Padres hire Bud Black as Manager.

Frankly, I am glad it wasn't Dusty Baker..not only because it would be weird for moi to talk about someone else named Dusty..I just wasn't fond of the man's methods.

I hope Buddy is the key to the next level for my boys in San Diego. But I think they need more than just a decent manager. John Fuckwit Moores needs to open the ole wallet too. Something he hasn't been very good at in a long time.

First off, they sent Josh Barfield to the Indians. I will miss him, he was a good kid, decent player. They got infielder Kevin Kousmanoff and pitcher Andrew Brown. I will have to look these guys up since I don't have a friggin clue who the hell they are. Josh was 3rd in the League with only 9 errors. His BA wasn't too bad for a rookie: 280.

That well-tanned freak, GM Kevin Towers has commenced his wheel and deals starting with Barfield. He is after Gary Sheffield and the second part of the Giles brothers, Marcus..and will only have to give up set-up man Scott Linebrink, who is one of the best in the business imo.

Can't wait to see what happens..the party has just begun.

Oh yeah..the Dem's swept the table on Tuesday night..This might not make all my readers happy but it put a smile on my face.

Hell, Dems almost did sweep the toss-up seats. Ford barely lost in TN.

Now, folks are saying that it isn't the Democratic Party's greatness, but rather a backlash against the Republicans that caused this blue wave. So? The Reds lost pretty much every Seante seat that wasn't in the Deep South. Fuck 'em, somebody needed to put a leash on Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld. Rummy got thrown into the volcano.

I believe it was an anti-repube backlash too SR..so the Dem's need to give the people a reason to stick w/them.
