    -John Allen has agreed to stay. DanO isn't going anywhere.....all parties will report to Castellini

    -$60-65 million is the budget....this year

    -good baseball leads to good attendance, which leads to more revenue, which leads to bigger budget, which leads to better baseball....

    I should have gone ahead and breathed.

    Really down.

    Not impressive at all.

    I actually expected less. At least Allen isn't a baseball guy now.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Re: Holding my breath until Thursday

    Driving home from work here in Michigan, I was trying to listen to this. There was alot of static and fading in and out. What was he sayig about Sweet Lou? All I heard was he might be invited to Spring Training. It also sounded like a possibility of a return in some way next year?

    Maybe it was just wishful thinking amongst the static...

    Re: Holding my breath until Thursday

    I had a lot of static too, but I heard something about Spring Training and understood that Pinella will be competing with Wily Mo and Kearns for a spot in the outfield.

    That is correct, isn't it?

    Cheap talk which is immediatley contradicted by this little factoid per Matt

    -John Allen has agreed to stay. DanO isn't going anywhere.....all parties will report to Castellini

    My grandfather would sum it all up if he were here by saying "Don't pee down my back and tell me its raining" well he wouldn't say pee but you get the point.

    All in all one giant sense of "what-the-bleep-ever, wake me when something actually changes" as far as I'm concerned. Why not give the fans some hope and fire Allen and Dan O now? We're not going to win anything this year with them, what do you have to lose? At least give us hope.
