Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Over the years I've become less and less interested in the MLB Hot Stove off-season. Not sure if it's me getting older or the MLB product getting shittier... 15-years ago the New York Times actually had the headline,"Can Angelina Jolie Really Save the World?" And it was in the effing Business section (in case you were wondering if the NYT has always been trash)...  Speaking of the MLB Hot Stove - lots of rumors of the Red Sox looking to trade Andrew Benintendi who listed Hall of Famer Dave Winfield as the most similar player when Benny was age 22 but now lists below average career hitter Darin Erstad as his most similar age 25 comp... Fact that may only interest me - the letter "M" comes from a pre-Canaanite hieroglyph pronounced "mem" meaning water and shaped like waves...  Albert Pujols turned 41 on Saturday. He has one year left on his contract and will be paid $30 million for the 2021 season. After that he has a 10-year personal services contract that will pay him $10 million a year. America - what a country!... This is mean...  


  1. NY Times always has been a trash outfit. The home paper of Walter Duranty, was huge fan of Stalin. Never mind those millions killed Joe is a good guy. The paper is total crap always has been.

  2. And their sports section sucks.
