News N' Notes

So, for the record, I love Fridays. Today in particular.

Anyway, in case you've missed it, some news and notes from around the league:

Radomski avoids prison time. Moral of the story: It's okay to commit crime, as long as you rat out your accomplices, especially if your accomplices are from New York. Sam Waterson's Law and Order universe, this is not.

Santana would get to choose whether or not to exercise 2014 option. Isn't this a fancy way of saying that Santana's now got an opt-out clause? Have the Mets learned nothing re: A-Rod? I mean, I know Santana's agent is not Boras, but still, that can't be the smartest move the Mets have ever made.

Curt Schilling has shoulder injury and disagrees with team over surgery/no surgery. All that blogging must have taken a toll. Guess it's on the list of verboten off-season activities such as motorcycle riding and pick up basketball...

FIVE days to go.


  1. Some teams never learn I guess. Like you said, after A-Rod...come on!
    I really like the 5 days part.
    How do you have the time; to go to classes, have a blog, post on LaHud, write your paper, etc.?
    I am back home in NY again, I was going to head to Tampa. One of the good old boys passed on...the bad part is, we were to stay on his boat.
    Needless to say, we will not be going to Tampa. Oh well next year? 27/08

  2. old ranger:

    I'm not really sure how I'm managing it, just kind of taking it day by day.

    Sorry to hear about your friend, though :( My condolence

  3. I don't get the Radomski deal. He was a drug dealer. He ratted out his customers, but I haven't heard a thing that he helped identify who was manufacturing the 'roids and supplying him. Isn't that the classic way to get leniency, by ratting out those who are closer to the top of the chain?
