Omar to head for retirement

Surprised nobody had linked this up yet. Wonder which organization he might land in as a coach.

Wise obviously didn't catch this ball.

I had the strange opportunity to listen to both Sterling/Waldman and Tom Hamilton call this play, as I was driving home and can get WTAM at night. Then I see Deadspin's bizarre description. First, you had Sterling/Waldman saying that all you can see is the ball hit Wise's glove, then it all disappears. Waldman said we'll never know what happened to the ball after it went out of sight, and anyway, she says Wise came out of the stands with it. Hamilton pointed out that the YES Network was already pointing out that Wise didn't catch it, and didn't really come close to catching it. Then Hamilton went on a classic bender in which he essentially called for DiMuro's house to burn. And deservedly so. Hamilton credited Wise for specially NOT faking like he had made the catch. So why is Deadspin claiming that Wise DID fake like he had made the catch? And even more strangely, why is Deadspin saying that Wise came out with a ball, and so someone must have planted a second ball? I don't see a second ball in this video, or anywhere. Am I nuts?

Perez sounds off again.

Will be curious to see if he gets a standing O this time around. In today's NY Times he goes at the heart of Cleveland fan interest: The blind support of the Browns and the lingering infatuation with LeBron: "Their whole thing is, ‘We want a winner.’ Well, why do you support the Browns? They don’t win. They’ve never won. They left. You guys blindly support them. I don’t understand it. It’s a double standard, and I don’t know why. and "I don’t get the psyche," said Perez, who grew up in Florida. "Why cheer against a guy that’s not even in your city anymore? Just to see him fail? Does that make you feel good? I could see if the Cavs were in the championship, but that’s their mentality.

"RoyalsReview" departs Royals Review, ruins our notional innocence

Posting under the username Freneau, RoyalsReview founder Will McDonald bids his fond farewell. He was one of the original SBN bloggers and never stopped being one of the network's very best writers.

Barnes Up, Gomez to AAA

but the real news here is that the first comment isn't idiotic.

Youkilis Traded To White Sox

IF/UT Brent Lillibridge and RHP Zach Stewart will be going to Boston. No details yet on how much of Youkilis' salary Boston will be paying.

Youkilis trade talk: Indians "are very much involved in talks with the Red Sox"

The idea of adding a 33 year old making $12 MM with a .225/.311/.359 line doesn't excite me too much. That being said, the article notes that at least six teams are interested in Youkilis (including CLE), and that: "The Sox will have to assume most of the remaining $12 million on Youkilis’s contract and the $1 million buyout of his option, and then there is the question of what they can get for him." I haven't seen anything as far as what the Red Sox would want specifically from the Indians in return. Has anyone else seen any names swirling around out there in the interwebs? What kind of package do you think it would take to acquire him (if we were even interested in pursuing such a deal)?

‪#Indians‬ traded former No.1 pick Beau Mills to Cncinnati for cash. Mills sent to AA Pensacola.
