Plenty of pre-Christmas treats for you to nibble on, from the one and only Peter Gammons. My favourite quote:
One AL GM, citing the way The Boss is overriding Yankees GM Brian Cashman, senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman and his sage organization, likens the Yankees to the last decade of the Soviet Union, old and with millions upon millions of dollars unusable.
Fact, according to Peter. Here's another:
It's too bad Oliver North isn't still doing international brokering... the only way Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd could rid himself of (Denny) Neagle is in some four-way deal involving arms, cash, Iran and the Contras.
Like I said, holiday munchies, to be enjoyed with a grain of salt. Mmm...
