Dodgers up for auction? We'll see.

Then that happened.

I wonder if Tony LaRussa has early onset Alzheimers or something. He sure was weird during this series. And now he's stepping down.

LaRussa was able to leave on top, has all the money he'll ever need, will immediately get hired by one of the sports networks and maybe most importantly, wasn't looking forward to managing next year without Pujols.

All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusions is called a philosopher.

Yesterday Bob Costas did a 60 minute interview with La Russa on the MLB network. I recommend it.

Pujols to the Angels on a ten year contract. That's an expensive gamble. Halfway through the season, people were asking whether injury would (albeit slightly) depress his market value.

Interesting off season so far.

Very expensive.

Not to mention, 5 yrs / $77.5 for C.J. Wilson.

Oh I missed that. Glad Cashman didn't pay that. Mind you, if he's shopping AJ, as is rumored, we do need a starting pitcher. We might need one anyway, given the improbability of Hughes delivering a full season.

Pujols is going to miss St. Louis. He seems to be the sensitive type who wants a lot of love. That's what he had with the Cardinals. He just traded that for money that he'll never be able to spend. The only saving grace (aside from the mountain of cash) is that he's got a really good manager in Mike Scioscia. I don't think that will be enough to balance out the pressure of having to live up to that big contract.

Even if we had a vacancy at first base, I'd have been worried about the Yankees picking up Pujols for just that reason - as well as the question of how happy he'd be sharing the limelight.

There’s certainly a case for keeping the misleadingly named Fielder as far from fielding as possible.
