B is the blockbuster Black Friday weekend damage everyone did at the
MLB.com Shop -- consistent with retail findings over the past few days.
The National Retail Federation reported in a survey that 195 million
American shoppers visited stores and Web sites over the Black Friday
weekend, up from 172 million last year, spending about $30 less on the
average. Today, as so many people get back to their computers at work,
96.5 million people plan to shop, up from 85 million a year ago, the NRF
said citing a Shop.org survey. The time is now.

Happy Cyber Monday from MLB.com -- it's the sale of the year, and
instead of the lunchtime event of previous shopping seasons, this one is

shoppers who have been hitting stores all weekend look for new deals
over the Web.
