We apologize for being a little late this week as Serena (the person responsible for posting our notes on time) was running so late for Christmas dinner that she forgot to post our blog. : / Sorry!
That being said, since we are in holiday mode, we’re only going to post the results from the poll and our baseball notes. Last Friday, we asked you which team had performed the best with off season acquisitions to date. The question only garnered 4 votes. We fear we’re losing you folks. The total vote results keep getting smaller and smaller. The winning choice with a pitiful 2 votes was, “The TBB. You ladies will definitely get a picture with TOWSNBN soon enough.” This must be because you feel guilty about the time you chose to put us on a TV show only if we were played by Alyssa Milano and Jessica Simpson. We can see right through you like a pane of glass. You cannot fool us. Only 1 person thought that the Mariners led the pack by signing Cliff Lee. After all, look what he did for the Phillies. 1 moron actually voted for the Mets. We’re not even giving you the satisfaction of making fun of you. No one voted for the Phillies and their acquisition of Roy Halladay, which we find a bit strange, but…to each his own.
On Tuesday, the Yankees rocked the boat a bit by signing RHP Javier Vazquez and LHP Boone Logan from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for OF Melky Cabrera, LHP Michael Dunn, RHP Arodys Vizcaino, and cash considerations. In further Team Jacob news, Roy Halladay took out a full-page newspaper advertisement thanking the city and the team’s fans. He is quoted as saying, “Toronto will forever have a special place in my heart. The memories will last a lifetime and so will my gratitude.” Roy—you stay classy in Philly. Serena apologizes for making fun of you for being a werewolf. That was rude. Nick Johnson’s contract as the Yankees’ new DH has been finalized. It gives Johnson $5.5 million next season and includes a $5.5 million mutual option with a $250,000 buyout. He can also earn $1 million annually in performance bonuses. Why don’t they have jobs like this posted on Monster.com?
Finally, we hope all of our readers have a healthy, happy holiday!
