I am still recovering from the great announcement, so the blog will be a little lean over the next few days. Penn State news will have to wait again. There was not much yesterday either. I have a few items from yesterday to add that do not even have anything to do with baseball.

One word: Youppi. It looks like he is coming here.
MLB Deal Could Mean Huge Profit For Angelos – The Post
No surprise here. Baltimore may get stronger for having competition down I-95. Of course, that means they will only go out and get more washed-up sluggers.

Traffic May Be OK – The Post
A lot of this will depend on when the games will start, 7:05 or 7:35. It will not be a big deal at RFK, but it will be in SE. They need more than a 1,000 parking spaces too, even if folks are encouraged to Metro.

Drinkers object to Jack Daniel’s watering whiskey down – AP via USA Today
Apparently, this is not the first time this has happened to Jack. It was once 90 proof. Thankfully, Jim Beam, will not be making the same mistake. I still have about 100 mL of 86 proof JD left, but the bottle after that one is 80 proof. My condolences to CLY, FCY, and Sam.

Good times.
