Monday Morning Manager…Alexander Hamilton's Birthday
That’s right, our nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury was born on this date all the way back on Jan. 11, 1757.
Actually Alex was born in the Caribbean, in the British West Indies. That’s not far from the Dominican Republic where Vladimir Guerrero is from.
He ended up at Columbia University, then went to work for George Washington during the War and ended up as the country’s chief financial guy. Now he has his face on the $10 bill.
Wonder if the United States Treasury had as much money back then as the Rangers are giving Vladimir Guerrero.
Guerrero is supposedly here in Texas today to have his physical. That was the plan at least. Khalil Greene is here too after having agreed to terms over the weekend.
It was a busy weekend for the Rangers.
Anybody notice or was everybody watching football? Has any team ever looked less inspired in a playoff game than the Patriots?
1. The over/under on Vladimir Guerrero is 30 home runs and 90 RBI. Do you take the over or the under?
2. What’s your take on Khalil Greene?
3. Should the Rangers call it a winter and head for Arizona or is there one more move you feel they need to make?
4. Are the Angels better or worse after all the moves they’ve made this winter, as well as losing Guerrero and Darren Oliver to the Rangers.
5. What is your take on what the Mariners have done this winter?
