Life is good: So, I'm at the international coral reef symposium in Okinawa. I've had an amazing few days, seeing and photographing rare and magnificent wildlife. And I find that my press pass grants me free internet access on a suh-weet fast internet connection.
Then, I log on, and find that Bill Bavasi has stolen San Shin Object of Affection Jeremy Reed from the White Sox along with Miguel Olivo. Hot damn, it's a good day!
I don't have time to say much more than this for now, but I wanted to point out:
1. The blog is back, in limited form, for at least the next four days or so;
2. I'll be posting a few photos from the trip in addition to the stuff I normally do here; and
and 3. Here's a link to David Cameron's post explicating the Garcia trade's virtues.
To give you an additional idea about how much David likes this trade, here's a quick tale. When I posted earlier this year that the M's should ask for Reed for Garcia, Dave -- who has forgotten more about the minors than I know -- fired off an email to me saying effectively "nice idea, but there's no way in a million years the White Sox would do that."
I am sure he is thrilled to have been mistaken. As are we all.
