Thom Loverro has a column today updating us on the latest on Bowden. Evidently he's a part-time radio personality on a Los Angeles radio station.
Go ahead and read the column if you haven't already. It's typical Jim: some self-serving half-truths combined with a healthy dose of allegedly inside information that he's either making up or shouldn't be sharing.
He says we're definitely going to sign Strasburg, that the decision's already been made, though I sure hope someone checks to be sure he hasn't blown out his elbow before we make the pick. He even tells us the exact time and amount of the signing bonus. He says Mark Teixeira was offered more money and years than we'd previously been told, but doesn't say how much. He blames his boss for not signing Aaron Crow. He recounts a sorrowful tale of how he decided to resign his position for the good of the team. He recommends Steven Shell to the Angels, a team that knows a good deal more about building a pitching staff than Jim.
Whatever. Wanna know my reaction? I don't care. Truth be told, there's not one thing about Jim Bowden that's interesting to me now. He's predictable, inanely self-absorbed, and not terribly talented in any way that I can discern. I feel compelled given the legacy of this blog to comment on the latest Bowden news, but really who cares what Bowden has to say? I don't wish him ill, and if a radio station in LA thinks people want to listen to him talk about himself, fine. But I sure won't be tuning in.
