The Rangers Sound Like Foster Children

Well.  That was depressing.

First the earthquake and tsunamis.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.

And then this article.

David Murphy: “I know for the time Chuck was here, he was an awesome guy. He seemed like he was steering in the right direction… it has been a constant revolving door around here. We’re used to people coming and going.”

Ian Kinsler: “Chuck was a great guy from the times that I talked to him. It seemed like he had some good ideas.  Other than that, I don’t know what happened.”

Michael Young: “I like Chuck.  Chuck is a good guy. Apart from that I don’t have anything to say.”

Jon Daniels: “Nothing has changed.”

Oh.

We all like Chuck.

Chuck is a great guy.

We all have nothing else to say.

He was the coolest CEO around.  He answered his fans on Twitter.  Heck, he had a Twitter at all.

But we are used to people coming and going.

And we have nothing else to say.

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.
