One month to go

Hard to believe it's barely a month until spring training starts...

The grapevine is still saying the Yankees want to sign the Rocket. I'm not thrilled at the idea, to tell you the truth. I fear Clemens is over the hill. He can't go a whole season any more, and he hasn't been great in the post-season lately. Then there's the whole steroid thing. I suspect both Andy and the Rocket are going to find out you can't go home again.

OTOH, you can't blame the Yanks for trying. It's not like there's a lot else out there.

Meanwhile, the Reds have signed catcher David Ross, who Wally Pipped Jason LaRue last season.

From the Seattle Times:

Good news for the Cincinnati Reds.

Ken Griffey Jr.'s agent announced that the outfielder's broken hand should be healed in time for him to be injured again in spring training.


Bronson Arroyo was back in the Boston area last weekend, doing a concert. The Boston Globe thinks he shouldn't quit his day job.

And Richard Linklater, best known for the film Dazed and Confused, is working on a baseball documentary. He'll be following the t.u. baseball team, hoping to see them win a consecutive national championship. Linklater is a graduate of and former baseball player for Bellaire High, Bubba's alma mater.

Linkater's footage was filmed in 2006, when T.U. was eliminated in the 1st round by Stanford. I bet it never is released.

Ouch. That would be a lot of work down the toilet. I can't believe he wouldn't make something with the footage. Maybe not the story he originally wanted to tell, but something.
