    How, exactly, do they put a soft cast on your NOSE? That is what they did to Craig Hansen, who talked about his sleep apnea problem. And it was pretty bad. On an average person, our sleep gets interrupted, for whatever reason, an average of 4 times per hour–this is normal. Craig Hansen’s sleep interruptions? 56 times an hour…at that rate, he was getting about 2 hours of sleep a night–and apparently, was a HORRIBLE snorer…

    From Craig: “(It) went really well…they took out my tonsils and deviated septum. It makes me able to breathe a little bit easier and sleep a lot better. Now I’m able to get a full night’s sleep and wake up in the morning and feel replenished and everything….When I did the sleep study last season…they said I pretty much didn’t sleep at all. I basically had no clue until I woke up the next morning and still felt tired.” So now, hopefully, he can be a key component of the bullpen, as he was supposed to be when the Sox signed the 24 year old right out of college with a 4 year/ $4 million contract–which is very rare for a draftee…The Congressional hearing began today–Oh! How I wish I could be home to watch them! Mercenary Roger and Brian McNamee face off with regard to both of their depositions last week, and the Mitchell Report. Starstruck Much? This is more than a little disturbing: from Democratic Rep Diane Watson: “I enjoyed talking with him…”It’s always good to meet the person who is in the spotlight. … I told him, ‘This is not a trial.'” She also said their discussions “included baseball stories and personal accounts about the Sept. 11 attacks.” Maybe they could all go to lunch and Diane could get some work tips from Debbie! Ewww…….

    What I think is going to rip the lid off the whole thing is that Andy Pettitte has (if sources can be believes) testified that Roger told him he uses HGH….Holy Buckets! If that is the case, Roger is in a WHOLE heap o’ trouble. Sources also say that Roger and Andy have not spoken since right around the time that Andy did the standup guy thing and revealed he used HGH a couple of times. I guess Roger felt that Andy should lie for him…

    When I was updating a friend on all of this, they say to me, I know husbands and wives cannot testify against each other–doesn’t the same hold for heterosexual life partners? Apparently not…

    While many people were left scratching their heads over the Sox’s decision to activation BatSh*t Julian’s option for the 2008 campaign, now it seems like a genius move. With Curt Schilling out indefinitely, and the durability concerns about Clay Buchholz over a whole season, his importance to the pitching staff should not be discounted. His numbers weren’t exceptional (7-11, with a 5.15 ERA) he did pitch better than his record, and he is as amusing as hell to watch (remember the bouncing of the ball or rolling it like a bowling ball?) GREAT stuff!

    Hey! Did you hear tomorrow is the day Pitchers and Catchers report? And 2 weeks to the 1st Spring Training Game? Whoo Hoo!
