Some great links - would it be possible to have the links open in a new window or tab instead of taking us out of BP?
Thanks!

"Yankees-Red Sox is going to be Yankees-Red Sox regardless," says former Boston outfielder Coco Crisp, now with the Oakland Athletics, "but the Rays have brought somewhat of an isosceles triangle to the mix."

Why isosceles? Are the Rays the short side?

Also, I'm no geometrician, but how can you have "somwhat of an isosceles tirangle"? I thought triangles either were isosceles or they weren't.

I'm not computer savvy enough to answer that question but I'll check in with our technical people and see if they can make that possible.

Thanks - I always forget that. In general, it is good web-practice to make sure that your customers are never diverted away from your product. External links should always be to new windows.

Please never include an article by Dan Shaughnessy again. He's just terrible. Thank you.
