Wells and Pavano have made their decisions and frankly I'm surprised on both accounts.

I didn't think Pavano was really seriously considering Bronx Circus '04, nor did it ever cross my mind that Wells would end up warming up Garces's old stool at the Cask N' Flagon.

Apparently Pavano talked at great length with Joe Torre, who convinced him that New York was the place for him.

Well, I guess there IS a reason that the Yanks still haven't officially announced the contract for Wright...

    "Their physicals are ridiculously thorough," said one agent who has had clients play for the Yankees. "It's everything you could possibly imagine and more."



    One agent described the Yankees' physicals as "intense," and said they can include stress tests, EKG exams, blood tests, MRIs, X-rays and blood pressure readings. Teams can also request any past medical exams - previous MRIs or surgery records, for example - and while agents are not required to turn them over, teams would be particularly leery of any player that refused.


Really damages the Yanks case for voiding Giambi's contract, if they haven't given up on that by now.

Also, Wright took a second physical and passed.

The Jays signed someone? Good lord.

This puts Hinske either in no man's land (my preference) or at first base. I'd much rather see Eric Crozier get the chance to play every day, since I've heard good things about his potential.

The rumoured Rios for Nick Johnson deal would be STUPID STUPID STUPID. Rios is supposed to be the future, not some generic, oft-injured Moneyball jabronie.

Toronto still needs a lot of pitching help before they can even think about contending, though.



I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: while you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits." --- President Jed Bartlett, The West Wing

The Yanks reportedly just reached an agreement on a 2-year deal with Korean lefty reliever Koo Dae-Sung (times.hankooki.com). I don't know anything about the guy except that he throws left handed, and that he supposedly has a unique delivery that makes his stuff pretty filthy to left-handed batters.

Anyone know anything about this guy?
