekawa will feel right at home with Tony LaRussa.
- ISN'T the new Marlins Stadium website totally useless since the place isn't going to open for at least forty months?
- WHAT does it say about me that all my favorite Christmas songs are kinda sorta downers?
That's it for this week, folks, although we might pop up sometime this weekend if anything happens in the Mark Teixeira Sweepstakes. We'll be live next Monday and Tuesday but then taking an extended holiday break from December 24th through January 4th. After we get back: 2009 Season Previews! In some format yet to be decided! Have a good weekend and we'll see you Monday.
