Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Zack Greinke has changed agents and is requesting to be traded. The Rangers seem to be the favorite to land him but you know the Yankees will put on a full court press since they are in desperationland. FWIW - Greinke was 0-2 in 3 starts with an 8.82 ERA at old Yankee Stadium. Makes you wonder whether it was the Yankees or the city?... The world would have been a much better place if John Wooden started a religion instead of L. Ron Hubbard... Does the Clash lyric "He who f*cks nuns will later join the church" explain the Red Sox signing of Carl Crawford?... Just as an FYI - "Britney Spears" is an anagram for “Presbyterians”.... I could see the Yankees spending for Rafael Soriano to be set up guy and as insurance for Mo Rivera especially given weakness of their rotation... Heh heh - great line by Steve Rushin, "In span of 12 days, McRib and McNabb both discontinued"... Can you imagine the number of HR that free agent Jim Thome could hit for the Rangers playing half his games in Arlington? Sure he's slowed some but for his career - Thome has an 1.025 OPS with 15 HR in 206 AB (that's a HR every 13.7 AB)... Interesting fact pointed out by Peter Gammons - Brandon Weeden, the Oklahoma State starting QB was once traded by the Yankees for Kevin Brown...
