    And I STILL need to order my tickets…

    Holy Buckets! It’s amazing how much time it takes to plan a birthday–for a 5-year old. And of course, said party was on Saturday- the first day the Summer Tickets were on sale. Yeah, I could have jumped on after the party, but have you actually ever BEEN to a party of 15 5-year olds? […]

    Raines, Bagwell and Rodriguez make the Hall…

    Not sure any of the 3 candidates for the Hall are a huge surprise. As part of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance (BBA), I voted for all 3 of them myself. But getting to the required 75% is a huge deal; just ask Tim Raines, who didn’t get there until his final year on the ballot, […]

    Some random thoughts as I consider the best way to wrap my kid’s presents when she has suddenly decided to be allergic to sleep… Apparently, David Dombrowski tried to move That Clay Person in a trade to the Marlins. And the Fish said no thanks. Interesting, because he is reasonably inexpensive at $13.5 million for […]

    Well, the Sox got Pitchers for Christmas…

    Just like I hoped for… So why doesn’t this deal make me more excited for 2017? Because while I really like the deal that is bringing one of the best relievers you have never heard of, Tyler Thornburg to the Sox–although I am disappointed to see Travis Shaw leave… I just reallyREALLY do not like […]

    Can we turn the heat up a bit on the Stove?

    I know, it was just Thanksgiving, and we still have like 3 1/2 months until Pitchers and Catchers, which is pretty much a lifetime in baseball time. And the Winter Meetings are next week, and thing usually really start moving then… But as the days get darker, and colder, and we’ve got like 15 minutes […]
