Just an incredible factoid that I want to share with the class
This I just read from Buster Olney on tWWL:
Taking the Yankee$ out of the equation; only one free agent has signed a contract larger than $40 MM so far this off season.
Of course, we are talking about the Dumpster ($52MM for 4).
Not the Sawx, nor Mutts, nor Asstrolls. K-Rod went for $36MM for 3, remember?
So when we sit here today, this last day of the 100th Year of Futility, and wonder why the hell we haven't gotten a right fielder yet, just keep in mind that, so far, it has been a really, really, REALLY strange off-season. The fish just ain't bitin'.
Before I go:
Still wondering what in God's name Luis Vizcaino did that was so damn bad that the Rockies would consider trading him straight up for the turd sammich that is Marquis' contract? Yes, he cannot get out lefties, whatsoever. But he has a .170 BAA with righties.
So he's a ROOGY. Although we already have a few of those. At least he isn't a turd sammich.
