    Not sure that I could look at that facial hair every day for a full season. Youkilis is tough enough. The Red Sox dugout is going to look like a Provincetown cabaret club circa 1979.

      Youkilis is sporting a rather uncouth unhygienic looking ensemble. Maddux has this nasty deviant-looking thing going, which I really don’t want to get into right now. I know the weather is turning, but I wouldn’t think purchasing a trench coat would be a good idea…

    Good Pitching Coach = Bad Manger

      “Manger”…you mean like where Jesus was born?

      Seriously though…where’s the correlation between pitching coaches and managers?

        As I’m told….Actually born in a stable.
        But one of life’s greatest mysteries is why he was placed in an animal feeding trough after birth.
