No real need or drive for a lengthy update tonight. This post will be very matter-of-fact. Advertisements
Even though it won’t go live until Monday morning, I feel the need to write about catchers on Sunday night.
I’m just going to come right out and say it, Jon Daniels is Lando Calrissian, minus the black-guy coolness that comes with being played by Billy Dee Williams.
This was going to be a post about Mike Napoli, but that can wait.
The off-season is never as simple as it seems. Everyone goes into October (or November, if you’re a part of baseball’s elite eight) with a checklist of where they would like to make their team better.
It’s being reported that Yu Darvish is on his way.
So ends the greatest and most tragic season in Texas Rangers history. Without getting too bogged down in flowery language and metaphor, let me say that I look forward to whatever is to come. Until then…
In the midst of Tuesday’s post-Darvish hubbub, Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com threw out the following on Twitter: “An All-Star team of the Rangers and Angels could beat the Red Sox and Yankees. West is the new East.”

First things first, the title of this post is a Biz Markie reference. I apologize for nothing.
It has been a good long while since I’ve written about baseball and, in that time, there has been a great deal of baseball played.
