David Pinto's "Baseball Musings" should be required daily reading for all baseball fans. John Perricone calls Pinto his "blogfather", and it's no wonder why.

Bob Klapisch has more on the He Said/She Said soap opera behind the scenes of the Contreras deal, including lots of sound and fury, and some more broken furniture.
