Chuck Lamar is nuts

1) So Chuck Lamar wanted Hanley Ramirez and Jon Lester, not to mention two Met prospects, for Baez and Huff. How the hell does that work? I said it two days ago, and I'll say it again: that Kazmir fleecing screwed up his brain. Four top level prospects for a second-rate closer and a decent bat? Two years ago he would have traded those two guys away for Kevin Millar, a footrub, and a pirated DVD from Chinatown. My, how times have changed.

2) It's Sunday, and my arthritic shoulder is throbbing, so I'm calling this my off-day. I'm going to curl up on my couch and watch Jon Paplebon mow down the Twins, pop a few Aleves, rehydrate, and await the Resident Female's return. God bless.
