Today at THT

I didn’t watch a single down of Florida-Oklahoma last night and I don’t regret it for a second.

  • Craig Brown breaks down the Cubs’ signing of Milton Bradley. His prediction: a lot of time on the DL. Brown is too much of a gentleman to make the companion prediction of a Bradley meltdown when some Chicago reporter asks him why he’s spending so much time on the DL.
  • In This Annotated Week in Baseball History, Richard Barbieri uses the pretext of Baltimore’s failure to sign Aaron Sele in 2000 to review Peter Angelos’ tenure as the Orioles’ owner. He’s the worst thing to happen to Charm City since Callie Thorne, John Seda, and Michael Michele were added to the cast of “Homicide.”
  • Over at Fantasy Focus, Derek Carty looks at the fantasy fallout of Trevor Hoffman signing with the Brewers. In addition to the pitching, I think we can expect a lot of Midwesterners to get the vapors when they hear “Hells Bells” playing. Also, Chris Neault warns fantasy owners of the injury risks presented by Brad Penny, Carlo Pavano, and Milton Bradley. Unfortunately, the owners of the Red Sox, Indians, and Cubs were not similarly warned.

    I’ve got some stuff to do today, so it may be slower around these parts than usual. As such, let’s treat class today as a study hall, OK?

      Solid Homicide reference—though I’m thinking the writers have to come in for some blame for the fall-off in the final seasons, too, no?

      The only time I watched the BCS game was when the Office or 30 Rock were on their seemingly 10 minute commercial breaks.  I just couldn’t get into it.  It kills me that not only is the game (and BCS system) a total sham, but the championship game is a week after New Years Day!  I can get into games on the 2nd, but the 8th?  By then, I’ve shifted my college sports attention completely to college basketball.

      By the way, I know I’m not the only one here, but I can’t wait until baseball season.
