Nothing better than nursing a head cold while the GM of your home team act like he's on valium. It just keeps getting better doesn't it? Reportedly the Red Sox ,my original home town team and my 2nd favorite team, but on a rapidly rising trajectory to #1, have a deal in place to deal nomar to Chicago for Maglio Ordonez. Nomar would then reportedly go to either the Dogers or Angels.

The Red Sox are involved in one of the most amazing makeovers of a ALCS finalist of all time. The audacity of their owner hiring a 28 year old GM with no "baseball" experience. I'm really glad we got one of those old fashioned family patriarchies instead. Can you just hear the sarcasm dripping off my keyboard? I may need a sponge to soak it up.

If Ordonez and Nomar are both on the market the M's should have been in the middle of negotiations to get them.

Omar failed his physical. The cynic in me thinks that he actually failed it, the optimist is hoping that someone got into Bavasi's office, closed the door and smacked him upside the head with a copy of Baseball Prospectus, then proceeded to choke some sense into him. Judging from excerpts of his last interview, that didn't happen.

Bavasi's answer to making the M's a playoff contender....The regulars need to play better than they did last year. That's a plan isn't it? Just the Mariners email list (link on the right) to read some great discussion on the hot stove.
