Yankees win trade, Detroit finishes second, Diamondbacks lose
The Yankees got a superstar center fielder and gave up nothing. Austin Jackson is not gonna make it. He strikes out too much. Phil Coke is a guy. Ian Kennedy has injury problems. If he turns out to be healthy, ok, but the EV of the situation is not good.

Detroit got Scherzer, because the Diamondbacks are morons. They had such a great collection of talent a few years ago, and they ruined it with repeated stupidity. That's what you get for putting an agent in charge. Scherzer is an actual talent. The rest of the crap they got... look Edwin Jackson is ok, but he's not the type of pitcher that will succeed in Arizona. The thin air will send his pitches flying. And he's more expensive than Scherzer. The Kennedy thing. We discussed that.

The other guy is a guy.
Hi, Julien. I hope you remember me, I'm Charles Horecker's professor friend at Oberlin, you stayed with him and me at my place way back in 2004? 2005? before heading out to Asia together. I know you and he fought a couple of years ago, but I know you were good friends before that.

I just wanted to let you know that Charles died last week in a car accident, near his grandfather's place in Carbondale, Illinois. You can find the obituary on the web. There's also a virtual funeral book that the family set up, if you want to pay your respects.

Sad, right? All the craziness Charles engaged in, and to die in a car accident in rural Illinois.

Hope you're well--

Patrick O'Connor
