Nice day for the Robertson family of Birmingham, Ala. The Mets traded Scott Schoeneweis to Arizona for Connor Robertson. He’s the older brother of Yankees prospect Dave Robertson. If they both make the team, they can share an apartment in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, Scott Proctor was non-tendered by the Dodgers. His elbow, now living in seclusion in Temecula, could not be reached for comment.
Wilson Betemit got $1.3 million from the White Sox, ensuring their doom.
Made these bets today:
UConn at 12-1 for the NCAA title (to have something to root for)
Michigan at 80-1 to win the NCAA title (John Beilein can really coach)
Indians at 22-1 to win the Series (just for kicks)
Braves at 22-1 to win the NL pennant (the Rays of 2009?)
USC -10 in the Rose Bowl (just to win something)
Oklahoma +3 in the BCS final (seems easy)
Panthers 10-1 to win the Super Bowl (best long shot)
It’s a good thing I don’t live here. I’d take up residence at the sports book and bet college hoop games all day. The Yankees went to 6-1 for the Series after getting Sabathia, by the way. Wonder if Burnett will drop it more?
