Rumours swirling it is the Rangers, not the Blue Jays with the Darvish bid. Wouldn't surprise me - seems like every free agent is rumoured to be 'on' Toronto these days, with named sources never actually confirming that, and Toronto not getting anyone. No big deal, just makes you wonder how many of these are actual inside sources, and how many are just random execs rambling about possibilities.Darvish and Pujols head to the AL West - Texas and LAA both with big new TV revenues. Rangers and Angels becoming the new Red Sox and Yankees?
Long signatures are really annoying.

Speaking of which, Jesus I'm glad that Pujols didn't go to the Yankees.
Karl: She was a bit -- what's the word that you can use, cuz I don't wanna offend anyone?
Steve: Was she a homeless person?
Karl: Yeah but sort of mental homeless.

I don't know...in three years we'll be talking about how his contract is a huge drain on his team.

Oh, ha, that was pretty stupid. I was thinking about the Rangers and Darvish and looked up the wrong team.The Angels TV deal is $3b. But I think that one starts right away.Anyway, the AL West is flush with cash. Moneyball.

The opening day payroll list was released recently. My friend asked me if I wanted to make a prop bet. He said he'd take the top 10 teams in payroll and I'd get the bottom 20 to win the WS. After some negotiating, I've got 21 teams. How big of a dog do we think I am?

Yeah, and I found that there have been 6 of the past 11 WS that haven't even included a team in the top 9.

This just doesn't make much sense to me. He doesn't look like a steroid freak, and his numbers don't support it either. We'll see, I guess.
Vindication! Ryan Braun won his appeal and won't be suspended. Edit: Maybe.Tom ‏ @HaudricourtPlayers union officially announces that Braun won appeal, saying parties agreed to announce it despite usually confidential process.Tom ‏ @HaudricourtI've been told AP is reporting Braun lost his appeal. Believe me, Braun won.2nd Edit: The best thing about Twitter reporting and the race to be first is all the wrong reports that come out. 3rd Edit: I might've used the word "best" incorrectly in the above statement.4th! Edit: MLB issued a statement: "...Major League Baseball vehemently disagrees with the decision rendered today by arbitrator Shyam Das."That's an interesting stance to take since it's probably a good thing for the league that the reigning MVP isn't getting suspended. I'm interested to find out the details of all this.
