Okay, so maybe I am somewhat sentimental but after seeing former Beach star Giambi go back to Oakland, made me miss the good old days a little. I am glad to see the power of the 'stache leave NY, because he didn't really do a whole lot for the team. Teixiera is a huge improvement at 1B. At least the Cubbies are being sold to a life long Cub fan who will keep the team going and not sell off the name of the stadium, keeping it called Wrigely Field.
One thing that hasn't seemed to have changed is Man Ram's ego...he and Boras are starting to tick off McCourt by not taking their offer seriously and waiting for something better. The Mets might be looking at making an offer, but nobody seems to want to dish out more money than what he is worth. It's really just a matter of time when we he really starts being Manny again and poisons his new club, like he did in Boston. He should just take LA's offer and not hold out for more, just look at where baseball's other 3 ring circus, Barry Bonds, has been last year...sitting on his couch. No one is worth the media circus and head aches that come along with these two. Look at Boston, they are much better off now with Bay in LF.
