THT Daily: Super Bowl hangoverby Bryan Tsao
February 04, 2008
So the Super Bowl was yesterday, and I feel obligated to give at least one related link. There was some cognitive dissonance in rooting for New York to win—aren't they the bad guys? Still, with the Red Sox and Patriots winning World Series' left and right and the Celtics looking strong, it was easy for the neutrals to jump on board the Giants' bandwagon during the game, though the San Diegans had to hold their noses at rooting for Manning. So Poz, don't take this the wrong way, because we love you here at THT, but maybe you should stick to baseball from here on out.
Bedard really traded this time (probably) - It looks like Adam Jones is really taking the physical this time. Camden Chat brings us all the latest.
Santana negotiations - The New York Times gives the inside scoop on the Santana negotiations.
Keep your cool - Beyond the Box Score finds that getting ejected doesn't help win games.
Tejada sets HR record - Miguel Tejada hit two home runs in Dominican team Cibao Eagles' win in the Caribbean World Series yesterday, setting the career home run record in the series with 13.
Fun with PECOTA - Tim Dierkes uses Baseball Prospectus' PECOTA to look at which starters might be able to crack a 4.00 ERA.
Greene puns - The Padres are reportedly close to locking up a two-year, $11 million extension with shortstop Khalil Greene, which would buy out the rest of this arbitration years.
Cardinals to sign Juan Gone - Despite Dan Syzmborski's >apt and hilarious analysis over at BTF, it looks like the Cardinals are actually going to do this. Looks like the Astros are trying to keep up.
