We have been a bit light on the baseball related content lately, so here are six thoughts:
  • Mama, let your babies grow up to be lefties: Javier Lopez signed a one-year deal with the Red Sox for $1.35 million. This once again proves that as long as you can throw left-handed and have a pulse you can make a lot of money as a major league pitcher.
  • Who's getting better value for the money? The Red Sox signing Youkilis, Pedroia and Papelbon for a combined 11 years for $87.75 million or the Yankees signing Teixeira, Sabathia and Burnett for a combined 20 years for $423.5 million? Assuming that you don't have money to burn, I'd say the Red Sox are being a bit more pennywise.
  • Of course, the Red Sox spent a combined $106 million for 9 years of J.D. Drew and Julio Lugo, so I guess you can't be winners all the time.
  • The MLB Network should be classified by the FDA as an addictive substance.
  • Have I mentioned that I'm going to Cooperstown for the Jim Rice induction with The Hey and Bismo? It should be a fun weekend. I haven't been to an induction since 1990 (Joe Morgan and Jim Palmer), so I'm really looking forward to it.
  • Truck Day is February 6! That's just over 2 weeks away!!!
