A short review of The Simpsons Movie:

Very funny.

OK, that might have been too short, but there are plenty of laugh-out-loud moments. It's just a shame I had to sell a kidney to afford three tickets.

To clarify something I wrote in a recent entry: I never said the Rangers wanted Daniel Cabrera as part of a Mark Teixeira deal and the Orioles wouldn't part with him. Cabrera wasn't the pitcher who interested the Rangers. Read Jeff Zrebiec's story in tomorrow's edition of The Sun and it'll all make sense.

If the Braves want to rent Teixeira for the rest of this season and 2008, good for them. They're a yearly contender. They figure it's worth trading all those top-level prospects, even if they don't sign Teixeira to an extension, if it means making a serious run at the World Series.

It makes no sense for the Orioles to give up top prospects, and a pitcher who isn't named Daniel Cabrera, if Teixeira is going to test the free-agent waters after the 2008 season. They wouldn't rent Tim Hudson or Derrick Lee, and they're not going to rent Teixeira, though he would have been under their control through next season.
