First. Junior and I took our yearly trek to the mall Saturday morning. It wasn't that bad. Well, it was a little overwhelming at first -- so we headed straight to the food court. Then we hit about four stores like nobody's business and got all of our shopping done. Even the traffic jam getting out of the mall war zone didn't diminish my enthusiasm for having that over with.
Question. If the Royals signed Old Pudge and Bedard and found a decent young centerfielder with promise somehwere, would you consider this off-season a success?
My answer: That depends. If they really do non-tender Jacobs and Buck and if they can figure out some way to get rid of Guillen, then yes.
Question No. 2: Would you rather trade with the Mets or the Cubs?
Dayton's answer: That depends. Which team has the most players who were in the Atlanta organization at one point?
Question No. 3: What's the difference between a golf ball and a Cadillac Escalade?
Tiger's answer: I can drive a golf ball 400 yards.
P.S. Sounds like Dayton did a good job in signing this Cuban pitcher kid.
