The Rays Tank: R.A. Dickey expected to be Traded; Jays favorite.

The New York Mets may be on the verge of trading Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays

It feels weird to even think about baseball after one of the most heart-wrenching and emotional days in recent memory, but here we are. I'm not going to go all Bob Costas on you, because it truly is not my place for soap boxing, but I'd be lying if I said my mind wasn't elsewhere as I sit at this keyboard tonight.

There surely should be something articulate and thoughtful to say, but I can't seem to find anything. I've been left mostly speechless by the horrific events in Newtown, Conn.

Ultimately, there is nothing much to say except a humble suggestion to hug your kids, your wife, your mothers and fathers. Hold them close today and appreciate life because its precious. Pray, if that's your thing, for those who were lost and those left behind whose lives have been forever ruined. Most importantly, try to be a better person today and in the future. If we want to live in a world where terrible things like this happen even a little bit less, it starts with being compassionate to one another and that begins with each of us, individually.

That being said, the hot stove must go on.
