I Love Me Some Hot Stove!

For real, I do enjoy baseball's offseason. It's always fun to talk about trade rumors that arise from the GM meetings, which free agents your team will sign, and what the team will look like by the time pitchers and cathers report. This year's hot free agents include Matt Holiday, Jason Bay and John Lackey. And that's about it for big names. Stay tuned for the action!

Jason Varitek today decided to pick up his player option for 2010 at $3 milliom. Smart move financially for V-Tek, as he won't get that much anywhere else, but I do wonder if there was a starter's job out there for him with a team that has a young pitching staff. He obviously is not the player he once was, but I can see him being a valuable mentor to a young staff, showing them his preparation methods and such. With Victor Martinez as the starter next season, Tek will not see much playijng time here.

Switching to the NFL, there's a lot of talk on sports radio about where Larry Johnson may end up, or if any team will take a chance on him at all. The frontrunners mentioned so far are the Houston Texans. The Patriots have also been mentioned, especially after Bill Belichick said during a press conference this week that the teeam will have "internal discussions" about it. I think in the right situation, LJ can still be a productive back. He just needs to learn to keep his mouth shut. Maybe Dick Vermeil had it right when he told LJ it was time to take the diaper off. He still may not have...

Continuing with the NFL, I still will never understand why players insist on providing their opponents with bulleting board material. I mean, grown men shouldn't need someone to talk trash to motivates themselves to perform, but we have all seen examples in the past of a player talking trash before a game, then his team goes out and get crushed. This week, Vernon Davis is talking trash about chicago, while Chad Ochocinco was going to send mustard to the Steelers because they "won't be able to ketchup" (He must read LOV). I just don't get what the motivation is. The 49ers are on a terrible slide. Why give the Bears more incentive to beat you. And the Bengals are playing well, but this will be a tough game against their biggest division rival. Just shut up, play the game, and stop motivating your opponent.

I know no one here cares about soccer, but this is a sad story. I can't imagine feeling like so bad about life that jumping in front of a train is the only solution. Any thoughts on this, Jug?

In non-sports related topics, I'm watching Conan right now and he is interviewing Heather Locklear. I find it amazing that she looks as good as she does at age 48. Holly wood chicks age well for the most part.

I think that is it for today.

Fulfilling an obligation to H.

First.

Beth said...

Something tells me H really wouldn't have cared if you didn't fulfill that "obligation".

Beth said...

And let me add my agreement to Kod's statement from yesterday:

"after 3 years, I've come to care about a bunch of random people I'll probably never meet"

Except for me, change "probably" to "certainly", especially after mize's comments yesterday... (s)

JFreak said...

Shut your face when you're talking to me.

JFreak said...

Looks like it's time for a nap.

Beth said...

"Shut your face when you're talking to me."

Don't make me slap a bitch.
