Watching Baseball Tonight

Watching a bit of Baseball Tonight...aah, to hear that theme music, to listen to a show dedicated to brought back the thrill of the baseball season (How many days to season opener?). Of course, the focus is on the winter meetings and especially on the rumors/possibility of a Santana trade. Man, watching the Santana highlights...I have been coming to terms with the very real possibility that Santana will be gone...but the thrill of watching that man pitch will never go away. I will watch Santana pitch wherever he goes...even if it's for the freakin' Yankees.

Thank you Bill Smith for not making that stinkin' trade on my birthday (although actually keeping Santana would have been the best present of all)!

For Pete's sake...

My husband, the ever-enchanting Mr. Curveball, has been taunting me all weekend by coming up to me while I'm busy cooking or engrossed in a t.v. program and giving me "updates" about the Santana trade situation. The only problem is his updates are highly exaggerated and contain only a small kernal of truth. Of course, he offers up that kernal first so I'm hooked and think I'm about to hear that Santana is gone.
When, and if, it does really happen...well, I am going to be in one foul mood. Wednesday is my birthday and a Santana trade is not on my Wish list.
Frankly, I don't really want to contemplate any potential trades until it's a done deal. I'd rather dig my head in the snow and remember the joy of watching Santana pitch (ah, that little butt wiggle).
And for pete's sake, don't trade him to the Yankees!
