Something different for a change
Enough politics for a while.
The Cleveland Indians kicked off baseball's off season player movement by trading pitcher Andrew Brown and infielder Kevin Kouzmanoff to the San Diego Padres for second baseman Josh Barfield. This is a really good move. Rather than spending big money from a limited budget for any of the crop of washed up infielders on the free-agent market the Tribe filled a position of need fairly cheaply. Money saved needs to be used to address the need for a power hitting corner outfielder and a closer.
Celebrity Jeopardy starts tonight (channel 9 here look it up for your own area if you aren't here). That should raise my spirits after yesterdays disappointing election results. I always feel smarter after watching the famous people look stupid on Jeopardy.

College football is nearing the end of the season and there are only five teams left undefeated. Two of them square off in New Jersey tomorrow as Louisville visits the resurgent Rutgers team. A week from Saturday two of the remaining undefeated teams will face off in one of the most anticipated regular season football games in years as TSUN (that school up north) visits Columbus, Ohio.
