Something to do while waiting for the next chapter of the Milton Bradley saga...

As we sit around waiting for Milton Bradley to be dealt (or not), it's obvious some of us are anguishing, some of us are seething, some of us are laughing, some of us are drinking... well, you get the idea. And whenever a name is bandied about as a possible return in a trade, invariably somebody here throws up a little in their mouth.

So in honor of Bob Barker's upcoming birthday (he'll be 86 on December 12), I thought a little "The Price Is Right" game could help put things in perspective.  Of course, this will be a little tough to do in a two-dimensional blog, so you'll have to use your imagination.  But here goes...

Below is a list (in alphabetical order) of many of the names that have been mentioned as possible returns on a Bradley deal. Imagine these names are on cards attached to big velcro board:

Burrell (TB)
Byrnes (AZ)
Castillo (NYM)
Lowe (ATL)
Matthews (LAA)
Meche (KC)
Millwood (TEX)
Ordonez (DET)
Rowand (SFG)
Silva (SEA)
Wells (TOR)

 

Part 1 of this game is to rearrange the cards from Best to Worst (as in trade return),  You have 60 seconds, starting... NOW!

Ok, time's up! Wow, that was fun, eh?  But wait - there's more...  Now imagine two of Bob Barker's lovely assistants...Bobbarker_medium
...come up to you and give you two more cards:

KEEP (#%&!)
RELEASE (21M)

Part 2 of this game is to take these new cards, go back up to the board, and put them where you think they should go.  You have 10 seconds, starting... NOW!
