So apparently Joe Torre is the classiest, most dignified, classiest, most elegant, classiest, classiest, most dignified, and classiest S.O.B. on the face of the planet. Because quietly issuing a three-sentence press release is so much more boorish than staging your own press conference to explain in great detail why a one-year deal is a slap in the face...
I'll be posting tomorrow on all things Trey Hillman, but in the meantime, theres still an interesting basebll game to be played, one that doesn't involve the Ham Fighters.
I'm not positive, but I believe this is the first time the Red Sox have ever faced elimination and tried to stage a comeback. I also believe this is the first time Curt Schilling has pitched in an elimination game. Not positive, but I haven't checked my old cache of Sporting News back-issues yet this afternoon.
Any suggestions for what to listen to while I watch the game on mute?
