A bitter Terry Ryan

If you didn’t watch the Twins game you missed Terry Ryan’s discussion on the near trades.

Basically what he said is that a GM came to him with a deal for a right handed cleanup hitter (Soriano?). But when Ryan showed interest in the deal the GM pulled the deal back.

I think he is a little bitter about it.

Later he was asked about possible trades in the future if any players clear waivers he said it would be difficult since they are so low in the pecking order. Then he was asked if there was a gentlemen’s agreement not to claim a player you don’t want. He answered something to the effect that there are now few gentlemen GMs.

It sounded like a shot at the GM he was dealing with today.

Did anybody else think he sounded really bitter?

Also, Bert told one of my favorite jokes. I think it made Dick a little nervous. What do you do to an elephant with 3 balls?
