Do You Regret Making "The Deal" Brian? Check.

This Sunday night at 8 PM, ESPN 30 For 30 Films will debut a short film called "The Deal", a 22-minute film about the greatest trade in Red Sox history that thankfully never happened: the Alex Rodriguez saga of December 2003.

It was directed by Nick and Colin Barnicle, and it chronicles the drama of Slappy not coming to Boston, and interviews many of the principals involved, such as Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer, Brian Cashman, John Hart (then the Texas GM), Gordon Edes, and many others.

Noticeably absent from the film are any current interviews with Rodriguez himself.

Couldn't help but laugh at all the "Curse of the Bambino" nonsense that's dragged up in this film.

If you can't see it on Sunday, why not watch it now? My friend Ian at soxanddawgs.com has the video of the film there. Definitely go and check it out with this link.

And by the way, after "The Deal" airs on ESPN at 8 PM on Sunday, they will be showing "Four Days In October" again, just to keep you in a good mood for the upcoming season ahead.
