Irony 2.0

Just as I finish up a blog post with this:

"Of course, this all goes out the window if the O's do something nuts like trade for an Adrian Gonzalez or sign a Matt Holliday, but there's not much chance of that happening right now."

I flip over to Twitter to see that it's alive with the sound of groaning, because it looks like Andy MacPhail made Matt Holliday an 8 year, $130 million contract offer. No word if that offer is still good, of course. Maybe Jason Bay's contract has depressed the market slightly.

  1. I wonder if the Orioles can just tell a player, "Hey listen, if people ask if we made you an offer can you make some vague non-denial?" And then they can say, "We offered eleventybillion dollars but they just wouldn't come here :(" and mollify the fans.
