Wednesday Bird Droppings

Rob Carr

Reading them is like waking up to the smell of fresh baked cinnamon rolls!

I wanted to start the notes off today with a riff on The Shining by saying 'All hot stove reports and no trades makes PBR a dull boy'. But then the Marlins and Bleu Jays went and set the interwebz all atwitter. Wowza. The mind harkens back to the 10 player deal betwixt the O's and Yankees in 1976 that brought Uncle Rick Dempsey, Tippy Martinez, Scott McGregor, and Rudy May to the O's for Doyle Alexander, Elrod Hendricks, and Ken Holtzmen and some others. The O's were the team getting the younger talent in exchange for the major league vets that time, just as the Marlins did this time. A lot of young (and cheap) talent will be playing in South Beach in the coming years. I'm particularly fond of their future outfield with current stud Giancarlo Stanton likely to be joined by top 30 prospects Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick in the near future.

But why am I typing this? No one reads the links anyway. Onward, ho!
