Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Ready for some baseball

Not much news on the Yankees front. Cashman has been talking tough, saying he won't pursue A-Rod if he becomes a free agent, and that Joba will be the closer if Mo doesn't come back. I think it's just bluster. He's positioning himself for the negotiations to come.

The Reds DFA'd Jason Ellison, Kirk Saarloos, and Mark Bellhorn. They cleared waivers, refused minor league assignments, and became free agents. Not really surprising.

And it's Colorado vs. Arizona in a southwest battle tonight. Not a particularly compelling game for New Yorkers, or for most of the country, really. But after a couple of days with no games, and the long, cold baseball-less winter looming, I'm looking forward to the game more than I expected.

I stopped at the grocery store after work today. The cashier was having some computer problems or something; the line was very slow. So I ended up studying other people's groceries while waiting in line. (Beats reading those tabloid headlines about Britney on suicide watch! or J-Lo pregnant!)

The woman in front of me was obviously on a diet. She had piles of SlimFast, and some fresh fruit.

The woman in back of me was not on a diet. She had two bags of heat-and-serve Buffalo wings, a jar of blue cheese dressing, and a gigantic can of beer. Obviously preparing for the game tonight!

Cashman sucks donkey balls. I'm tired of his crap. He's the real problem.

Don Zimmer blames Cashman for the Yankees' failures. He's been pretty vocal about it.

Me, I don't know. It's hard to tell which were his moves, and which were handed down from above, or from Tampa.
