Found December 19, 2012 on The Outside Corner:
PLAYERS: Gregg Zaun
TEAMS: Toronto Blue Jays
The rich girls from TO must be home from college. Tubby, unfortunately manish, and super stuck up are all at Hemingways tonight — Gregg Zaun (@greggzaun) December 19, 2012 Former Toronto Blue Jays catcher Gregg Zaun is one of the more insufferable ex-athletes on Twitter, with relentless plugs for parties he's hosting and other antics which seem a little bit off for a retired 41-year old. At nearly 1 AM Wednesday morning, Zaun tweeted the above, criticizing the quality of women at a Toronto area bar, which apparently has a New Zealand theme. Anyway, judging by their website, the bar appears to be a place where old men troll for young women who are trying to just have a good time with their friends, who are apparently tubby, mannish, *and* super stuck up. Gregg Zaun deserves the best, because dammit, he's the only career backup catcher who named his fanbase after a TV show! [Deadspin] [follow]

Amazin Mess: Leaving Dickey Out Of 2012 Highlights Video Is Insulting To All Of Us

2012 Positional Rankings: Relievers

I'll open this brief post with the caveat which always applies when considering future major league relievers - a lot of them are minor league starters. One need look no further than Chad Jenkins. His odds of being a productive long term major league pitcher are substantially higher in the bullpen than in the rotation. Among those who've already appeared on the starter lists...

A day later: Reflecting on the R.A. Dickey trade

Dickey trade was announced...

The...

Sandy Alderson Gets His Man… And Then Some

Patience is a virtue.  That certainly applies to the patience of Mets GM, Sandy Alderson, who once again proved his critics wrong this weekend when he secured a windfall of popular prospects from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for reigning Cy Young Award winner, RA Dickey, and his personal catchers, Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas.  In doing so, Alderson waited out both the starting...

The Toronto Blue Jays are the early favorite to win the World Series after an offseason that has seen the top choice change several times so far.
