  1. Tony, looks like you pick with your heart. I am surprised they are not all Boston. Thanks for the token Dodger, don’t be too quick to trade Manny…we love him out here in LA.

    Best wishes,


    PS Barry Zito? What are you thinking?

  2. Zito is on the bench…Manny’s attitude is crummy. You’ll see very soon for yourself, Bill. As soon as I can discern my team’s greatest weakness, Manny is packing. :-)



  3. What, for example, does ‘3B COL’ mean? Is it equivalent to silly mid-off or short backward square?

    Bemused from East of the Pond…
