More drip, drip, drip from the Matt Holliday faucet

Jan 5, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

A lot of you get sick of the little piece-by-piece rumor mill of the hot stove season, preferring that we wait until there’s a solid news story instead of a mere rumor to talk about something.  I understand why you feel that way, but I disagree with that approach for the simple reason that I view a blog as a conversation, and you shouldn’t expect your friendly neighborhood blogger to zip it until news is official any more than you would the guy on the next bar stool over from you.

Wait. Bad example. God, I wish that guy would shut up.

Anyway, the point is that we make it pretty darn clear when we actually pretend to be reporting news around here. The rest of the time we’re just chatting, and there’s no harm in that. Chat back at us. That’s what the comments are for.

With that disclaimer out of the way, I’m going to offer you another one of those little bitty pieces of gossip that drive some of you crazy:  According to 590 The Fan (question: is there a sports radio station in the country that doesn’t call itself “the Fan”?) Matt Holliday has put an offer down on a home in the St. Louis area.  I’m guessing this means that the courtship is over and the kissing has begun.

Next up: Jon Heyman tweets that Holliday has signed offer sheets on houses in Balitmore, New York and San Francisco, and that he’s very close to signing a lease on a co-op in a “mystery city.”

    The real question here: do Scott Boras’ lips move when Heyman talks?

    C’mon, Craig. According to FCC regulations, sports radio stations can also be called “The Score” and “The Zone,” but they are expressly forbidden from having a “Morning Zoo Crew.” You’re better than this.

    Wow. Easy there, Dayn. If you really are THE Dayn Perry who used to be awesome, that is. I used to read your Hero of the Week and Villain of the week religiously. Then something happened.

    Your submitting posts from a bar now, Craig? Did you run out of alcohol to keep you warm around the house during this winter blitz, decide to finally get dressed for the first time in a couple months, and sashay down to the nearest watering hole to rewarm your insides? And is the guy on the stool next to you still jabbering about his crappy job as a lawyer?

    GBSimons:
    When insulting someone, try to use correct grammar.
    I think you meant, “You’re submitting posts …” right?
    Stop commenting from a bar, peabrain.

    Thenk ewe four thuh corekshun, empty-Jay. Actually, I’m one of those grammar freaks many people rail against in blogs, so I’m rather red-faced for making such a simple mistake.
    And it was supposed to be a joke, not an insult. Craig is one of my favorite writers, he mentions his preference for quality liquor on a fairly-regular basis, and he used to be a lawyer. I’m sure many people didn’t get the joke, but I hope he did.
    And at least this peabrain spelled “sashay” correctly.

    Touche, GBSimmons.
    I’m a little overprotective of our lawyer friend here.
    Beggin’ your pardon, sir.

  10. GBSimons - Jan 5, 2010 at 4:46 PM

    I’m glad we’re both on the same page, mtj. Craig needs his friends to have his back (and to rib him from time to time) here in the big leagues.

    Well, no more drip, drip, drip!
