-The Daily News catches up with Howie Spira. To nobody’s surprise, he’s done little with his life since the Dave Winfield-George Steinbrenner scandal that ended up with him in jail and George suspended from Baseball. Apparently he still blames George Steinbrenner for the fact that he’s a lazy, unemployed scam artist.
-Bill James discusses the Red Sox shift to focusing on defense with old pal Peter Abraham, and on the strides defensive metrics have made in recent years. When Bill James talks, smart people in Baseball listen.
-The Texas Rangers moved another step closer to being sold to the Greenberg group, and Drayton McLane announced that he’s considering selling the Houston Astros to a group of investors. Expect both deals to get done, when an owner announces he’s selling a team it’s a tough thing to step back from. The last thing Bud Selig wants is a losing team with an owner who everyone knows doesn’t want the club. Bud can assemble a group of minority owners to buy most teams, if needed.
-Ouch. Tell us what you really think, Jack Clark. Andy Van Slyke really tears into Big Mac as well. As much as McGwire deserves it, Clark really just comes across sounding angry and bitter.
-WCBS radio’s Tom Kaminski has the latest update in his series of photos of the old Yankee Stadium demolition. It’s been an excruciatingly slow process and it still seems like little has been accomplished over the past 2 years. Shea Stadium went down completely in the off season between 2008/2009, and was even paved over for extra parking by the time the 2009 season began. The fact that (unlike Shea) it’s a densely populated area is likely slowing things down, they were able to pull down entire sections of Shea toward the end.
-Rob Neyer examines all the places Johnny Damon isn’t going. Your guess is as good as mine, but as I posted a while back that it wont be the Yankees. If I had to wager a bet, I’d go with the Nippon Ham Fighters at this point.
-Ever heard of a Yankee blog named Fonzie Forever? Neither had I, until they posted a terrific Top 50 list of Yankee Prospects with realistic projections and outcomes for each player. Give it a look, you’ll get a nice thumbnail sketch of pretty much every player you’ll need to know about heading into next season.
