King Me

I'm gonna do my best Peter King again.

  1. I think Toronto sportswriters got the best of the BJ Ryan deal. -- Think of all the fellatio jokes they can make for the next 5 years. You can't put a price tag on that.
  2. I think it's funny that all 30 teams in baseball passed on Esteban Loaiza's demands for a 3yr/$20M last year. He had to settle for less than $3M with the Nats (though I believe there was a 2/$10 offer from FLA or somebody else, so maybe he planned on a quick free agency). -- Anyway, I think it's funny that now that Billy Beane is the one who caved to his demands, the sabermetric community is calling it a good move. -- No, a good move is signing Loaiza to a $3M contract, and getting a couple of draft picks for letting him walk.
  3. I think some guy named The Big Nasty is full of crap when he says that he has sources.
  4. I think if the Angels are throwing 5/$65M at Konerko, then Casey Kotchman and Kendry Morales are headed to Boston for Manny Ramirez.
  5. I think the Konerko bidding is going to pick up this week, and we're going to hear a lot more numbers in the 60's.
  6. I think it's pretty sweet (yeah, I said sweet) that the Sox will open the season on national TV. (ESPN2 Sunday, April 2nd to be more specific)
  7. I think the Sox are planning on a Tuesday April 4th ring ceremony, though nothing is set in stone.
  8. I think Bob Sanders had a coming out party last night. -- If I could only find my scouting report from draft day '04 (damn you!), I could prove that I thought he was going to be a force in the NFL.
  9. I think it would be cool to be a scout. -- I was talking to a member here at SSS via AIM the other night, and he (essentially) asked me if I had plans on getting into a baseball front office. I was taken aback at first. Of course I'm not going to head a baseball team. I'm not qualified at all. But then I thought about it some more. What would I be good at within an organization? I think I would make an excellent scout. -- So, on the off chance that someone within the Sox organization (or even one of those other clubs) reads this, and who has read some of my other observations throughout the year, feel free to email me with offers or advice.
  10. I think there is a huge disparity in the number of times, while waiting for real highlights on Sports Center, I've been forced to watch the Tedy Brusci saga or the Charlie-Weis-calls-a-play-for-a-dead-boy piece and the complete lack of coverage of the Michael Irvin hides-his-"friend's"-pipe-from-his-kids-in-plain-view-in-his-car fiasco.
