Baseball Withdrawal

It's not even mid-November and I'm already freaking out because there's no baseball. Between the mid-term elections, stupid game shows and the 1-4 Sonics, it hasn't been a good start to the off season. Finding out that the Mariners decided not to go after Matsuzaka-san didn't help matters either.

There have been lots of posts in the blog-o-sphere concerning roster construction for the 2007 campaign. Some have been pretty good (Nomar for DH) and others not so good (Adam Eaton). Mr. Bavasi certainly has a daunting task in front of him. One more losing season is not an option - he is going to have to put the pieces in place for a successful season or the sky will certainly put a bump on his noggin.

Will try to post from time to time, but some issues at home will prevent more than an occasional outburst for the next several months. Hopefully by the time 2007 rolls around, there will be some good news to talk about.

Sad to say that even Adam Eaton might look good next year what with the going price of pitchers in this market. Gil Meche at 9 mil per year and a 4 year contract??? One thing about being a M's fan is that you learn to roll with the punches, problem is that we've had one too many to the head. We'll pray for the best.
