TODAY'S NEW YORK TIMES . . .

. . . was not very interesting. I am not sure that there is even one thing I want to talk about. Israel and Hezbollah are fighting. The Congolese are voting. There is a mega-church pastor who is not politically a Bushite. You've heard it all before.

Meanwhile the Yankees traded for Bobby Abreau. $15 million this year for .277 hitting and 8 home runs. Of course his on base percentage is .427, but $15 million is a deal only the Yankees would make.

David: I patiently await your sage commentary on the last place Nats decision to hang onto Soriano, an obvious centerpiece for any team, despite having starting pitching that couldn't compete in the Pittsburgh North Catholic Elementary School League. A decision which, incidentally, this sentimentalist from a long by-gone era cheers avidly -- Matt

There is a reason why the Yankees are perpetually in the playoffs. That is because they reinvest the loads of cash that they make back into their roster (not to mention supporting the rest of the league with welfare payments in the form of payroll taxes). Perhaps the Cubs franchise, with access to much more monetary assets than the NYY, should take that approach instead of investing in a ticket brokerage to scalp tickets to tourists from Naperville. Enjoy last place, once again.
