Saturday Night Dead

First things first - football pool:

Colts -1.5
Bengals +3.5 (best bet)
Panthers/Rams over 44.5
Broncos -2.5
Giants +3.5

Tiebreaker: 47 total points on MNF.

Second things second: The stats seem to back him up, but I'm going to disagree with Pandrew here...if Morgan Ensberg is in fact better than Aubrey Huff, it's marginally if at all. (Dear sabermetricians: I don't want to hear any explanation involving the fact that Ensberg walks all the time. The fucking guy hit .235.) Also, two years ago, Ensberg went through one of the most inexplicable slumps in history when he didn't hit his first homer until July. We have Ramirez, so whatever. Have fun with that shit, Astros.

Third things third: If Alex Cora is worth over two million a year, I'm not entirely sure that the DeRosa signing looks so bad. Alex fucking Cora? The guy won't get 250 ABs next year. The only thing of significance he's ever done is hit the eighteenth pitch of an at-bat for a homer off of Prior, which these days is no great feat - provided they'll let you go up to ball fourteen.

I might liveblog the Bear game tomorrow. It's the local FOX game here, so I can watch it at home, and I don't work until two hours after it, we shall see. I probably won't, though.

Coming soon to THS:

- A contest of some sort!
- Maybe new writers, if there is anyone up to our standards out there!
- Possibly a Spring Training event!
- Definitely a bunch of empty promises!

1) Huff has gotten worse for three straight years. His power keeps dropping.

2) I believe it was Clement in Los Angeles, not Prior, who gave up the homer to Cora.

Also, the Reds signed Alex Gonzalez (not the former Cub) for $4.67 million a year.

This season is crazy. I thought Boston's signing Matt Clement for three years at $22.5 million as a back of the rotation starter was silly, but it looks modest now.

Based on those signings, I think Jeff Suppan's annual price tag just reached eight figures.

What's hilarious is that I know these signings are driven by this phantom value in "role players" and guys with "intangibles." I just wonder, how much more effective would that $4.67mill be invested in scouting budget and medical/training staff?

Even then, I guess you have to be lucky to be good. But some of these contracts are just entirely wasteful.

Rejoice! And is it me, or is 8yr/$136mill kind of a bargain compared to other FA salaries we've seen so far? Granted, I'm only confident he'll be All-Star caliber for the first four or five years, but for now, $17mill is looking like a bargain for a Soriano talent.
