So... you're Jim Hendry and you left a giant hole in your rotation when you sent Ted Lilly away.
Where do you go shopping for a stud lefty starter who was your best pitcher?
You've got Dempster, Wells, Gorzy, and you've got kids who might do well in Cashman, Coleman, you've got even YOUNGER kid in Archer, and you've got wildcards in Silva, Zambrano.
It's unsettling when you consider the pitching in the rest of the Central, and the fact that Jim's got Target money rather than Chanel money.
I don't know about you guys, but balancing job and shopping for holidays has been seriously one-sided in the favor of job.
Like, as soon as I'm done here I'm gonna haul to some mall and, you know, walk around in a daze and try to imagine what my daughter wants since she won't tell me.
Son was easy because he's going on a big trip soon, and he doesn't have a camera.
I snuck away from work at lunch last week and went into a Best Buy, and I was in and out in 10 minutes:
A salesman goes can I help you?
I go yeah, I need that inexpensive Cool Pix, memory and case.
He goes ahh, you're not like the others.
I go how's that?
He goes you wouldn't believe how many people ask for help but...don't know what they want.
I go that's idiotic.
He goes you want the extended Best Buy warranty?
I go no.
He goes here happy holidays.
And I was out.
But now, I'm about to go be idiotic and not know what I want as I wander in a mall.
If I find Matt Garza on sale, I'll call Jim Hendry.
