2 more years of Punto. I'm happy with that. There may have even been a little happy dancing on my part.
Today I am wearing my pink unicorn barrettes in celebration, even though they don't match my outfit (or, indeed, my age) one bit.
I know that loads of people don't like Punto. I don't care.
In other baseball news, a crap-ton of deals were made this week. None of them involved Manny Ramirez, and now he's threatening to take his ball and go home and retire. Personally, I would love love love it if everyone called his bluff.
I have to say, I think my favorite non-Punto transaction would have to be Matt Joyce to the Rays. Matt Joyce is completely adorable, and has the potential to be freakishly good at baseball. My two favorite things.
And now that he plays for a team that I like, which is NOT in our division, I don't have to hate him anymore. That is excellent news. I also see him as a prime candidate for fill the slot as Evan Longoria's BFF. They'd be so cute together! The Rays organization should seriously look into whether or not they can contractually obligate them to do so.
I also liked the Orioles moves this week. Ryan Freel is fun, and hopefully now we'll get to see Matt Wieters behind the plate. People say he's Mauer-like. Should be interesting, and I'm definitely more excited to see Baltimore come to town now.
