If George Will wants to somehow associate baseball’s rulemaking with liberal politics, maybe he should have started with the Designated Runner or something like that (though even that is a stretch – how is a designated anything “liberal”?) Will should stick to political punditry. On the other hand, he stinks at that too. Another thread for thought: Project a Yankees roster two to three years down the road, circa 2005/6. Jeter, Johnson, Soriano, Giambi…(will Posada still be healthy?) Who else is of decent age, healthy, and homegrown (Drew Henson, ahem?)? I started thinking that the Yankees are going to have to blow out the free agent market over the next two to three seasons. It’s not going to be pretty – the big 3 of Oakland are available ’05 or ’06 I think, Pedro in ’05 as well. What do you think?
