Just a couple of short entries - 30 second each on a couple of interesting lifers jumping ship and moving to different teams -
This is actually a really good signing for the Brewers. It makes their bullpen suck less and I do not look forward to ninth innings vs the Boo-Hoo Crew. What I DO look forward to is innings 1-8. :D
Somltz is moving on to the Red Sox. Smoltz has been with the Braves longer than Atlanta practically, but the Red Sox topped the Braves offer by "a couple of million". Seriously? You made 14 mil last year. I said it about Dempster before we resigned - what can you do with 5.5 that you can't with 3.5, when you made 14 mil the year before? it's a difference between 19.5 and 17.5.
Seriously Smoltz. You've got like fumes left in the gas tank, and you're going to piss off an entire city for 2 mil? A-hole.
