Quote of the day
"The Lockout gave me a lots of time to consider what was important to me at this stage of my life and career. Over the last week, I've played out every scenario in my head over and over. It always came back to one thing for me: a winning role. This was a exciting process and after much deliberation, I would like to quote the great poet Jimmy Buffett and take my chances ‘Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season.’ " -- Shane Battier, tweeting his decision to sign with the Miami Heat
Albert Pujols to the Angels for 10 years, $250 million. Stunner. I guess if you’re going to sign a 32-year-old for ten years, it makes more sense to do that in the American League.
I wonder if Pujols talked to Jim Thome before making this decision.
Last call for managers to join a qualifying league for the RIHC. It appears that we have ample interest to form a second AA league, so if you are on the fence, the time has come to make that decision. I expect the league to be filled by Friday. If you are interested, please provide your email address in this forum thread. The league will be hosted at ESPN, and the draft will be a slow online draft starting sometime next week and hopefully finishing by Dec. 25th.
