A couple of thoughts:

- I haven't been doing much baseball blogging lately, but there hasn't been a lot going on other than steroid talk and I'm pretty tired of that. Probably the biggest trade that has happened lately is the third baseman swap between the Blue Jays and Cardinals. Both teams got rid of some excess baggage. The Cards Scott Rolen and manager Tony LaRussa didn't get along at all, so it's probably for the best that he's gone. Toronto's Troy Glaus is an accused steroid user. As players they're something of a wash. Rolen is a great defensive third baseman, while Glaus is a better hitter. I don't think the trade does a lot for either team.

- I find the two week wait between the conference championships and the Super Bowl too long. The incessant discussion of every aspect of the game and the players is just too much for me. The media has been hysterical the last couple of days because Tom Brady was sighted wearing a walking cast as he went to his supermodel girlfriend's house in New York. Turns out it was only a slight ankle sprain, but it still made the back page of the Post. With a New York team involved and the unbeaten Patriots, the media frenzy is going to be almost unbearable for the next week-and-a-half.
