Deep dish Chicago-style pizza from Masa of Echo Park (http://www.masaofechopark.com), an excellent bottle of lambrusco, my fiancee, and The Battle Of Algiers Criterion DVD. Going to be an excellent night.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all.

The Dodgers have signed Claudio Vargas to a one year deal.

Happy New Year, Dodger Thoughts and all those involved.

Some last bit of Manny "news" (by way of MLBtraderumors.com) before the end of 2008:

Agent Scott Boras left a voicemail message for Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti on Tuesday, and Colletti left a voicemail as well for Boras on Wednesday. With the New Year's holiday, it wasn't clear when the two sides would actually connect.

But at least they are trying to talk, which is a significant improvement from most of the past two months. The Dodgers made the free-agent outfielder an initial offer of two years for $45 million plus an option year at $15 million during the General Managers Meetings in November.

&Published reports continue to indicate that the Nationals have serious interest in free-agent slugger Manny Ramirez. Not so, according to a baseball source who asked not to be identified.*

the Nationals are overloaded with right-handed-hitting outfielders, plus he's 36 years old. The Nationals have often said that they are looking for players for the long term.

Lowe to keep shopping; Red Sox not involved

>> According to a source familiar with the negotiations, Derek Lowe is likely to continue shopping for a more desirable offer after the New York Mets presented him with a three-year, $36 million offer on Tuesday. <<

Happy New Year's everyone! Have fun and be safe.

Btw, Evite is going on my Obelisk tonight. They chose the busiest party night of the year -- including my own party -- to go down for hours. Nice work!

Happy New Year everyone. I'm staying in, it's amateur night. Tomorrow morning, I'll walk the dogs and look for the stealth bomber pre-parade. They always circle above my area.

Diamond is back online, and has news of two (very) minor league pitchers just signed by the Dodgers: Brian Mazone and Mario Alvarez.

On the commercial they said that is 8 hours of live look-ins with their own MLB cameras in each stadium. With analysis. Finally the baseball tonight monopoly is broken. Now I don't have to endure gammons and those ridiculous sunglasses of his.

Our traditional Dodger "Wait 'til next year!" won't have to wait much longer, now. Taking a cup of kindness, here's a toast to all you gents (et al.) for 2009: Sláinte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mná go deo!

Happy New Year, y'all!

Happy New Year from Manhattan Beach. One of my 2009 resolutions is to not only be a "Lurker," but to post more.

Go Blue!

Feels appropriate to share this somehow, given the festivities of the eve and the collective family wisdom gathered here: the gift my wife and I gave to each other came in the form of a very happy blood test.

A baby.

A new year baby, in a sense.

Which makes for a special (if sober!) celebration this eve.

Thanks to all who make this a great place!
