Vivlamore Speaks

He apparently has spoken with DW and will have an article about Kovy in the upcoming Sunday paper. The one part of the post that excited me was this....

Marty Reasoner: Expect him to be signed soon. Waddell said he is confident it will happen. Some details to work out, but it looks like he will be back.

Thank God for that. I love the Party, and I want him to continue to Party here. Also, it appears that some moves have to be made to satisfy the Czar's resigning. People are calling for the end of the world over DW's statements about Kovy, which are:

At this point I can tell you, I’ve discussed it with the ownership, with the coaches, we have no intentions, regardless of what happens this summer with signing him, we have no intentions of trading him. If you trade every player that is going to come up to be an unrestricted free agent, the way the league is set up you are going to be a free agent at 25 [years old], so we are going to be doing this all the time. You have to look at the big picture and say this year is more important to us than years from now. Florida went through it with [Jay] Bouwmeester. They didn’t trade their big guy, but they missed the playoffs. You are going to see that more and more. Where a player is 25 and he’s going to get a home run deal, but it’s more important right now to keep him and keep the franchise moving in the right direction.

I'll let you infer what's going to happen.

If Eel-ya does sign, it will only be in September, just before the season, or he won't sign at all.
