-Flames out last night at beat reporter Andy Martino. He was belittling blog writers and trying to be a comedian. What has happened to the brick and mortar industry? Do editors actually want their writers trying to compete with the Comedy Channel. What I did was wrong. I need to stay away from Twitter. My skin is thin and I can't seem to ignore this crap.
-Do people actually still believe that Herman Cain is running for the President of the United States?
-Jason Stark was first to report that LHP Pat Misch signed a minor-league deal with the Phillies. Good for him. He was a trooper for the Mets, but had hit the ceiling in the system. The least he will be for the Phillies is an instant scout on what the Mets currently have in Buffalo.
-Lastly, I thought I'd bring everyone up to date with the deals done so far this off-season by Sandy and Company:
Signed Vinny Rottino - 36 total major league at bats... 7 hits
Signed Adam Loewen - 5.38 career major league ERA -35 games... oh yeah, he now plays oF
Re-signed Valentino Pascucci - 73 major league at bats - .192
