Seattle makes no deals other than Rey Sanches.

Oakland gets Jose Guillen.

Boston gets 4 different pitchers (Kim, Williamson, Sauerbach, and now Suppan).

The Yankees get a decent Dave DeLucci, and now Aaron Boone.

Fucking management. Spend some of that fucking Nintendo money.

He's not called "Stand" Pat Gillick fer nuthin.

I saw where Jeff Nelson was openly critical of Seattle management for not going out and getting anyone. It was a pretty nasty interview with him, and I can't imagine the atmosphere in the clubhouse is all that great right now.

I also heard that the Yanks blocked a deal that would have sent A. Boone to the M's and Freddy Garcia to the BoSox (not sure about the rest of the deal). One more reason I hate the Yankees, as the Boones in the same infield would have been pretty cool.

How could they have blocked the deal before the waiver deadline?



The ghost of a steam train - echoes down my track
It's at the moment bound for nowhere -
just going round and round
Playground kids and creaking swings -
lost laughter in the breeze
I could go on for hours and I probably will -
but I'd sooner put some joy back
In this town called malice

I think they dropped out of a potential 4-team deal to snatch Boone directly...

Maybe Gillick didn't make a deal because he thinks his team is good enough as it is. Hell, is Jose Guillen really going to push Oakland over the top? The rest of their lineup is still pretty weak.



All right, I'm enjoying Rhyno's "man-beast" gimmick: He keeps his hair long, wears full-body wrestling tights with a big "R" on the back and uses the "Rhino Gore" as his finishing move. Can't you imagine him watching the Discovery Channel one day while tossing around possible gimmicks and having one of those "Hey, wait a second!" epiphanies during a rhino segment?

To spruce things up, the WWF should give Undertaker and Kane last names -- like Undertaker and Kane O'Brien, the O'Brien Brothers -- just for comedy's sake. Hopefully the door's still open.

RVD is approaching the always-exciting "The crowd loves him, but he's not getting a major push yet" phase which helps makes wrestling so much fun. It only happens once every few years -- Stone Cold in '96, The Rock in '98, Shawn Michaels in '93 and so on. -- ESPN's Bill Simmons back in 2001

Supposedly Gillick wanted to get A. Boone but the Reds, still pissed about the whole post-Griffey-trade saga and bitter because the guy is always hurt and bitching (like that's the M's fault) wouldn't even return his calls. Supposedly he was going to offer Garcia for Boone.

I think it's a little too early to be all pissed off, myself. There should be plenty of guys who pass through waivers that get dealt in August.

Tim Kurkijan totally turned me off to him. He's on KJR every Tuesday and he said (paraphrasing) "I just don't think Tony Batista is the kind of player who helps you win championships. He's a nice player, but if he's the best the Mariners can get they should just stick with Cirillo."

He's not anything special. The only value he brings is his pop. He doesn't hit for avergae, his defense sucks, and he seems to half-ass it most of the time. I'd give him up for a bag of baseballs and a cheesesteak at this point.

Bag of baseballs and a cheesesteak might be to much. Any interest in Ramiro Mendoza and Jeremy Giambi for him though?

That's all well and good, but we've got Mueller at 3B, Nomar at SS... so what do we do with him? Do the Bosox already have a batboy?
