As the New Year approaches, I'm hoping for a long, drawn out negotiation with whomever our next left fielder will be. That may seem like a strange thing to hope for, but if Cash signs a left fielder tomorrow, we will spend the entire rest of the Winter with absolutely nothing to talk about. Now, for a blog that basically makes things up, that's not the end of the world, but it does mean there will be significantly less inspiration out there.
Cash needs to stretch out these next negotiations, leaking every little development to the press, giving us something to talk about, blog about, and obsess over until at least Super Bowl Sunday. Announce the signing on Hangover Monday, and then it's just a small space until pitchers and catchers. Everybody wins.
