Gonna try something a bit different today. The powers-that-be want to generate more discussion among the bloggers and the readers, and so do I. Therefore, I won’t pontificate today, but rather, I will throw topics out to you the readers for discussion. Here’s what I’d like to know.
1) Are the Red Sox good for baseball or bad for it? I would argue that they’re simply a clone of the New York Yankees — another evil empire, if you will — but judging from the e-mails (all from Bosox fans), many people feel differently. Your thoughts.
2) Where will A-Rod land? I think this is going to be the most fascinating topic of the offseason. The Yankees don’t want him, can’t imagine the Red Sox would, either. Giants should stay away from him. Angels owner Arte Moreno has said he doesn’t want to devote that much payroll to one player, though it seems the Angels are ready to make a run at him. Maybe the Cubs because A-Rod is tight with their manager, Lou Piniella.
3) Should Joe Torre take the Dodgers job? If I were him, I wouldn’t. Who needs the hassle. That clubhouse is fractured, the division is loaded and it’s doubtful Torre could do anything that would top his efforts in New York.
That’s a start for now. Hope to see some discussion from all of you. Time to find out the true fans from the casual ones.
