An Investigation of Area 51

Thanks to GMSV for this: So tonight I spied on Area 51

Mildly amusing.

Yahoo! News - Postal Service Seeks 2-Cent Stamp Increase

"The Postal Service filed a request Friday seeking higher rates. The agency wants a 2-cent increase in first-class mail, and similar increases for other types of mail, to take effect early next year. It would increase the rate for regular mail to 39 cents from 37 cents."

I can't remember the last time I even put a stamp on something. I think this has the potential to cost me about $0.10 over its first 12 months.

More Good News

ESPN.com - MLB - Rich man: A's give Harden four-year deal

"The Oakland Athletics signed Harden to a four-year contract with a club option for 2009 on Saturday."

Happy to have Harden around for the next few years - He's going to be our ace very soon, if not this year.

Hip Hip Hooray!

New Regime in Oakland Is Counting on Beane

"The A's are expected to announce today that Beane has agreed to a contract extension through 2012 and has been granted a share of ownership, a distinction without recent precedent among major league general managers."

That is just FABULOUS news for A's fans. I couldn't be more ecstatic.

But "Bill Shaikin, Times Staff Writer" misunderstands - "...might fans not prefer that popular players finish their careers with the team, not just the general manager?"

I'd rather have Billy Beane assembling my team than have just one player. If the choice was between Tejada or Beane, I'll take Beane. Giambi or Beane - I'll take Beane. There is no single player that's more valuable than a General Manager that can assemble the entire 25-man roster better than anyone else.
