News and Notes: Humpday Supplemental

  • Good news, everyone! There's yet more court drama coming your way today, courtesy of Fox and Frank tussling over media rights. Thankfully, the Times' Bill Shaikin is all over it, so you won't miss a single moment of riveting testimony.
  • The Dodgers are this close to signing catcher Josh Bard to a one year deal, per Dylan Hernandez.
  • Ned tells MLB.com's Ken Gurnick that he'd still like to add a bat and a late inning reliever. The term "payroll neutral" was thrown around, so it is unclear if this deal would be for just the bat, or if the player would be included.
  • The Padres are set to acquire Huston Street from the Rockies, potentially freeing up Colorado to pursue Hiroki Kuroda (MLBTR)
  • MLB and Rawlings have unveiled the commemorative ball celebrating Dodger Stadium's 50th Anniversary. (@RawlingsSports, hat tip to Ross Yoshida)

Now Ned's work is complete - he will have that new bat and some 50th anniversary balls with which to play 81 home games.

Hope he held out for an ash bat, and not one of those soft pine ones that splinter so easily.

Golf clap for the bat line, Mr. Stubbs.

Carlos Beltran still in play. I predict a sign/trade with Frisco involving a highly backloaded contract and the departure of Mr. Uribe.

*dreams*

They couldn't do any better than that for the Dodger Stadium logo? It looks like somebody drew it from the perspective of sitting on the scoreboard of a Coleco baseball game

I wish Ned was payroll neutered.

United losing; no word on Ajax.

rbnlaw said...

Ajax losing to Real 2-0.
Man City up 1-0 on Bayern.

Really need City to lose and play on Thursday nights.

rbnlaw said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what is happening right now in the Champion's League.

Bye, bye Manchester and your fucking football teams.

Ajax not faring well either.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Blow the effing whistle!

Franklin Stubbs said...

City?

Dead.

rbnlaw said...

Manchester goes to Europa league and Thursday night football. And the Premier League just got interesting.

Franklin Stubbs said...

United?

Also dead!

rbnlaw said...

United? Dead.
City? Deadman.

Fuck the billionaires and their red clad rivals. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Franklin Stubbs said...

@rbnlaw

Fergsday night, you mean?

Dusty Baker said...

Who the fuck are Man United???!

Dusty Baker said...

Ps- Yeah, fuck the billionaires!

(stares at shoes; hey, is that a rabbit over there?)

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yes, to be perfectly clear, it's the other guys' billionaires that can get fucked.

rbnlaw said...

London teams > Manchester teams, eh, Dusty?

BTW, Kronke is only a multi-millionaire. . .maybe a single-billionaire. He's no sheik, dat's fo sho.

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, RBN.

rbnlaw said...

It's a shame Shamrock Rovers were eliminated in Europa. Bet they would've loved a crack at United on Fergsday night.
