do you think we could send wily mo down to texas to, like, deliver kason?

6 Thoughts a Little More Than One Hour After the Trade Deadline Dust Has Settled

1. The Metro article on the ten-year anniversary of the trade that brought Derek Lowe and Oh Captain Comma My Captain Jason Varitek to the Red Sox included
this amazing photograph of 25 year old Tek, who, minus the facial hair, doesn't really look that different than 35 year old Tek. You kind of get the impression that Tek came out of the womb looking about 32, and, of course, telling the obstetrician to get his ass down to first base.

2. Honestly, I would have been fine had the Sox made no deals at all, because the deals that I really want to make at the deadline are always things like "David Ortiz circa 2007 for David Ortiz circa 2005" or "Historic 2nd Half Mike Lowell for Historic 1st Half Mike Lowell." But since John Henry refuses to spend a few of his many millions on the Boston Red Sox Official Delorean, well.

3. That said, do you think Jonathan Papelbon is intimidated by the fact that glasses-wearing Eric Gagne bears a much stronger resemblance to Rick Vaughn? Because I'm thinking yes.

4. I'm much more torn up about beloved Typo's exit than I would have anticipated three months ago! Godspeed to you, little Typo. You were probably never going to find an everyday spot in our rotation, so I wish luck to you in Texas, where they appear to need all the help they can get.

5. Obviously, though, the deadline trade that upsets me the most is Scott Proctor to the Dogers. Now if I happen to glance at the ESPN.com scoreboard and see that the Yankees are down between four and six runs in the eighth inning, it's totally up to Kyle Farnsworth to blow the lead! Still, I have to imagine he's up to the task.

6. While on the phone with Katie, I said, "Do you have anything to add about the trade deadline?" And she said, "Not really. The usual." And I said, "Matt Clement?" And she said, "Bucket of balls, your mom, a cup of coffee. Change for a cup of coffee. That dead rat I saw in the street on my way to work today. They're all interchangeable."

But it's sad for ME. I now have some darned Dodger on my team instead of a Red Sox and this will mean fewer Ws! Granted, I hate the stat, but Yahoo! counts it. Siiiiigh.

At least the Tigers didn't get Farnsworth. I mean, besides his awesome stats in baseball smackdown brawls, we have enough problems in our bullpen.

yeah, i can't see pr0f3ss0r_f4rnsw0rth being a benefit to ANY team except, well, mine.

a) i had the wrong team for poor Typo.

b) oh, today's Dugout! Makes Gagne sound like FUN.

c) jebus, i'd like today's games to be ... BETTER.

The best part of the trading deadline is that now Typo is pitching to Salty.

After Tek was delivered and the obstetrician slapped him, he was all like "C'mon dude, we don't throw at .260 hitters."

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
