Here's some of what was posted last night while you caught up with your beauty sleep.
A- The South Florida Fan Blog gives us their take on the Manny Ramirez trade rumors.
My thoughts? DO IT! The price is steep, certainly, but Manny is a sure thing. This is a franchise desperately in need of a publicity stunt. The Marlins are deep enough in pitching prospects that they can afford to make the sacrifice.
One thing I have to say: No matter what criticism people levy on the Marlins, they have always shown a propensity to make bold moves. While the rest of the league plays cowards, the Marlins go for it. The Marlins may be cheap, but they have guts. And guts won them two titles already.
B- Tilefortlauderdale leaves Courtney at a Shell station on Federal Highway.
C- Speaking of Tilefortlauderdale, Incertus demonstrates that blogger's worlds sometimes intersect.
D- If you think you've had some bad luck flying lately, you really need to check this post by Discourse.
So we’re back in Miami. Cabin crew tell us that anyone who wishes to leave the plane here may do so, but if we leave we may not be allowed back on. The captain explains that the offending part is easy to replace, it’s just like a circuit board - you snap it in, test it, and then he’s fully confident in flying the plane. One Swedish couple leaves, saying they don’t trust the plane any more. There’s a trickle of departures. One person returns with coffee from Starbucks, and now we all want off.
