Why has the Hot Stove been so lame this year? Free agents have been able to negotiate with teams for two full weeks now, yet the only player to sign with a new team has been Jeremy Affeldt. Jon Heyman says a number of things could be affecting free agency, including the economy, Scott Boras, and CC Sabathia. It’s understandable that other free agent pitchers would wait for CC to sign so he could set the market, and of course Boras is Mr. My Client Will Sign When He’s Damn Well Ready, but come on man, throw a blogger a bone. We’re running out of things to write about.
Hopefully we get some actual news soon, because I’m going through withdrawals here. Until then, check out this wicked awesome video of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade getting Rick Roll’d (h/t Jamal G.):
How great is that?
Here’s your open thread for the evening. The only local team in action tonight are the Rangers, who are down in Ft. Lauderdale to take on the Panthers. Otherwise you’ve got … uh … Dwayne Wade taking on old friend Shaq out in the desert. I guess that’s interesting.
You know the deal, anything goes, just be cool to each other.
