this is a beautiful and delicate ballad, gently performed by all involved on this February 1968 date. an impressive choice, from a not well-known lee morgan solo record, one of his last of 25 albums he cut as a leader for Blue Note Records.

another brilliant musician taken from us way too early and under incredibly stoopid circumstances.

Well well, not Toronto but Texas. So, if he's good, that's a very formidable team.

Hi thelarmis!

[1] Yep, as usual thelarmis speaks the Truth!

I'm outraged over Texas winning the Yu Darvish auction. What is the world coming to when a baseball team in TEXAS outbids the Yankees?

I don't understand what was the fucking point of bidding less than Matsusaka's winning bid. Cashman had to know that the other bidders would use that as the watermark.

A mere 52 million would have got it done.

It's at times like these that I wish George was still alive.

[4] Did you notice that that bid was way too much for Matsusaka? As it turned out. So it's not clear why you think that means the Yankees should have bid more than that.

[5] But Matsuzaka wasn't a complete bust for the Sox. Plus, the amount of money they made with Japan connections had to be substantial..is there any way to find out about that? TV, merchandise, travel packages from Japan, etc etc.
