The one sad sidebar is the Red Sox trying to jump in on the Royals story. Yes, Dayton Moore interviewed in Palm Springs when Theo Epstein was on hiatus in 2005. He told me that before he left two days later he had dropped out because he didn’t think that was the right job for him. He was never offered the job, never invited back, and Larry Lucchino wanted Jim Beattie. The need for attention is embarrassing. Fiction.

Wait. What? Wouldn't the Tommy Tutone lineup be: 8-6-7-5-3-0 (sic)-9? With the remaining 4-2-1 spots bringing up the rear.In Tampa he had Tommy Tutone--6 3 4 5 7 8 9
Gammons tells a great story about Fisk onSpier linked a nice blog entry today from Gammo, some good Yaz porn, especially for those too young to appreciate him. Wished he fleshed it out more into a proper article, I love some of the anecdotes he has on the toughness of Yaz and Fisk from when he was working the beat.
