Baseball Flies Into The '80s

Elle MacPherson :: Raphael Mazzucco/SI
The best take we've seen on the news that Major League Baseball is finally considering adding instant replay comes from Why Don't We Get Drunk and Blog. The blogger welcomes MLB to 1986 and wonders if the GMs at the winter meetings are also discussing other 1986 hot topics, such as the new Journey album and Cheers. They could also be talking about the SI Swimsuit cover, which featured Elle MacPherson.
Let's Stuff The Ballot Box

Rumors and Rants have come up with a couple of interesting notes regarding Alex Rodriguez's demand (or is it Scott Boras' demand?) for a $300 million contract. First off, they're figuring out how much each of A-Rod's RBI's cost last season and comparing that price to those of several big-name players. And then, after concluding that $300 million for A-Rod is a bargain, they're looking back at the best and worst bargains in history -- and not just sports history.
