I wrote a piece for The Faster Times the other day wondering about what would be happening in the Derek Jeter contract saga if there weren't Alex Rodriguez's contract in the picture. Check it out here.
Also, my Red Sox friend Sully of Sully Baseball interviewed me yesterday for his podcast. It was great fun to talk to him -- we actually have very similar takes on sports, despite the teams we root for. One of Sully's main points over the years is how Boston fans and New York fans have more in common than you'd think. For example, the baseball season never ends in these areas -- fans talk 24/7 about their teams, even in the dead of winter. You go to most other parts of the country, and that isn't the case.
Will let you know when you can hear the podcast. It should be very entertaining.
