. . . or where me, Peter Abraham, and Daigo Fujiwara gab about GM-in-waiting Ben Cherington, the World Series, and pretty much everything other than what brand of beer Red Sox pitchers prefer. I give it two days until we find out that they actually had a keg in the dugout.
A massive and possibly coherent Red Sox column will be posted tomorrow morning. In the meantime, a couple of recent links I neglected to post here:
-- 20 offseason predictions for the Sox: Forgot to include the prediction that Varitek, who really should be moving along now, would deny everything.
-- Last Friday's media column on Terry Francona's two-game cup of coffee in the Fox broadcast booth. The strong hunch here is that he does TV for a year before getting another managerial gig. He was very good and enjoyed it much more than he thought he would
-- Two recent Patriots postgame sidebars -- one on Aaron Hernandez's return against the Jets, and this week's on the Cowboys' costly conservative offensive approach -- that I don't expect you to read but I'm posting anyway.
