Baseball is a Business. Rinse and Repeat. 2.0

We are rinsing and repeating today because Eugenio Velez signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers.  As I said before, I am hoping he will get more play time and a legitimate chance, which the Giants just aren’t able to offer him right now.  I wish he wasn’t going to be donning Dodger blue, but if he takes a little play time from Matt Kemp I won’t be at all adverse to that.  There is a bright side to everything.

Meanwhile Cliffy is said to have signed a deal with the Phillies.  As of this writing, the number of years and amount of money is not confirmed, though “sources” say it’s five years, $100 million.  So he wasn’t going after that endlessly long contract after all.  Interesting and refreshing.   I’ll write more when I know more but for now I just have one other refreshing thing to share:  yesterday, I mentioned Cliff Lee and the person I was talking to said, “Cliff who?”  Some days- especially media circus days- I just love those non baseball fans.  And yeah.  This all surprised me too. 

Brian Cashman/Hank Steinbrenner/Jon Daniels/Nolan Ryan/Chuck Greenberg will probably sleep better tonight, now that it’s all over.  As well as Cliff himself.  I think everyone involved in this is glad it’s over. 

Good night, blogsphere.
