A few things on a Saturday evening...

- This is post number 800 to my blog. Woo-hoo!

- You may have heard that Hanley Ramirez signed a six-year, $70 million contract with the Marlins. This comes shortly after Evan Longoria of the Rays signed a long-term deal with the team. Does it make sense for young players to give up years of free agency for the security of a long term deal? I would say yes. Is Ramirez's life going to be significantly different if he makes, say, $90 million instead of $70 million? Of course not. But if he gets injured tomorrow he's set for life.

- Saw Iron Man today with J. No spoilers here, but I agree with the majority opinion; it's a great super-hero movie. Robert Downey, Jr. is perfectly cast as Tony Stark, and Jeff Bridges seems to love playing the bald, bearded bad guy. Go check it out.

- Speaking of Iron Man, check this out. Marvel and DC's summer movie tentpoles discuss their similarities and differences. Thanks to The Hey for pointing it out.
