After watching four teams advance to their respective conference finals in the NFL and Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes (can he just host ALL awards shows, please?)…it finally occurred to me. We are officially well into the new year.
So what else is going on in this, the third week of 2011? Tony Arnoldine is dropping links!
Albert Pujols is giving the Cardinals an ultimatum. But the birds can’t really let him get away can they?
The A’s are close to signing Brian Fuentes, according to sources.
Baseball Analysts compare Bobby Jenks and Kyle Farnsworth, two relievers who have new homes. Farnsworth’s agent somehow persuaded the Rays to give him $3.5 million for one year.
The Rangers and Angels are among the lead suitors for Manny Ramirez now that Jim Thome is off the market. I keep scratching my head seeing the Rangers tied to all these DH types, when they just pushed Michael Young to that spot.
When you’re the Mets, potentially signing Willie Harris to a minor league deal is big happenings.
With Rafael Soriano in the fold, the Yankees might consider trading Joba Chamberlain for a starter, according to Jon Heyman.
And since I mentioned it off the top…here’s the video of Gervais’ opening monologue from Sunday’s Golden Globes. There’s not a mention of baseball, but enjoy nonetheless!
