2005 Sox Have Epstein "Bar" Disease
Can't match the level of play, intensity of 2004 club...Even with D'Lowe gone, Guys like Fat Foulkey spend too much time in the pubs...Time to face reality...
Was Ex-Indie Baller Millar affected by new steroid testing policies??
Some in MLB say that he tested negative twice, then went back on the "juice"
How about ex-Bonds teammate Embree???
These are questions that may not have complete answers, but simply must be asked...

New England Sports Hub Digest
Often falling right off the cliff...
The Texas Rangers hired 28-year-old Cornell graduate Jon Daniels on Tuesday making Daniels the youngest GM in major league history. He is about 10 months younger than Yale grad Theo Epstein was when the Red Sox tabbed him in 2002. The Moneyball movement is still in full swing, despite the problems of Harvard grad and Billy Beane disciple Paul Depodesta. The Sox use a mix of Moneyball, Jamesian stat-geekery, and a dash of old fashioned scouting to get things done. Glad to see that rich Ivy League white guys are finally getting a chance.
Leaving On A Jet Plane
If Theo wisely tries to deal the soft underbellied Matt Clement in the offseason, (Hub suggestion: Derek on the Down Lowe for Door Matt swap). Any trade talks with the Dodgers regarding Clement could then be called: Theo, Paul, and Sissy Mary.
I'm A Dancer Not A Whore
"She and Damon recently formed their own company, J and M Investments. 'I go out and find the properties, and he puts the money down.'"
Michelle Mangan-Damon had another gem of an interview recently, touching on many topics from her $green$ colored sky-world. Some of the priceless stuff included: Johnny wants to "knock me up" so that "it" would be born in February...but that she wouldn't be terribly upset if it doesn't happen, that she never wanted to date a ballplayer, and that she isn't a homewrecker because Damon told her that he was getting separated and that, anyway, "He asked me out for drinks." Oh yeah, she denies the 2004 cat fight with Shonda Schilling (despite the fact that there were witnesses in the box and it is well documented in Tony Mazz's "Tale"), saying that the two are "good friends"...and denies the ex-stripper rumors again. We can't confirm or deny the rampant pole dancer tales, but we can confirm that those "double plays" aren't real, and weren't enhanced to attract a high school teacher and his 30k a year...although with this piece of work, you never know.
"'I did not break up their marriage,' Mangan says. She has never met Damon's ex-wife, Angie, but Mangan thinks they could eventually be friends. 'It would help if she met someone.'"
