  5. Red Sox hire Bill James

    As reported on ESPN by who else, Rob Neyer. He will be an advisor to the team. I always respected James and enjoyed reading his books written as an independent observer. He is an "enemy" now. I don't know what it means in terms of success for Boston down the road, but it certainly can't hurt any team having keen minds in advisory positions.

  13. Should Pitchers be considered for MVP?

    I would like to hear opinions on this.. In my opinion..the answer is no. That's what the CY Young if for..the best pitcher in basball.. It would make sense if pitcher in both leagues hit..and a pitcher had 20 wins..and era of 2.50..and a batting average of 300 with 35 homers and 115 rbi.. But we don't see that...

  18. Wow..the MVP race in the AL..how DIVERSE.

    Sports Illustrated taps Soriano for AL MVP... MSNBC does not even have him in the top 2...and names A-ROD.. It's amazing the different perspectives on how an MVP should be picked. Great numbers while a last place team vs. Unexpected numbers from a 2baseman who is on Post Season team... The debate will rage on no matter who gets it..it's going to be a controversial award..

The Tampa Bay Devil Rays' hiring of manager Lou Piniella makes Joe Arcilla of American Canyon wonder, "If a base is thrown in anger in a domed stadium and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?" "With all their problems and distractions this year," says Janice Hough, "at least the Mets didn't have...

  20. Wishful Changes for the Post Season

    How many of you detest the Best of 5 game format for the first round of the playoffs like I do? I hated it when they first proposed it and will always despise it! I was so happy the day they expanded the ALCS from the same dreadful Best of 5 format to the Best of 7 in 1986(?). Then what do the brilliant minds in charge of MLB decide to do a few years later on? Yup... not only do they add another layer of playoffs, but they friggin' go back to the awful best of 5 format!!! Argh!!!! ...
