    January 25, 2010:
    Very little to talk about…

    Posted by Christine E. at 9:23 pm in Baseball,Random Thoughts,Red Sox No Comments

    OK, I understand that losing Jason Bay was a big deal, and that there is precious little to talk about right now, but Jason Bay IS GONE–can we move on and talk about something else?

    Apparently not, as the buzz around town is how Jason Bat was thisclose to signing a 4-year, $60 million deal with the Sox, and then all of a sudden there was an issue with his knee and his shoulder, which put the deal in jeopardy. Long story short, after 4 doctors, 3 of which said there was no cause for alarm on either his knee or his shoulder, and a bunch of hemming and hawing by the Sox, Jason Bay signed with the Mets…

    Is it true? Who knows–I have always been of the opinion that the truth is usually about 1/2 way between 2 sides of any story…and never forget that baseball is a business…so let’s wish Jason Bay, Godspeed and farewell, and be grateful he didn’t sign with the Skanks…

    Back in the early Oughts, there were 3 superstar shortstops in baseball: Nomar Garciaparra, Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter–and probably the unofficial 4th was Miguel Tejada…Fast forward to 2010, and the only shortstop left standing is Jeter–Nomar plays 1st base (CHECK when he plays) and A-Fraud plays 3rd. And it looks like Miguel Tejada will be joining the ranks as well, as he has signed a 1-year, $6 million contract with the Oreos–to play 3rd base…

    Weirdo stat: Did you know that Jonathan Papelbon and David Aardsma had the same number of saves in 2009? Here is how the rest of their stats play out…

    Paplebon vs Aardsma

    hmm…very interesting…

    Because is pretty much constantly shoved down our throats, there is probably no one on the face of the earth that doesn’t know the Skanks are the winningest franchise in all of pro sports. Ducky. 2nd to them is the Montreal Canadiens with 23. Can Montreal start working on a multiple year winning streak? Because that would be a way cool thing if someone other than the Skanks held the honor…

    And NO, I am not jealous, or bitter–I just don’t want to hear it anymore…

    So the Rangers are being sold again–this time to a group that includes Hall of Fame pitcher (and current Rangers president) Nolan Ryan.

    By the By: Johnny Damon is STILL unemployed…and still wants like a skatillion dollars a year for 52 years–Sure Skeezy Bastard–good luck with that…

    So, my husband and I bought a Roku to watch Netflix on our TV at home–I hear that you can also get MLB TV on it–does anyone know anything about this? That would be way cool if it did–because, once, before I die, I would like to actually watch a Red Sox/Skankee game called by someone other than a Skankee sycophant (Direct TV only broadcasts these games in PA through YES, or some other Skankee loving channel…)
