Speaking of golf...Joe, it's been nice knowing you. Stay comfy in your golf cart. You'll be getting quite familiar with such a mode of transportation in the coming years. Hey, I'm sure Florida's looking for a manager and there's some great courses down there. Maybe we'll meet again when the Devil Rays come to town. I hear Florida's nice for the retired folks. And let's face it, you've been retired for the last four years.
Sox and Indians begin Friday night in Boston. Red Sox can't win this series. Cleveland's too tough. It's better to expect it up front than to mislead yourself into believing they actually stand a chance. In that case, Sox won't win another game this entire post-season.
