Handicapping the St. Louis Cardinals manager race?
Tito Francona (3 to 1) – The biggest free agent manager and most experienced candidate, Mr. Francona interviewed this week in Cincinnati. Called the experience a chance to talk baseball with the Cardinals search committee. Probably didn’t ask if the new Busch Stadium had an actual Busch tap in the Cardinals dugout...
One thing that really bothers me is when people give scouting reports on prospects they have never seen. It’s hard to take someone seriously when they speak so confidently and make such bold predictions about a prospect when they have no idea about the player’s skill set.

Frazier and Ali fought wars in the ring. There is no question that Joe Frazier was one of the greatest boxers of all-time. He knocked down Ali, and the two engaged in one of the greatest matches of all-time; the Thrilla in Manila. The best part was they were also good friends. RIP Joe Frazier.
Here are tweets from Doc Gooden today about Jose Reyes:
Joe Frisaro of the Palm Beach Post says free-agent 1B Albert Pujols is in Miami today to meet with the Marlins today, which give him a tour of the new ballpark.
