Baseball's winter meetings are going on, and as a sportswriter I can attest that NOTHING is as fun to write about as meetings. Ooh, general managers talking to each other! Something might happen!
For once, something actually did happen, as the Marlins traded Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis — the last two cogs from their 2003 World Series team — to the Tigers in exchange for Detroit's farm system. The Tigers now have a lineup that can be described as the good kind of "sick," and their #5 starter could probably be a #2 on several teams. The rest of the American League has been terrified into making grammar mistakes.
"I'll tell you what," said Red Sox manager Terry Francona. "There are a lot of American League pitchers getting real nervous — and we're one of them."
So… the Red Sox are now an American League pitcher? I don't even say things that retarded when I'm drunk. As this blog post proves.
