Wednesday news-a-go-go

Actual headline “Matsuzaka dines with Red Sox, leaves deal to Boras“. It’d be better if Borat did his negotiating.
Jeff Francis signed a 4y, $13.5m deal with the Rockies. Nice.
Added By Dave: Angels spend $50 million on Gary Matthews! Woohoo!
Derek says: As Mariner fans, we should all be extremely happy about this latest signing

On ESPN, Barry Melrose, who I find to be one of the most vapid and obviously uninformed analysts ever to grace ESPN’s sets, raved about Morneau and said that at 25, Morneau would win “5 or 6 more”.

Multiple MVP winners:
2 (about twenty players)
3, only 7 players: Berra, Campanella, DiMaggio, Foxx, Mantle, Musial, Schmidt
7, only one player: Bonds

So Justin Morneau is going to go down in history as the second best hitter in the history of baseball. I know Melrose is Canadian and over-excited about this, but it also makes it clear that he has no idea what he’s talking about or what it takes to win more than one MVP.

Also, my nearly-new Logitech laser mouse is totally flipping out on me, making it really hard to do work. Grrrrrrrrrr.

    44. And Schmidt will be signed for 5 years $70 million. All because of all those “superstars.”

    52. Oooh, Stats Stringer at Safeco. Instead of watching the game on Gameday, could be the friggin’ Gameday Master.

    I for one would love for DMZ to become a reporter with the Ms. Although on second thought, what would that do to this site?

    I dunno, I kinda liked “Pitch f/x Operator — Track every pitch for television, Internet and stadium video production.”

    No update on a Reed deal?

    I believe Dave said he wasn’t going to talk about possible player moves as he did in the past … this may be one of those.

    I believe Dave said he wasn’t going to talk about possible player moves as he did in the past … this may be one of those.

    Actually, I believe Dave is purposely ignoring questions about the deal for a variety of good reasons.

    1) Churchill already did the speculative players involved.
    2) He’s waiting until the deal is done or not done before saying anything.
    3) He’s a cockteasing whore.

    As Slade would say: “Patience, Robin. Patience.”
