I just don't think it is necessary.
I am happy to stand corrected if this thread actually does generate any productive discussion other than whispers about Joey's knee, his mental health or his personal life. Until that happens, I will continue to maintain that this board has far more potential than to be the baseball equivalent of a rumor mag.
Would you agree, then, that we do not need these same threads on a weekly basis concerning Dusty Baker?
