Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Jason Varitek has re-signed with the Red Sox for $2 million with $300,000 in incentives. This was a signing that you could see coming a mile away. Varitek has said that he doesn't want to play anywhere else (even though he would have been a great fit with the Dodgers) and Boston is very thin at catcher now that Victor Martinez has moved on. I'm OK with a platoon of Jarrod Saltalamachia and Varitek (who could be Becketts personal catcher and start against some lefties)... This joke made me think of another one - an optimist sees a glass as half full, a pessimist sees a glass as half empty, an engineer sees a glass as twice as big as it needs to be... If I was elected President - I'd have Hail to the Chief replaced with Carmina Burana... I do have to admit that going "cheap" at catcher does give off a Bronson Arroyo for Wily Mo Pena type feel for me. That thought is also a good reminder that Theo Epstein sometimes makes mistakes.... A galactic Lemur who craps arsenic and farts thunder would make an awesome cartoon. Sort of like Sponge Bob in space... Cool - All Mad magazine covers 1952-2010... I vow never to drink Ciroc faux vodka just because of those awful Diddy commercials. Awful!... Mentioning without commenting - LPGA drops 'female at birth' clause for members...
