    Here We Go Again
    In the days and weeks that have recently passed I have mentioned that I have been woefully out of the baseball loop. And it couldn't have come at a worse time.

    By 4pm tomorrow, the trade deadline will be upon us, and with it could come an entirely new look for the Sox. I doubt it, but it's possible. With it could also come the departure of Manny Ramirez. And suddenly I am having flashbacks to the A-Rod deal, the Nomar trade, and a thousand other moves that both happened and didn't happen.

    I hate this time of year.

    While certain people revel in the excitement, debate the merits of various trades, I've always been one to sit back and get silently fumed at all the people running around acting like they know something. When it comes down to it, those of us not in the front-offices of any MLB team today and tomorrow, know nothing about what's going on up there. We can theorize, sure. We can debate fake trades that may or may not happen, but it is simply impossible for me to really get into any of the debates unless it's actually a "done deal" (though that term doesn't even mean much anymore).

    So today while I am at the Dave Matthews Band concert on Randall's Island, and tomorrow while I help my new roomie paint her room, I'll be turning off my cell phone. I won't listen to the radio. I won't read the papers.

    I'll deal with it all on Monday. Welcome to Trade Deadline Weekend everyone. Try not to have any heart attacks.

      On Monday at work, if something should happen not in the Sox favor, will you be walking around your office like Fred Sanford? Both hands over your heart, "OOHHHHH, this is the big one! Here I come Elizabeth. I'm comin' to see ya!"

      I don't want Manny to go, I do want Cameron who has been doing his best Belhorn impression lately.
      So how was Dave?

      LOL April. Great visual.

      And finy, with all the yankee fans you're going to have to deal with tomorrow if Theo trades Manny, I'd think you'd want to be prepared before you hit work. Have faith. Bill James must have reminded Theo how idiotic it is to trade away HoF players.
