Baseball Notes

Just got done watching the Rangers beat the Yankees by a score of 10-3, which gave me a warm comfortable feeling. As we say around the APBA table, a three-run homer beats the heck out of strategy. Now the Rangers lead 3-1 in the series. Of course, so did the Cubs a few years back.

Speaking of the Cubs, they've hired interim manager Mike Quade on a two-year contract, which seems to leave Ryne Sandberg out in the cold. Personally, I think this is a mistake, but it's not my billion dollars that's being played with, so...

I must admit that I'm enamored of the idea that Sandberg might end up with the Cardinals as Tony LaRussa's bench coach, because I think he'd get the top job there two years from now when Tony finally retires. I doubt it will happen, but it keeps me amused. :)
