Serenity now! Serenity now! The Diaspora will be silent from December 24 - December 29, barring any unexpected news, and let's face it, there probably isn't going to be any major signings this week, next or the week after, etc. Face it, outside of a 35 year old Edmonds, our starting OF consists of Larry Bigbie and Juan Encarnacion...exactly. If there are anymore junk guys signed this week, I probably won't break radio silence in an attempt to ignore it and enjoy the one week this year the wife and I get to spend with our families. This isn't the last post of the year, so I'll save all the thank yous till next weekend and there'll be plenty of new stuff to read while you nurse those hangovers on the 1st. To maintain high spirits, the Diaspora is providing you with some "greatest hits" links: Relive Game 5 of the NLCS. Remember when Mark Mulder got his K back? Let's hope he gets those K rates up next year. Anthony Reyes should be starting for the Cards, remember this? Cards play one, two, three games in DC, and how 'bout that Marquis in game 2? Wondering about the youth movement? Check out the fine stock in Springfield. And learn more about the new AA franchise here. Be sure to go back and read the great stuff on all the other top-notch blogs from the best bloggers in baseball. Enjoy the holidays everybody! Be back on Dec. 30.
