Busy sports day yesterday. Pujols, Wilson and all that. The Hardball Times offers a recap (and they did a fine job covering the meetings).
The Yanks are layin’ in the cut, though they have reportedly made a one-year offer to pitcher Hiroki Kuroda. Also, Mariano Rivera is okay after having surgery on his vocal chords.
Over in the NBA, a nixed trade (gas face0; Tyson Chandler to the Knicks? Dwight Howard: Brooklyn’s Finest?
Plenty to schmooze about. Have at it.

Yeah man, I'm super excited about the NBA season. I wish it always started on Christmas every year, with the Celtics vs. Knicks tipping off the season.
That Paul trade getting nixed is crazy. Chandler to the Knicks, LOVE IT!!!! The Knicks need a big man more than a PG, IMHO.
Fun stuff. And let's not forget, THE F'ING COWBOYS AGAINST THE G-MEN THIS SUNDAY.
Chandler is a start, man. Nice player. And Stern blocking that trade is knuts.
