Two ladies, four bottles of wine, and copias amounts of chocolate covered strawberries.....I am tired and I'm having trouble piecing together the latter half of the evening.....suffice to say, it was a mythical holiday this year. Please share your valentine stories (PG to PG-13 only please)
So, I am finally getting my morning cup (at noon PST) and reading up on my A's news...when I run across this confusing bit of info on the 1st Power Rankings of the Year:
FOX SPORTS SAYS WE ARE #14 (eh, OK, I can see that)
Whatifsports.com has us at #30 (WHAT THE ?? LAST IN THE LEAGUE?)
Admittedly, I have not clicked over to the whatifsports.com site to educate myself yet, I came to AN first, but no news here on this little nugget.
Update: Ok, so I did click over and it takes me to the 2008 MLB Season totals...confused as heck, since I can't find the graph that is referenced on the Fox Sports site (last updated on 1/9/09)...Help?
Also, nice little piece from Peter Gammons (first since his interview with A-Rod). I like his perspective on the interview and gives us a little window into how oblivious he was to the "potential" on these dramatic confessions being placed on his lap. IMO, his follow up questions were "soft". Gammons was clearly "caught off guard". It is interesting to see the difference between a "reporter" and an "interviewer". Maybe this is why Boras and Co. wanted him to conduct the interview.

OH, and on an unrelated basketball note, Rudy was robbed in the Slam Dunk contest yesterday.
