Leave a comment

This may be my favorite “celebrity” tweet of all time.  Three tweets, actually, from Jose Canceco. First, how he’ll be spending his afternoon:

The fbi will be at my house in 20 minutes kind of
scared will let u no what they want if I can after they leave

Then, after being asked why the FBI is coming:

maybe because what I say has a lot of weight I
should be a politition

Then, the interesting part:

Omg I just got a subpoena to testify before the grand jury about roger clemens,andrew pettite and others on Thursday april 8 2010 at 100 pm

Fun!  I hope the grand jury is briefed ahead of time that the man is a living LOLcat.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
