Happy Holidays!

This entry is dedicated to the holidays and winter. Here are just some tidbits of holiday happiness:


The snow here in the North East is up to four inches and counting. Talk about a winter wonderland!                                                                                          Go to fullsize imageGo to fullsize imageGo to fullsize imageGo to fullsize image


The holidays are right around the corner and there’s a strong possibility of a White Christmas this year.


Rocco Baldelli received an early holiday present last week when he discovered that his doctors mis-diagnosed him with mitochondial disease, a non treatable disease which causes fatigue and the mitochondria cannot produce alot of energy (ATP). My cousin also has it so I know its a difficult disease to live through. Rocco discovered he really had channel-opothy, a non-progressive, highly treatable disease. This will definetly aid him with his free agency.


Mark Teixeira will make a decision on a team this week, according to a Major League Source, bringing a present to whichever team signs him. This will finally end all his controversy surrounding his free agency.


The Giambino is also likely to bring a holiday present to the Oakland A’s as he is speaking with Billy Beane on bringing him back to Oakland for 2-3 years.


Well, that’s all for today. Remember, I encourage you to leave comments and enjoy my blog.


Enjoy the last days of 08′!

  1. Interesting news about Baldelli! I hadn’t heard the report yet! Good to know it’s treatable, perhaps it will make teams less apprehensive with the signing process.

  2. Elizabeth,

    You’re right, it probably will make teams less apprehensive with his signing process. I’m hoping now the Rays are more into resigning him now and although I dislike the Red Sox, I wouldn’t mind if they signed him since my cousin, who has the mitochondrial disorder, lives up there.
