The Price Might Be Right

The Daisuke Matsuzaka bidding sweepstakes is on. The Yankees and the Rangers are confirmed bidders, with the Red Sox, Cubs and Mets as possibles in the process. The Japanese club will announce as early as today or as late as next Tuesday the high bidder. Then the selected club has 30 days to bicker and bargain with his agent, the money hungry Scott Boras. Good luck!
The bidding closes Friday for Akinori Iwamura, a third baseman-infielder that the Red Sox are said to be verrry interested in. With good reason. He can hit, field and is only 27. The Padres have also expressed an interest. To the winners go the spoils, or in this case the fattest wallets will have the loudest voices. Money really does talk! Good luck to all involved. Better luck to the Red Sox. After all, I have a certain fondness for that particular team from Boston. And I understand there are others who feel the same nice is that!

Kaylee, they're going to go ALL OUT for pitching...just like we are about to restock our bullpen, which is in shambles! No closer, no set up except for Timlin, plenty of nothing! You're on early...and thanks for subscribing to my blog feed. It's right on my homepage. Hard for me to believe...have a great day K.

It's a necessary process. Sorta goes along with the bitter cold and the snow. But down there in La. land, isn't it the best time of year? Somewhat cooler and less humid? Enlighten me. After all, I'm a weather guy. Thanks Novy.
