La Russa retires

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/7173381/tony-la-russa-st-louis-cardinals-says-retiring


A certainty for the Baseball Hall of Fame because I fully expect that there'll be double standards regarding PEDs (ie the players get punished whilst the enabling managers get away with it).


Meanwhile, CC decides not to opt for free agency and re-ups with the Highlanders by adding another year and another $30m to his contract.

Quade gets the boot from the Cubs and the Cards are talking to Ryno, it is going to be a good off season.

Wilson Ramos has been rescued

http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/7222317/wilson-ramos-washington-nationals-found-alive-well-kidnapping


In the first major move of the hot-stove league, Papelbon is leaving the Sox for the Phillies

http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/extras/extra_bases/2011/11/cherington_red.html



The atmosphere when Pap took the mound at Fenway was incredible..............




............ however, when he actually started pitching, he was scary. Yes, he normally got the desired result but it always looked more difficult than it should have.


I wonder what entry music Pap will use in Philly

London, Ontario........................................




http://www.londoncommunitynews.com/2011/11/pro-baseball-team-named/

Quote
London’s moniker in the Frontier Baseball League (FBL) will officially be the Rippers with a logo bearing a resemblance to Jack the Ripper, an infamous late-19th century serial killer from London, England, who preyed on female prostitutes.

Aside from the contentious name, the timing of the announcement coincided with Wear Purple Day in London, an initiative that aims to raise awareness about issues relating to women abuse.

Could be a good hire. Sveum should have got the Brewers job permanently a few years back after a successful spell as "interim"

The Houston Astros have been sold and will be switched to the American League

This will mean inter-league games every day of the season and probably an extra Wild Card spot

Plus it brings balance of 15 teams to both leagues, and finally the cubs can regain their rightful place of 5th and last place in the NL central!

My favorite part of the Paplebon saga is that everyone in Boston is now RIPPING him and claiming they never liked him in the first place.

Which isn't really a shocker, but it is still funny.


(because it is blatantly not true)
