Randomness

  • I thought the World Series was a big disappointment this year. There was little-to-no suspense; I didn't really care if either team won or lost; and it was filled with poor play and little league style mistakes.
  • Steve Stone resigned from the Cubs broadcast booth yesterday. I've always loved Stoney. He adds so much to the broadcast. I think he had a down year, (I've heard him be better before) but he was still a pleasure to listen to when I could catch a Cubs game.

    I heard him on a couple of radio broadcasts today, and he continues to take the high road. Class act, Steve Stone. I wouldn't mind seeing him on the southside in some form next year.
  • Mike Lowell had his option picked up, and his contract guaranteed for three more seasons, all but taking him off the trade block.
  • The Trib had an article today about the Sox financial situation for next season. They said to expect a payroll similar to this past season's. I tend to disagree, as I pointed out in one of the post-season outlook entries.
  • Yesterday, the sox picked up the options of Frank Thomas, Carl Everett, and Shingo Takatsu. All of this should come as no surprise to you if you've been around lately. I boldy predicted as much weeks ago.

    They also declined to pick up Sandy Alomar's option. Hopefully Sandy will be given a job inside the organization.
  • There's not to much action in baseball in the next couple weeks. Teams can negotiate with their own players exclusively until November 12 (or so), at which point those eligible for free agency can negotiate with other teams.

    I figure the Free Agent market to be a slow one. White Sox persona non grata, Scott Boras, represents almost all of the Major Free agents. Among his clients are the top three outfielders, (Beltran, Drew, and Ordonez), the top FA infielder (Beltre), and a collection of Expensive pitching talent (Millwood, Lowe, plus a bunch more I can't think of off the top of my head). The rest of the baseball world is going to wait for the top guys, represented by Boras, to set the market before negotiating with other players. He's gonna be one busy guy.
  • I don't care what you political affiliation is, this coming Tuesday, if you are eligible to vote, get out there and let your voice be heard. This blog has suffered over the past week or so as I commuted to Wisconsin to volunteer for a campaign. I'm headed to Iowa for the weekend, and things should return to normal sometime next week. Vote damnit.
