Jake Peavy is a Dick (and other news)

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2720716

All right, I'll admit. I am posting this diary simply for the joy of getting to use the above title. Whether or not Mr. Peavy is truly guilty of dickishness is up to how one interprets the story.

In my estimation it is unusual for police officers to arrest ballplayers over parking unless there is a considerable amount of belligerence i.e. dickishness coming from the ballplayer in question, or the dispute took place outside of a strip club.

Then again this is post 9/11 America and this minor fracas did occur at an airport.

Then again this is Jake Peavy we're talking about, not Mushin Muhammad.

Perhaps the officer at the scene was of the persnickety variety, like say, Dennis Franz's brother in Die Hard 2?  

Either way, since Peavy tried to buy his way out of the problem, I say he's a dick and should've obeyed the airport's parking rule like the rest of us mere mortals have to, and I sincerely hope he has to serve a jail sentence, and I choose when the Cubs go on their west coast road trip in 2007.

As far as other news, here you go:

Keith Foulke signs with the Indians (and the crowd goes...mild).

The Indians's offseason bullpen plan of signing as many washed-up former closers as they can is virtually complete (insert Jabba-ish cackle here).

Something tells me the Tribe wish they would've kept Bob Howry. Or even Jose Mesa. All right, maybe not Mesa.

Orioles sign former Cub standout Jason Dubois.

The dream of re-assembling one of the all-time great outfields in baseball history, that of the 2005 Chicago Cubs, is now only missing Jeromy Burnitz (insert Official Baltimore Orioles Offseason Anthem here).

And finally, HOORAY, a CUBS SIGNING!

I say who? Chewie however, gives his roar of approval.
