Wily Mo Pena traded to BoSox for Bronson Arroyo, Cash

he took a below-market salary because he wanted to stay in boston. now he's not going to be in Boston anymore and he's still stuck with a below-market salary. It seems unlikely (although anything's possible) that he would have done that without some assurance that Boston wasn't going to move him first chance they got. That seems a little sad to me, if not especially surprising given the nature of the sport.

Hard not to feel bad for Arroyo here. Maybe he shouldn't have been so naive about the cutthroat nature of the game, but still, you hate to see him effectively punished for being loyal to the club.

from the article: Bell retained answering machine recordings of him after he threatened to kill her, remarking that if she disappeared no one would be able to prove he even knew her. d'oh!

Hell freezes over!

Their coverage of the receivers and constant pressure on Gannon made the MVP look like Rick Mirer Of course, the complete failure of Oakland to even attempt to establish the run made the job of the Tampa D quite a bit easier than it otherwise might have been. You can't pass 44 times and rush 7 and expect to succeed agaist a defense like the Bucs.
