Throwing it around

Rainy April tuesday here but still some baseball to get us by. It’s just another day in the life. Oh, and you football fans we were told an interesting nugget by an interesting source today: Brady Quinn will be traded to the San Francisco 49ers for their 11th overall pick and the Cleveland Browns will select Mark Sanchez at #5 in the upcoming draft. The only reason this makes a baseball blog is that our source is extremely credible. So congratulations Browns on shooting yourself in the foot again. Tremendous. Now the linkies.
