Welcome to one of the slowest days in baseball. Everyone who makes news and everyone who writes news is either on a plane or waiting to takeoff. Amazingly, I found some stuff to blog about this morning:

Pedro to Philly. I predict that the hype of this move will outweigh the competitive impact of this move by a factor of about a zillion.

Stephen Strasburg: “I haven’t heard from the Nationals.” Also, I offer some negotiating advice for Mike Rizzo.
Fred Wilpon was bilked out of way more money than anyone thought. Anyone except Larry King, anyway. And speaking of Larry King: Say what you want about your other vegetables, but in my book, nothing beats asparagus . . . What ever happened to variety shows? Flip Wilson, now there was an entertainer . . . Got a pair of black brogues yesterday, and I feel like a million bucks . . . Caller, do you have a question for Dane Cook about the hostage crisis? . . . Call me crazy, but I’ve been putting skim milk in my coffee for a year now, and I can’t notice the difference . . .
