The only thing Sabes loves more than outfield D is first base D. Sad but true.

Count me as against a Cain deal. I don't see why you would take a big hit on pitching to get a bat when slotting in Kirk Reu..I mean Madison Bumgarner and his 85 mph fastball is by no means guaranteed to hold down the fort. They'd be better off getting out the checkbook and buying a hitter.

I like it actually. Relatively light on the faux-asymmetry, and a modern design. A brick and steel ballpark would look ridiculous in Miami, a place with neither a good baseball tradition nor an abundance of brick and steel buildings (at least from what I\'ve seen). Some more art deco touches to echo South Beach would be cool though.

I\'m not hoping it was a slip of the tongue. On a Hot Stove last week they talked about the greatest free agent signings ever, and put Andre Dawson for the Cubs high on the list, because he \"surprisingly received only one good-faith offer\". I almost did a spit take when I heard that.

\"the author concludes with an ending of \"we\'ll never know\".\" Yeah, I wish Rob would take a stand and stop waffling. I read his book on blunders and generally liked it (well-researched, entertainingly written - typical Neyer hallmarks). But in most of his blunders, he spent the second half of his essay defending the blunder as not really being a blunder. Well, if it\'s not a blunder, why are we here?

Actually, while I hate CHB with the white hot intensity of a thousand suns, Shaughnessy usually puts together a pretty good Hall of Fame ballot. The key is he delegates some of the responsibility to a baseball historian he knows, and discusses it with him before he puts together the ballot he\'ll submit. Jim Rice is the big exception to this, and its resultant infantile CHB articles. But that\'s more easily explainable by homerism. I don\'t think there\'s too many Red Sox fans who actively oppose Jim Rice getting into the Hall - even if I don\'t think he\'s qualified, it\'s still a lifelong Red Sox player getting in.

I call shenanigans. I\'ve been in more than a few traffic jams trying to see a Sox game at the Coliseum.

\'Just a reflection of how much time the Giants must have on their hands as their first post-Bonds season peters out about as ignominiously as it was expected to.\' Pardon? I remember this website CONVINCED the Giants would lose 100 games, if not more. I\'m hardly a fan of Sabean, but the Giants were alright this year and actually improved their record by a game. At the start of the season they were the most hopeless franchise in baseball, by the end that\'s clearly proven not to be true. Can\'t we just call a lame PR stunt a lame PR stunt, rather than try and fit in snarky digs which actually do not really work?
