1) Great article on Dave Roberts in today's Times. (Nice photo, too.) I guess I hadn't realized just how badly he wanted to be in the starting lineup, and to live in California. Note to self: get off your ass and make the trip down to Petco Park.
2) The more I think about it, the happier I am with getting Graf-and-niño. Sox gave up basically nothing, and now have more than just a stopgap solution to the Bellhorn injury.
3) Now all Theo needs to do is convince Terry Ryan he really wants Kevin Millar. It's possible -- he took on Bret Boone, who is far worse this season. If he doesn't bite, a little inaudible muttering should do the trick: "How about J.C. Romero for Mlllrrrr?"
