    Happy to tell you my “acting” position ends 11/30, when I return to my day job as deputy GC. But those NU kids–what a bunch of wimps!

    He really has brought dishonor on the team, but I am confident that he will be found not guilty. I myself often have confused Jeffrey Winick’s home for a bank.

    Don’t I know it. It just hurts me so much to say his name….

    Wow….Imagine if I had published my Bombers-themed *Abbey Road *medley (including ditties such as *Mean Mr. Blocker, You Never Trade Me Your Keepers, Here Comes The Dump… *). Jeffrey, your speech ranks with John Belushi’s tirade in *Animal House*.

    I’m diggin’ it.

    Mark, you rock! Or did you order an associate to write it? This one
    belongs in the archives and I suggest we stage a musical with all
    these tunes at year’s end. Maybe we can get Jeffrey to play William F.
    Buckley….

    Jeff, You’re a man of few words, but when they’re spoken most of them are¬†worth admiring.

    Dear Chairman Mark “Bernanke” Blocker:

    With your academic grasp of the numbers, you make interesting but incomplete points. You must consider the athletes’ youth, their potential and recent growth trends. As someone who trumpeted all season long the merits of Tim Beckham, David Price, Joba Chamberlain and Brian Matusz, one would think you of all owners would be somewhat sympathetic to the bumps and bruises that come with talented young players. And with respect to Clay Buchholz, none other than roto expert Jeffrey Winick can attest to his brilliant showing in the just-completed AFL. At 5/y1, he remains a serious candidate for slotting on someone’s roster, if not yours (as does Phil Hughes, 5/y2, well recovered from in-season ailments; as for Boof, I really was kidding, but I appreciate your statistical analysis nonetheless).

    As you know, I am not one for prognostications, but you can take this to the bank: the Rips will finish in the money next year, even if you conduct the draft in an undisclosed location without me.

    Securitized,
    Brad Lee

    Andy!

    While I know my dear friend Richard E. Robbins certainly can fend for himself, particularly as to the likes of you, I for one take umbrage with your backhanded swipe against the Hots.

    What makes you think he’s dumping? Since when does a team with two closers, Konerko, Hafner and a wealth of quality SPs give up as early as June 1? Seems that the K-9 only is marginally better, if at all, than the Crimson Wieners, and they certainly rank equal if not better than the LMC, FBs and BBs. Way too early to discuss Bean Season when it comes to Rich and your remark is insulting to a man of his character and competitive drive.

    Come at me with your your dull blade, if you dare to parry, but at least choose a fair target, like the Nukes or Angries….(as if we don’t know you’re trying in typically transparent fashion to expand the market for Garko, as if he’s the Holy Grail of the Dumpsters–like RER will bite at that sorry bait…).

    Good god, is that damn Super Bowl Shuffle the only song half of you know?
    What bitterly empty lives.

    Look-I’m in last place, so I’m an e-z target. Big deal. My whole life I’ve
    had a bullseye on my back. So to quote a line from Shabes’ fave song, “Hit
    me with your best shot.” Because, and if I may quote a line from Winick’s
    favorite song, “I’m still standing.”

    Now what can I say about this year? I tried a strategy of youngsters and
    aging veterans. The veterans aged quickly and the kids are not alright. So
    what would any team in last place do? The sale’s on, lads.

    That is all, pending an announcement of a trade with Winick. Or Klein. Who
    knows. But don’t worry, Mark B, I won’t be bugging you to trade me
    Brandon McCarthy–you had your chance last year….

    Ciao, brothers!

    Dear Rich:

    I predict the name “Elijah Dukes” will get plenty of air time in ’07 amongst USML owners, aghast at his brilliant baseball abilities.
