Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

Happy July 4th.  The rain is starting (how surprising..) just in time to ruin any kind of fireworks display in South Florida.  Every year, on this date, I think about all of the things I am thankful for: my family, my health, and my friends, to name a few.  I am additionally thankful for all of the support that I have received over the 2+ years that this blog has been in existence and the 1+ year that Dynasty has been in operation.  The icing on the cake this week was the signing of Robert Lara.  I cannot begin to explain how excited I am about the opportunity to represent not only a player that went to my high school, but a top notch catcher in a solid organization (San Diego Padres).  Remember all those interview appearances on Adam Taxin’s Philadelphia radio show?  Well I am once again a regular on a sports radio channel…this time it’s based in the Chicago region.  All of the latest shows will be linked on the right sidebar.  Check out some links I passed up over this busy week:




  • BaseballAmerica has quite a depiction of a Scott Boras negotiation [Deal With The Devil].
  • As of July 1st, only 8 of 30 players drafted in the first round of this year’s draft had signed with their respective teams.  The rest have until August 15th to do so [Ask BA].
