Relief pitcher Sam Dyson is being sued by his ex girlfriend for sexual battery and some other things. MLB had already suspended him for the 2021 season but obviously the battery saga continues.
Seven years is a long drought, but at least we aren’t Mariners fans.
Here is Babe Ruth dressed as Santa Claus.
Ben Zauzmer is the new Assistant General Manager for the Mets. I guess he is the backup plan in case Billy Eppler gets caught doing something indefensible. This is the Mets we are talking about after all.
Here is a link to a survey on MLB Trade Rumors about the lockout. I’m not big on surveys myself, but it is awfully hard to find anything to link to these days.
Third baseman Rio Ruiz is close to signing with the LG Twins of the KBO. Socrates Brito and Ronnie Williams signed with the Kia Tigers, also of the KBO. Meanwhile, Thyago Vieira and Zelous Wheeler will be staying with the Yomiura Giants of NPB.
The Blue Jays will renovate their existing park rather than building a new one.

One of the GOAT passed, R.I.P. John Madden. No one ever did more for the NFL than Madden with three different and distinct related careers. John Madden will never fade from the game or our memories.
He was Johnny Robocoach’s BFF growing up in the streets of Daly City, Ca. What a pair.

Good Morning and waking up to Blue Skies, nothing but Blue Skies do I see. Overnight 6 inches of new snow and now for the traffic jams and fender benders.
On the plus side, a lot of snowmen. More snow tomorrow and Thursday.
Great link with trade rumors and the poll. Overall, the fans are looking for small changes and are leaning somewhat on the player’s side. I would have added a question referring to the Owner’s raising ticket prices. A short run lockout may not really hurt the game, but anything past April mat result in indifference.
