It sounds like Andy Pettitte is serious about retirement. Jorge Posada said so yesterday and Andy’s father went into even more detail to the Times.
If that’s the case, you have to think it would increase Brian Cashman’s desire to get Johan Santana. Not only would the Yankees need a front-line starter, left-handers are so valuable at Yankee Stadium.
Feel free to debate the merits of trading for Santana all day. But I won’t be around. I’m finishing up vacation and have some family in the city for the weekend. I’ll be leaving for Nashville on Sunday and will start blogging from the Winter Meetings that night.
If you missed the video of Tony La Russa getting pinched for DWI, here it is. It’s not pretty.
Thanks to the NFL Network, all sorts of bars must have made money last night. Some that didn’t even intend to.
I caught the Packers-Cowboys game at the bar of the Legal Seafood restaurant in my neighborhood. Hanging with a buddy, we were having a drink and watching the game when this Packers fan at the end of the bar started yelling at the TV on every play like he was sitting at Lambeau Field.
Now Legal is a classy place, not a sports bar. But it was late and the manager on duty was too nice a guy to tell the Cheesehead to pipe down. After a while, it got kind of comical. This guy was literally screaming at the television and cursing T.O.
“Come back next week,” the manager said with a laugh. “We’ll have peanuts on the bar and 10 cent drafts.”
