CRM Software For Retail

Baseball knows all too sell. Retail CRM is a foreign concept to most ball clubs. Fortunately, that's starting to change. CRM software is being used by retailers to promote better customer relationshipos. It's a technology long overdue.

Congratulations to the 2008 World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies. Mets fans will be thoroughly pissed off.

Heyman

The general opinion in baseball is that Sabathia will sign with the Yankees.

They also may have interest in Matt Holliday. I don't see the point. He`ll get an expensive extension after the year anyway so why not just sign Texiera or Dunn?

Writers Block

Sorry for the lack of posts the past few days but I just haven't had anything to write about. I`ve kind of just been enjoying the World Series.

Wednesday

Derrek Lee

Derrek Lee may be available this offseason. The Cubs may be looking to shed the 26 million they owe him over the next 2 years. Could he be a good plan B if Dunn or Texiera aren't signed? He`s a solid hitter (about a .285 EQA last year) and, by all accounts, an excellent fielder. He wouldn't cost much in terms of prospects either.

Cano for Cain?

I just read this article on NoMaas, in which Lane Meyer makes the case for a trade of Robinson Cano to San Francisco for Matt Cain. I strongly recommend reading the article, because Lane makes a very interesting case, and says it much better than I can. To summarize, Cain is a young, durable, talented young arm under control for the next three years. I love Cano, but this trade does seem to make a lot of sense. The only question I would have about a trade like this is whether or not this would be selling low on Cano, considering he is coming off such a poor year. However, I think Cain is a good bounty for Cano, even if last year had never happened. Considering there is a replacement availible on the free agent market in Orlando Hudson, I think this trade is both realistic and beneficial for both teams.

Joba Says Sorry

"I want to apologize to the New York Yankees and the fans for an error in judgment and for putting myself in a difficult situation," read a statement released by his agents. "I intend to properly resolve this situation, and do not intend to be in such a situation again. My goal is to focus on pitching for the Yankees in the 2009 season."
Joba is a good kid, do not judge him by this youthful mistake.
