What? No Trades?

This was supposed to be the busiest week in winter meetings history. What the hell happened? Here waits Metstradamus...staring at ESPNEWS waiting for something to flip over the "breaking news" box like an adolescent staring at the phone waiting for the homecoming queen to call, after she promised she'd call. Well she hasn't called and I'm getting a little pissed off.

Instead, the best I get is "Agent: Clemens mulling retirement".

Well duh! He's 124 years old, he mulls retirement every time he gets out of bed! That's not news. That's like, the aging process. Call me when he hangs them up so I can put him on the hate list.

The most entertaining news of the day is everyone's favorite exhibitionist whining that the Mets want to trade her husband because she talked to Playboy about a pictorial.

Maybe the Mets want to trade him because Anna's sapping his energy in the parking lot.

Gee Anna, you were right. I guess it is your fault.

But come on, what's wrong with Baltimore? Yeah sure, you can't get the marketing possibilities you would in New York...but Anna Benson hawking crabmeat and Legal Sea Foods? I think it's a natural!

Hang on! I've just heard on BBC Radio that Omar has traded the Mets remaining pitching prospects PLUS Mr Met for Billy the Marlin and Jeff Conine. Billy the Marlin and Jeff Conine will in turn be dealt along with Carlos Delgado and Paul LoDuca to the Red Sox for Manny Ramirez and cash considerations which will allow Omar to sign Sammy Sosa as a free agent!
