Great Links to Articles
Thanks to all those who have commented on my past articles. Hope you are enjoying reading them, as much as I am writing them.
Unfortunately, I have a lot of work to do the next few days, so I don't have an article of my own for you. I do have 4 great articles that you should read!!
Peter Gammons - has a great article on the Pedro signing. A must read
Bill Simmons A MUST READ ARTICLE for any sox fan. I have bookmarked this article and will read it again and again. A quote from the article, " The Red Sox won the World Series. Seven words that changed my life. Yes, I'm handling it fine."
Tom Verducci a great article. wrap up from the winter meetings with winners and losers. sox were winners, and yanks were losers. an interesting tidbit from the article,
The reliever called the Cubs and offered to pitch for them for the minimum salary, $312,000. The Cubs inexplicably had to think about it. In the meantime, the Red Sox invited him to Boston, flew him in first class, decorated his hotel room with world championship Red Sox pennants and balloons and a bucket of locally brewed beer on ice. They also flew in manager Terry Francona to meet him. Mantei immediately signed for $750,000."
Finally and surely not least the Sox have signed Edgar Renteria to a 4 year 40 million dollar contract with a team option for a 5th year. Welcome aboard Edgar!!!
I am hoping to have a Edgar vs. OC article up sometime this weekend. It will be a very much stats oriented article. Look for that by the end of the weekend if not sooner. I'll try to be back tomorrow with a link oriented article like this.
enjoy the articles!!!!!!
