No rest for the weary, as we went straight from the World Series to the Hot Stove League. The judges barely know what hit them.
Without further ado:
--The bronze goes to Richie G., for sharing with us one of his favorite activities:
--The silver goes to Bob Tufts, who offered a sharp take on Marvin Miller's latest Hall of Fame candidacy:
The deciding votes on Miller will come from Whitey Herzog and Andy MacPhail. If they both say "yes," Miller is in.
--And the gold goes to JE, who not shockingly had an opinion on Derek Jeter's Gold Glove:
--Speaking of Jeter, he and Brian Cashman both spoke nice at Joe Torre's charity event. Cashman also addressed the Cliff Lee matter. It's really looking like this could be a peaceful, predictable - expensive - Yankees winter. As Cashman indicated, if they sign Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Lee - which sure seems like a safe bet at this juncture - there isn't much more for them to do.
Joel Sherman wrote a good column, pointing out that the Yankees can overpay Jeter, but they can't coddle him.
--Another new uniform review from Paul Lukas: The Indians. These, I like. I especially dig the red cap with the alternate, cream-colored home top.
--Have a great day.
