      Thanks so much EBlank90 for your comment. Sports today does generate so much media coverage that even non fans are bombarded with the latest happenings. As business goes, sports teams are not in the same league as automakers or oil companies, yet the players and owners get more intense media coverage than any company. Even Apple of Facebook does not get as much space in the paper, or time on radio and TV as the sports teams.

      Hi Cogerson. Thanks for the comment. Joe Torre would be great. He was a nine time all star as a player and did even better as a Manager. But at 72, Joe aspires to a higher goal. He formed a group to try and purchase the Dodgers. If successful, I think that Joe would have run the ballclub as an owner/GM. When his bid to win the team failed, Joe went back to his job as Exec VP of Operations for MLB. BUT, How about Tony LaRussa. He managed the White Sox, the Athletics, and the Cardinals. He won the World Series with the As and the Cards and even guided the White Sox to the post season. Alas, Tony when contaced by reporters for WEEI sports, said flatly that he has no interest in managing the Red Sox. Too bad.

      I'm not a sports fan, but I enjoyed reading the hub and the cartoons.

      It never hurts to keep informed about what's going on in other peoples lives.

      Great cartoons......poor Bobby was not this hard on him last year when he worked for But I am sure he will be dusting off those fancy suits when he returns to ESPN after the season ends and he does not have a job. Boston Red Sox manager in 2013? about Joe Torre......that would sell some newspapers in New York and Boston....voted up, interesting and funny.
