I wonder where Torre will end up... certainly somebody will end up signing him someplace. I could even see the White Sox dumping controversial Ozzie for Torre.
I also wonder how this will affect the A-Rod situation. I heard/read something earlier in the week that they Yankees told Boras that if A-Rod opts out, then the Yanks wouldn't be a bidder in Free Acency or soemthing like that... sure would be interesting to see if he opts out where he ends up. I'd imagine Boston, White Soxx, Detroit, and LA/Anaheim/California (whatever the hell they are called these days) all wouldn't hesitate to lineup to bid on A-Rod.
And, on a WS note - I'm all about the Rockies. How can you not love a team that is on a streak like they are? Plus, there is the fact that they ponied up some playoff cash
for the widow and kids of the coach who was killed by the stray foul earlier in the year. Very classy move.
Normally, I'd cheer for the AL, but I hate Cleveland.
And, on the off chance the Red Sox get past Cleveland, I can't cheer for them since I'm jealous of all the cash they burned to get to the world series. (lots of irony to me that they essentially are now pretty much the same as the "evil empire" they claimed to hate
So, Go Rockies!
I really hate Cleveland.
