The Hot Stove

Sad to report that Elrod Hendicks, longtime player & coach for the Baltimore Orioles died yesterday. He spent more than 40 years in the O's organization, an achievement unlikely to be duplicated in today's world. From all accounts, a true gentlemen.

Yanks made a couple of moves in the last few days, most noticably the signing of CF Johnny Damon. I guess it's a big deal is because for the past four years Damon was with the Red Sox and was the "face" of the 2004 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox (oh, how it pains me to write that). It's not the first time a Red Sox player has come to the Yankees (see: Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens) but holy fuck, the way the tabloids & sports radio go on about it, it's THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT. I shouldn't be surprised, usually anything where the NYY or BRS are involved is treated as some act of aggression. Personally, I think with Damon's #'s, below average arm & ugly mug, the Yanks overpaid, but I'd rather start the season with Damon in CF, as opposed to say, Bubba Crosby. And at what point in your life do you drop the Bubba & use your real name? Which, by the way, is Richard. Yanks also signed Bernie to a one year deal. Glad to see Bernie will be back in the Bronx for another year. It's so rare these days when an athlete plays for one team his whole career. Where have all the Tony Gwynn's gone?

Ok, blogger is going all batty on me, I'm outta here.
