Let me get started with a rebuttal to Doc, who ripped my movie pick from Monday.
Perhaps I am a bit biased because I am a big Colbert Report fan (and, really, a big Colbert fan. Perhaps the greatest Daily Show correspondent of all time). But it's the Holiday Season! Can't we just appreciate one another's taste in art -- er, entertainment? And, a quick disclaimer, if you hate Brink picking Elf at No. 9, you might groan at the rest of my list...
I digress. Monday was a busy day around the league as a few noteworthy deals became official. Here are some of the highlights.
After hitting .223 last season, Stephen Drew will earn $9.5 million from the Boston Red Sox next season.
The AL West's newest designated hitter: Carlos Pena, who signed with the Houston Astros (weird to write that).
The Oakland Athletics signed 30-year-old Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima for two years, $6.5 million with a $5.5 team option for 2015.
The San Francisco Giants signed RHP Santiago Casilla, a reliever, to a three-year deal worth roughly $15 million, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Holiday movies, No. 8
Bill: "A Charlie Brown Christmas" I used to watch this with my family every Christmas. Watching them try to pick out a tree gets me every time.
Michael: "National Lampoons Christmas Vacation"
Clark: Our holidays were always such a mess.
Clark Sr.: Oh, yeah.
Clark: How'd you get through it?
Clark Sr.: I had a lot of help from Jack Daniels.
