Oakland A's GM Billy Beane is known for his Moneyball philosophy which in general terms is finding bargain price players who have good OPS and WHIP stats. Not pitchers who are coming off elbow surgery. The A's signed former Brewer's ace Ben Sheets today to a one year contract for $10 million plus incentives when it appeared no other team was willing to go above 5-6 million for him in base. Granted I know the A's wanted a veteran starter to help bridge the gap to their young guys Brett Anderson, Dallas Braden, Gio Gonzalez and Trevor Cahill but it seems like they way overpaid for a starter who has had durability concerns all of his career. So what the fuck is Beane thinking on this one? Unless Sheets catches magic in a bottle there is no way he is going to pitch worthy of $10 million even if it's just a one year gamble. Seems like Beane is getting desperate out there in Oakland with the Mariners greatly improved and the Angels and Rangers both legitimate playoff contenders in 2010.

If you are an NFL GM how can you pass on Mount Cody? He looks like a D.C. hooker. For this reason alone it wouldn't surprise me to see Dan Snyder grab the big guy early in the 2nd round. Those boobs are mesmerizing and that belly button is deep enough to hold the holy grail.

I finally managed to watch "Jersey Shore" the other day so I could see what all the hype was about. It's fake right? Those can't be real people. Snookie and The Situation are clearly struggling comedians trying to make a name for themselves by acting like jackasses. I guess I get the fascination with the show because it's a train wreck waiting to happen but I don't really give a shit about the people on the show. It's not like one of them is Pedro and has AIDS. Next season if they can manage to get Nick Kroll (Bobby Bottleservice) as one of the cast members then I will give it another shot.

While you are sitting in your cubicle thinking of a way to poison your boss's coffee without anybody catching on you can enjoy these "candid" shots of reality star Heidi Montag doing some yoga with her new DDD breasts. I kinda feel bad for her because now every guy is just going to stare at her enormous jugs instead of her plastic face. I feel ya pain Heidi. Now you know how I feel when I go cycling on my training wheels with my bicycle shorts on. WWTDD has more pictures in case you were wondering...
