Tyler Kepner has an interesting piece about the Sox in The Times. Alex Belth of Bronx Banter asks some thought provoking questions about the article. But I want to highlight Lucky Larry's comments. When describing the difference between the Sox and MFY, he says

"Besides light and darkness, good and evil?" Lucchino said, laughing. "Sorry."

and comparing statistical analysts employed by other MLB clubs...

"We don't have a Bill James apostle. We have Bill James."

I am not a big fan of LL, but these one liners made me laugh out loud.

BTW, an excellent article on Paul DePodesta and the A's way of doing business - kind of a mini-Moneyball. Thanks to Clutch Hits of Baseball Primer.

McCourt should hire DePodesta. It would of course strengthen the Dodgers but for us, Sox fans, it weakens the A's. Billy Bean will have to find a replacement. As Bean said to J.P. Ricciardi after being hired as the Jays GM, "you need to find your Paul." J.P. did and hired Keith Law formerly of Baseball Prospectus (I highly recommend every baseball fan subscribe to BP Premium). Unfortunately, Beane may have an in-house replacement named David Forst. I guess we can hope for a bit of lost productivity in the time of transition. Okay, I am just throwing darts in the dark. The A's minor league baseball talent is just as deep as their front office talent. The Sox are starting to catch up on one front - In Theo, We Trust.
