I was going to do this post in haiku form, but for some reason nothing inspired came of it. Maybe I need some caffeine.

  • University of Cincinnati to name baseball stadium after Marge Schott. Schott of course was a little bit crazy, and had a bad habit of dropping N-Bombs at random in public places, but you know. Whatever.

  • Padres winter meetings checklist. We've already been really active. Of the free agents left to be signed, I'm thinking the priorities are Hoffman, Seanez and Sweeney. The rest would be nice, but I won't shed a tear.

  • It's been seven hours and fifteen days.
    Since they took your love away
    I go out every night and sleep all day
    Since they took your love away
    Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
    I can see whomever I choose
    I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
    But nothing
    I said nothing can take away these blues
    `Cause nothing compares
    Nothing compares to you,

  • Yeah, I thought that last bullet point was a little creepy too, but you know. Whatever.

  • The Rule 5 Draft is next week. Among the list of eligible players you'll find a certain Brooks Conrad left unprotected by the NL Champion Houston Astros. If somebody in the Padres wants to take a look at Brooks who is a hell of a player, then that would be awesome. Also, I would so totally be able to get an interview with him for Gaslamp Ball cause he's my brother-in-law and we chat regularly about our fantasy football teams. Just saying.
