Another reason to hate CC

324

CC says that he's trying to recruit LeBron to NY. I know this is more of a basketball story, but I just can't help how much I despise CC right now. I went so far as to watch Legally Blonde with my wife last night instead of listening to him spew filth on Jay Leno's show. Yeah, Legally Blonde. And I'm not ashamed to admit that I'd watch it a thousand times again if it means not hearing CC say how much he loves NY and that this team overcame obstacles or some other nonsense.

Wedge sounds like a man heading to the gallows

"This has been difficult, but it's harder for everybody outside of baseball that's around me," he said. "It's part of it. I understand that." "We felt if we could get healthy, stay healthy and the guys we were counting on in the bullpen to step up into their roles, then we would have a pretty good shot at it, but none of that happened," Wedge said. "And then there were the trades we made and I understand they were out of necessity, but that's tough. But I understand it." "I know that sometimes change has to be made for change's sake," Wedge said. "You've got to be professional about it. You've got to understand it and I do."

Our next fearless leaders

  I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't think Eric Wedge will be our manager next year.  I'm going to assume that would make all coaching positions available as well.  Who are...

Tribe was in on Pedro?

40

According to John Heyman, the Tribe made a $7 mm offer to Pedro before they signed Pavano. So if the Pavano signing is worth at least $1.5 mm and potentially up to $5.3 mm, does that mean they essentially have $1.7 - 5.5 mm available? Regardless if it's available, even knowing Pedro's injury history/risk, I'd rather take the $7 mm gamble on Pedro than the $1.5 mm gamble on Pavano.

Sympathies to his family. I wonder if/how this affects the Twins.

Indians make offer to Joe Nelson?

30

cleveland.com is reporting that the Indians are one of the 4 favorites of reliever Joe Nelson. They are also saying that the Tribe has made an offer, but his agent won't provide details. Hey, if we aren't going to load up on starters, load up relievers. Works for me.
