Yes, but if he is going to take a short deal, why go four years? Why not do one or two with a player option or something. Going for a mid-length deal seems really dumb.

Yeah true. I'm only half paying attention to my posts during this Leafs game.

The Red Sox officially interviewed Dale Sveum today. They interviewed Pete Mackanin earlier this week. Mike Maddux could be next.

Peter O'Malley, who sold the Dodgers to NewsCorp in 1998 (who then sold it to Frank McCourt in 2004), is attempting to buy the team back. He is getting together a group of investors to attempt making an offer.

Another group involving former Dodger greats Orel Hershisher and Steve Garvey are also interested in purchasing the team.

so the Yankees have released Andrew Brackman. The guy is young, so a team will take a chance on the kid. Mets, I'm looking at you.

For those in Boston and Chicago, what are your local media reports stating, as far as front runners are concerned?

Trying to narrow down, who out of who being interviewed here in St. Louis has a good shot.

The guys on the radio here in St. Louis are basically saying that Francona is the only one who is ready to take over. I wonder what he will ask for, contract wise, compared to the others.

You kind of have to hire him once you interview.

St. Louis: So, what are your credentials?
Tito: Won two World Series in in seven seasons. Players manager. I've handled divas and high-profile players. Not taking any time off, I want to manage for next season.

...
St. Louis: Well we have reached a decision. We are sorry, but you aren't in our future plans.
Tito:?
St. Louis: We are going with Willie-fuckin-Randolph!

No, I want Sizemore! I think he will do better on a established team. Even the Rays I think are a better fit. Less pressure for him to perform if it doesn't work out. If it does work out, then more pressure for him to perform.

Also, future HoF'er Johnny Damon is available. Don't let me down beisbol.

I've heard them talking about giving Oquendo a chance too. I mean he does already have pretty well established relationships with all the players and has been working under Larussa's wing for forever. I'm sure the St. Louis fans would welcome him with open arms as well. Don't know how well he would do as manager though.....it would be interesting.

Right-hander Chien-Ming Wang agreed to terms with the Nationals on Thursday on a one-year deal, pending a physical, according to a source.

I hope it's for a low price so we don't feel bad about cutting him after spring training.
