Was just thinking about what the 9th inning proposal would do to closer values ...

no worries Slyke, I'd take Kuhn over Manfred too. Hell, I'd take Paul Giamatti over Manfred.

Well, the dam has definitely broken on free agent signings.

Moose looks hosed. No real landing spot with that pick attached.

Arrietta will probably have to take a front-loaded shorter deal as well.

I suspected that was intended in the way that you'll hear many people "longing" for the good old days of President GW Bush.

I was being sarcastic with Kuhn, Geoff.

Maybe a feeble attempt at humor on my part.

Kuhn was a schmuck. The guy we want is A. Bartlett Giamatti.

I am not a Manfred guy, and I listened to him today on The Michael Kay Show and this obviously won't happen.

But Manfred still balks at the questions about the state of baseball in Florida.

Geez...do we long for the days of Bowie Kuhn?

Another non-Boras client (Darvish) signs.  It does seem like it may be a Boras issue.  But he's doing his job the best he can.  If there isn't movement on Arrietta now that he is the clear #1 then again, I think we need to look at the agent.
