No media column or chat this week. On a bit of a mini-vacation. No truth to the rumor I'm interviewing for the Red Sox managerial opening right after Stump Merrill, Maury Wills, and Terry Bevington get their chance to genuflect in Larry Lucchino's general direction.
In the meantime, if you missed it, here is this week's podcast, during which I chat with Tony Mazz and Daigo Fujiwara about the managerial merits of Dale Sveum (yup, so much for that), the departure of Jonathan Papelbon, and Jacoby Ellsbury's MVP chances.
Be back Monday morning with a column on the AL MVP race. Enjoy the weekend. Also: Hire Alomar.
