AP reporting that Jorge has agreed to a 4 year, $52 million deal. Wow.
Hopefully they have some spare change in the cushions left to sign Jose Molina.
Hear that silence so loud? Its the Mo Rivera camp. Bitter about not getting a new extension prior to the start of the '07 season, he will be testing the open market. I have a sinking feeling he's going to be punching a ticket to Dodgerland.
Is anyone other than me getting tired of Jeter trying to play the role of Joe DiMaggio?
NY Giants - Eli Manning is one of the best QBs in the league for quarters 1 & 2. Problem is, when the game tempo picks up in the 2nd half, he's still in that slow Southern drawl speed. I mean, who else finds a way to get multiple delay of game penalties running the "hurry up" offense? Horrible.
D3 Football - St. John Fisher earns its third NCAA bid in 5 years securing a 2nd seed in the Eastern Regional bracket. The big story is the NCAA moving the Teflon, 8-time champion, Mt. Union Raiders into the Eastern Region from its usual home in the North - not because the selection committee wanted to mix up the competition for the defending champ (they roll everyone in their league by an average score of 55-2), but because the NCAA didn't feel that there was a team in the East worthy of a #1 seed. . . nice. Fisher has the streaking Hobart Statesman in the first round, and Mt. Union gets Ithaca. I don't know if Mt. Union will get beat, allegedly this is their best team ever. One thing I do know is that there is no way they walk through the East the way they do to the North.
Prediction: The top two seeds have the toughest fights in the East bracket. Fisher edges Hobart 31 - 28, and Mt. Union gets introduced to the East by narrowly beating Ithaca 24-22.
