Ok, let's see what people have already posted that I missed because I've been too busy at work:
Dustin Pedroia becomes the first dwarf to win an MVP award. I don't know what's up with this MVP voting. Pedroia wasn't even the best player on his own team and he wins the award. I think Youkilis should have won it. And the NL MVP should have gone to either Ryan Howard or Manny. As a Dodgers fan, it pains me to say that Ryan Howard got robbed. But he does have a Championship Ring, so he's got that going for him. I'm sorry, if you don't make the playoffs, you better put up some overwhelming numbers to get an MVP, and Pooholes didn't do that in my opinion. Stupid writers.
Pacman completed rehab, now he's waiting for Goodell to reinstate him so he can screw up again. The over/under is set at eight weeks. Seriously, Pro Athletes get WAY too many chances.
The Cubs signed Dempster to a four-year, $52 million contract. Ha, the Cubs fell for the classic contract year pitcher. Freak, cherish the next couple of years where he goes 5-10 before the inevitable injury/buyout happens. Nicely done, Cubs management, you saved me from having go buy a new laptop after I destroyed my current one from reading a "Dodgers sign Dempster to a six-year $87 million contract" headline on ESPN's front page.
More baseball news, the Mariners are hiring some bench coach guy from the A's as their manager. Awesome, I guess you can't get much worse than losing 101 games. Hire a dude off the street and you would still probably stumble into 62 wins.
RichRod (I almost typed RichRob) tells UM fans to get a life. Well, he ALMOST told them that. I think the exact quote was, "You almost want to tell them, 'Get a life'." Way to encourage the alumni to donate in a recession there, guy. The Michigan PR dood needs to sit RichRob down for a 19-hour session of "stuff not to say into a microphone or to anyone with a notepad".
Jerry Stackhouse is apparently trying to force a trade. He wants more minutes. Unfortunately for the Stack, everyone has figured out that he's about six years past his prime. If I was Cuban, I'd charter a flight Charlotte, find out what country club Jordan was at, start a round of golf at $10k a hole, then start playing like crap. Get him hammered at the clubhouse at the halfway mark and tip the bartender to serve you water instead of vodka. On the 18th hole, bet him that if you make a 10 foot put, he'll trade you Raymon Felton, Sean May and a second round pick for Stackhouse. Then run like hell when Oakley figures out that you were sober the entire time. I don't care how old he is, you do not want to be catching an elbow from him.
And that's pretty much all I've got.
