Blah blah blah


Former Cubs pitcher Jaime Moyer (1986-88) is married to the daughter of former Notre Dame mens basketball coach Digger Phelps.



In other news, I just discovered this little nugget of awesomeness:




It does the same thing COTS does (show payrolls for this year and the next few) but it also has MLBTR's arbitration predictions factored in.  They have the Cubs at $74M for next year.  That leaves, probably, $35-40M to be spent this offseason.

I love these graphs. (Except they make me want to run out and re-arrange my own personal debt)

I'm glad someone smarter than me has this under control. (Do you think they'd help me with my own budget?)
