Does Ted Williams have "he never won a World Series" as his middle name(s)?

even if next year's Yankees make it back to the playoffs, they will be less equipped to go deep, rather than more so

You might know something that I don't, but I'm not sure how you can say this on October 29, 2007.

For the record, however, I will concede that the Yankees are one dreadfully screwed-up organization.

Not only is Baltimore "Charm City" but it also bills itself as "The City That Reads" which is also a good thing.

I prefer to think of it as the "Home of 'The Wire'."

I agree with DMac and believe that the A-Rod issue is a non-story until he actually winds up on a different team or, as I believe, he winds up back on the Yankees.

I invite everybody to sample the charm's of Baltimore.

Dull city, but the chili's good.

Congrats to Sox' fans.  Clearly the best team this season (something I wasn't as convinced about in 2004) and completely unlikely to fall of to the 83-79 of a one-year wonder.  From my standpoint the worst thing (but I guess from the Sox fans' standpoint, the best thing) about it is that with 4 outstanding young starters, an outstanding young set-up guy and a young, untouchable closer, they're built to last.

I believe McHale was Philip "Flip" Saunders roomie at Minnesota.

In other words, he's an arrogant SOB who think that he's always right and that the moves his teams make are always right.

Welcome to the Boards, Mike Francessa!!!!

Methinks that on the occasions when he's wrong you like to "prove" that you're smarter than him.....

I've yet to figure out why you guy's care one iota about what Mike Francesa says.

I kind of wish Tancredo would stay in the race as he is probably, to the best of my recollection, the stupidest person ever to run for that office.  He's an inspiration to all of us idiots.

OKay.  I give.  Castro's a fine man.

"March of Folly" is one of the great history books of all-time and I agree that her section on Viet Nam is the best, and most corageous treatment of that era.

I always liked Todd Greene as a player.
