"Who wouldn't want to play for the Boston Red Sox?"

Al:
So it looks like the Yankees may go all offense all the time next season.

 

Mike:
Big friggin' whoop.

 

Doug:
I love the smell of desperation in the morning.

 

Al:
Seriously. It's like El Caballito said after signing his contract extension, "I play for the best team in the major leagues … We're going to have an opportunity to win every single year."

 

Doug:
Christ, was that smaht Theo move or what? An MVP second baseman potentially locked up until 2015 at a very reasonable price? Winnerz!

 

Mike:
And could the contrast between Pedroia signing now, and most likely taking fah less money than if he waited to free agent eligibility because he's in a place "he loves" stand in any greatah contrast than the Manny Being Shenaniganny scene last summah?

 


Doug:
Damn you Global Financial Crisis™!

 

Al:
Well, maybe if Manny doesn't get the money he expects, he can petition Congress for a bailout?

 

Mike:
Yeah, I can see it now …

Barney Frank: "Mr. Ramirez, your report to the Committee detailing why we should grant you taxpayah money contains only a single line: 'Manny sees the ball. Manny hits the ball.'

"Is there anything else you'd like to add?"

Manny Ramirez: "Yes, sir, also my grandmother she is very sick."

 

Doug:
But what about poor Boras?

 

Mike:
Congress should just go ahead and make Boras a big cheese in the State Department so he can use his negotiating savvy with foreign nut jobs … "Mr. Ahmadinejad, meet Mr. Boras, Mr. Scott Boras."

 

Doug:
"Damn you Boras you infidel scum for talking us into overpaying for these centrifuges well past their prime!"

Would Manny drive to the Congressional bailout hearing in one of his pimped-out '70s cars?

Maybe he can put the grille back up on e-bay

hb, great strip this week. Loved the shenaniganny line. And who trademarked "damn you global financial crisis?"

Rich, do you mean the "grille" of his pimped out car? In these times, he would have better luck getting rid of his BBQ grill on Craigslist.

h.b. - brilliant as ever.

Yeah Nola,what you said :)

Manny being shenaniganny...

That is hilarious.

death, taxes, and HB teeing one up...


great stuff. but I wonder if Borass and Mrs. Bill would work well together @ State.

Well, I'm off to the company Christmas party (whoops, sorry, HOLIDAY party).


Have a great weekend all. Hopefully we'll have something fun to yak about on Monday.

Very funny today, as always, h.b.!

Bore-ass comes out ahead no matter what kind on contract Manny gets - he would have gotten nothing if the Sox had picked up the options, since he didn't negotiate those, Manny's previous agent did.

Terrific strip.
