A few thoughts on day 2 of 2009:
  • Admit it. When you were a kid, you thought you would have a Jetsons-like flying car by 2009, didn't you?
  • At this point, I'd just be happy if Detroit would actually build a car I wanted to buy.
  • I like the Brad Penny signing by the Sox. If he's healthy, he's a good #4/5 starter in a rotation with Beckett, Lester, Daisuke and Wake. At $5 million for one year (with the potential for another $3 million in incentives), this is a low risk, high potential reward signing for Theo.
  • Penny's career: 94-75, 4.06 ERA, 1,032 K's, 475 walks in 1,460 innings over 9 years.
  • A.J. Burnett's career: 87-76, 3.81 ERA, 1,278 K's, 568 walks in 1,378 innings over 10 years.
  • So why is one guy getting $82.5 million and one is getting $5 million?
  • I'm probably going to get really addicted to the new MLB Network. Did you see the broadcast of Don Larsen's perfect game last night, complete with original commercials? Very cool stuff.

The boys here LOVE the MLB station, especially in high definition. Daniel stayed overnight at his cousins house Friday night and commented on how much he loved the new MLB station. It is a big hit in our house of course. Us girls could take it or leave it.
