My Morning in Exile

Happy San Fermin, everyone. When you get done having fun, read some of this stuff:

  • Ryan Braun to be Doug Melivn’s deputy?
  • I’m not going to judge Manny for doing steroids. I will judge him, however, for being a cheap sonofabitch.
  • Roy Halladay isn’t going anywhere.
  • “The Worst Team That Money Could Buy” could soon get a sequel.
  • Let freedom flush.
  • Finally, the All-Star Game has problems, but Adam Jones being part of it is not one of them.
  • And just remember: It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night is another thing.

    I think Halladay is gone and I (and many others) thought the same before the season started.  Despite the 27-14 start, current 43-41 record, attendance stinks.  I think the suits will be pressuring Ricciardi to dump payroll and Wells and Rios are probably next to impossible to move.  I think Rogers is going to run the Jays as a bare bones, low payroll club and the quicker they can move any and all big contracts the better (for them,not their fans).

    I find the Halladay situation very interesting as I fully understand the hypocrisy of trading within the division to the Yankees or Red Sox and how it could be self-defeating to send him to the Rays (lots of young talent) or Orioles.  However the Red Sox and Rays have some great young, major league ready talent to swap.  Trying to think of other teams that have a need and the resources for Cy Young level pitcher as well as the tradeable talent to be good suitors for Halladay.  My short list, excluding the above mentioned, are the Dodgers, White Sox,… Read more »

    The problem with the Mets’ situation is that their core is probably as good as it is going to get. Regardless of what the neanderthals on the FAN say, trading Reyes and Wright would be sheer madness, and dealing Beltran and Santana would only be slightly less nutty – and probably impossible, given their contracts. Frankly, given the weakness of the rest of the division, I think the Mets should make a couple small deals and hope things click when everyone comes off the DL. Will that happen? Who knows. But it seems like the least-bad option. The core problems… Read more »

    I’m gonna give Manny a pass on the post-game spread thing because I’m willing to bet it was him being an airhead than being cheap.

    the day Manny becomes aware of the postgame spread is the day it is pitched into his strike zone at 95 mph.
