Oh, no. No Vidro?

The Yanks are reported to have obtained Javier Vasquez from the Expos for a slew of younger talent. That means, unless Vlad stays in MontrealSanJuanWashingtonDC, it's higly likely that the Expos will be able to keep Vidro through his 2004 (he's a free agent at the end of the year).

Maybe the best bet is to give Grudz a 1 year deal. It's not to give him, OR Vina, a multi year deal. Todd Walker? Only on the cheap. Maybe Eckstein if he's non-tendered. I dunno. Vidro and Castilla were the best two. Looks like both are gone.

Chuck the Stats

The Chicago Tribune reports that they have hired Chuck Wasserstrom as the team's baseball information manager focusing on players' statistics and salaries.

Chuck is the team's media relations person. Why this guy is qualified to be a stats guru is beyond me. But at least they filled a position that should have been filled in 1990.

Museum Displays

Don't you like to visit museums? See their holiday season stuff focusing on the wonderful diversity of religions in the world? Well, the new Alexandria Library in Egypt is doing just this with a section on Judaism. It seems that they have several texts on display, inlcuding a torah right next to a copy of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Well, if you haven't heard of the Protocols, you should. It's about a Jewish conclave convened in the last years of the nineteenth century and details on how Jews are plotting to take over the world.

It's also a forgery.

I wonder what would be the reaction to a museum display showing a Qu'ran next to a box cutter?
