The links and such on the side of the page have gotten a little stale. I am going to take the opportunity today to spruce them up a little bit.

Maybe It's Not So Crazy

Ok, so the 5-year/$70 million contract for JD Drew still seems insane to me. Props to him for opting out of the 3-year/$33 million the Dodgers owed him. He's a lot richer for that decision.

But the deal seems a lot more sane when you consider the 6-year/$100 million contract that Carlos Lee received from the Astros.

I know this isn't how the contract will be paid, but pretend that Lee gets paid like JD Drew for the first 5 years. That means the 6th year -- when Lee will be more qualified to play d-line for the Texans than outfield for the Astros -- is effectively worth $30 million. That's insane.

And don't even get me started on the Gil Meche contract. Wow.

Science Fair

1 - What did we do before YouTube? Seriously, I don't know how we existed.
2 - I want to help a kid with a science fair experiment this year.
