The Red Sox‘ strategy of saving money on razors & shaving cream and spending that money on quality players & coaches paid off nicely last year. This season, they’re cutting back on soap & deodorant. It should help get them back to the postseason, if only because opponents will often become disorientated by the odor.

The Rays may be the loosest team in baseball thanks to manager Joe Maddon. He has put on quite show this spring with his Allen Iverson impersonation and his skills as a sandwich artist, preparing subs for a team lunch. He is also an accomplished juggler, as evidenced by the handling of his pitching staff in their final game last season.


“We talkin’ bout: TOMATOES? Uh yes actually, we are. Lots of tomatoes. Tomatoes for all.”

Orioles slugger Chris Davis is likely to hit 50 home runs for the second consecutive season. Making the feat even more impressive is the fact that he will have done so without the advantage of being able to hit off Baltimore pitching or without any performance enhanc…well at least he did it without facing Baltimore pitching.

It’s been a rough month for evil empires. First, Russia was kicked out of the G8 and now the Yankees have been displaced as the top spending team in baseball. We have heard rumors that Hal Steinbrenner is very displeased with this news and is considering invading and annexing the Tampa Bay Rays.

Last year, the Blue Jays were like Rogue of the X-Men – they seemed to absorb the abilities of a team they traded with. Unfortunately for them, that team was the Marlins. This offseason, their most recent trades were with the Angels and Phillies. Yikes! One could probably call that an improvement, but probably not enough to close the gap on 4th place.
