One of the biggest questions this off-season has been what Major League Baseball will do with the Montreal Expos.
Last Tuesday night around 9 p.m., my mother asked me how I was planning to write about the All-Star Game if I wasn’t watching it. I told her that I wasn’t writing my column while away, and that I wouldn’t write about the All-Star Game when I returned because no one cared about the All-Star Game past about 10:30 a.m. the next day.
You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
If the off-season deal involving Roberto Alomar did not signal the direction in which the Cleveland Indians are heading, then the June 27 trade of Bartolo Colon certainly did. The Indians sent a clear message that they are rebuilding, specifically for the 2004 season.
Many people brought up the point that strikeouts can only kick in at three pitches, and walks at four pitches.
