OBSERVATIONS ON BOBBY VALENTINE ON SUNDAY NIGHT BASEBALL from Awful Announcing: "[H]is first year will mirror that of Jon Gruden's.  He'll have some great insight at times, then completely annoy you for three games in a row." That's still better than McCarver.

AND WE'RE BACK...Prepping for the big day of arbitration insanity tomorrow.  Thanks to the kindness of Lar Granillo, I have a few long form thoughts on the Hall of Fame over at his place.  And if you aren't reading Wezen-Ball, you're missing some tremendous baseball coverage.

PROPERLY FRAMING THE MATT GARZA TRADE Sky Kalkman nails it.The reason the Rays win this trade every time is because with Jeremy Hellickson available to replace Garza, the Rays are trading a surplus commodity. The acquisition of young, cheap talent while shedding salary without sacrificing performance gives the Rays an obvious win, even if Garza is the Cubs ace in 2011. It's much like the Pirates trade of Nate McLouth that allowed them to play Andrew McCutchen full time.
