The World's Most Expensive Bug Spray

If anyone's is having technical difficulties, and has been since yesterday afternoon. Don't worry, I haven't lost interest. I am still maintaining and updating the site, and I am paid up on the domain registration and hosting. But my web host seems to be having some kind of technical problem. I e-mailed her. She usually gets back to me in minutes, but it's been several hours now with no reply. I hope she's all right.

The hot stove is cooking away...

Hawkins is now a done deal, pending a physical.

There's some talk about Moose being traded to the Phillies. He's from Pennsylvania, and he wants to start, so this might be a good deal for all concerned, if it happens.

Reds fans are all excited because someone in the Reds organization said the Reds have a "75%" chance of trading for Erik Bedard. It would probably mean giving up Homer Bailey (who is their Phil Hughes), plus Hamilton and/or Votto. But the Reds want to win now, if the Cordero signing is any indication.

Bedard is a stud. (Though Bubba has a .667 average against him. ;-) The Yankees would probably love to have him, but the Orioles don't want to trade him within the division.

Remember that can of bug spray was auctioning off? It was used on Joba Chamberlain during that horrible game in Cleveland (the mistake by the lake, indeed). Well, someone paid $673 for it. That's gotta be the world's most expensive can of bug spray.

Oh, and for whoever asked about the 60-day DL...there is no DL in the off-season. If you want to keep a player, you put him on the 40-man roster. It doesn't matter if he can't play, since there are no games.

No one DFA'd today? Amazing.
