My Morning In Exile

Things I wrote while wondering whether I am the only attorney in Columbus, Ohio who is listening to “Protect Ya Neck” on his iPod right now. Maybe this guy is . . .

  • Jamie McCourt should sue Frank. Not for ownership of the team, but for sexual harassment. “He fired me as soon as we stopped sleeping together, your honor . . .” Couldn’t make this business any crazier.
  • Bobby Valentine pulls off the greatest job interview since Spud’s went on about getting his foot in the door and “showin’ initiative and that like” in “Trainspotting.”
  • MLB wants better umps in the World Series. MLB assigns Joe West to the World Series. These things do not go together.
  • Yesterday Matt Holliday pretended that he wanted to go to the Yankees in order to drive his price up. Today the Yankees pretend they’re not interested in Holliday to drive his price down. Jesus, will you two kiss each other already?
  • Should the Royals trade Joakim Soria?
  • Should the Blue Jays have traded for David Wright?
  • That’s right: I’m all OVER 16 year-old hip-hop. Next year I may listen to some new stuff by some guy called the Notorious R.B.I or whatever his name is . . .

      Holliday, Halladay, the time is coming- LET’S DO TWO!!!!!
      I have NO IDEA what either the lawyer or music stuff means, other than Notorious RBI, who I don’t see around anymore. You must be the hit at the bar, Craig.

      If the Dodgers/McCourt story becomes a movie it’s a good bet that Kevin Costner and Rene Russo would star as Frank and Jamie.

      I love the NBC commenter confusing Roy and Matt. But any AL team who bids on Holliday better understand what they are getting. Just call anyone who watched Oakland play April through June this year.

      Now, back to my gin and juice.

      Do the Mets need a closer? I’m sure Moore would be willing to trade Soria straight up for Franceour.

      That’s assuming Franceour would be willing to sign a 4-year extension at $15 mil per. He’s obviously the right-handed power hitter the Royals need.

      And he was a Brave, which means he’s overqualfied?

      Excuse me while I go beat my head against the wall.

      Oh, I know he is. I actually used to work with him. He’s the baddest mofo who every represented rural electrical cooperatives.

      Is it my imagination or is ShysterBall being tapped by MLB spies?  I swear the ad in the left margin is for Harrah’s Kansas City (rates from $59/night) Is this because of my Joba jibe from this morning?  Honest, I just wanted him in the Dipsy Dumpster for a while, and Hal needn’t think I will finance that.

      Off to gin and juice with APBA guy.
