— How does Ken Macha get fired after leading a mediocre A’s team to the ALCS, where they were swept by a superior Tigers team?
— There is no stopping the Tigers.
— In my estimation, the Mets-Cardinals NLCS is basically a battle to see who loses the World Series in four or five games.
— Do you think Papelbon can be as dominant as a starter as he was as a closer?
— Will there be a market for Manny, especially if A-Rod gets dealt to the Angels?
— Has any manager ever done a better job than Jim Leyland has done this year?
— Thanks to most of you for taking heart in my plea for non-crude posts. Until I find a better solution, I’ll keep deleting you-know-who’s crude posts, no matter how many bogus and transparent screennames he comes up with.
