Golf? Here it is like 12 degrees outside and windy. Best thing we can do here is stay indoors and play Wii Golf.
25* with a foot of snow at my place this morning, but 20 minutes of driving and was sunny and 70* at the bottom of the mountain, so yes golf. Just love Southern Cal.
-10C and snow and ice here. I'll be firing up the fireplace tonight for Survivor

So what did you guys think about the big trade? Ayebatter must have liked it i.e. no Red Sox or Yankees involved.
Consensus seems to be that Toronto really blew it by not offloading Halladay back in the summer when they had more leverage. Others seemed to think Seattle did OK - a fairly cheap Cliff Lee for one year and after that at the very least two compensatory draft picks. Halladay's new contract puts the Phillies in the top 5 for payroll now.
