Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay (Again) ?

Jason Bay has not had much luck since becoming a free agent. The Boston Red Sox offered him $60 million for four years of his services and the NY Mets made it $65 million. But his agent, Joe Urban, has been in touch with the Red Sox again. It would be great to have a monster bat like Jason's in the middle of the lineup but where would all the outfielders play? Would Mike Cameron only play when a lefty pitches, spelling JD Drew or Jacoby Ellsbury? Or maybe Ellsbury would be part of that mammoth trade we've all waited for but probably will not happen. I don't know...I want Jacoby's speed at the top of the lineup. I think that is essential. But having Bay back would certainly be sweet and Adrian Gonzalez along with him? Holy you-know-what! This is a job for Superman....errr, Theo. I'll leave it up to him. One thing's for sure and that is this...the Boston Red Sox could use another bopper bat. That's for sure. But at what cost? Boston's shopping days are most likely over (famous last words).

As you read in the post directly below this one, the national champion University of Connecticut women's basketball team pulled away in the second half and thumped number two Stanford by a score of 80-68. They were behind at the half, the first time that's happened in their 49 game double digit victory streak. So there's Connecticut and everybody else until someone beats them. I don't see that happening unless injury rules its ugly head. Please...NO.

It's Christmas Eve Day all around the world. I want to wish you a happy and healthy Christmas and I'll be back tomorrow morning with all the non-news. 'Tis the season for non-news, you know. Click on the title of this post for the Hartford Courant's Jeff Jacobs' take on Maya Moore and the UCONN game and as always, BE WELL. See ya.
