The smoke and mirrors on this year's model may be a little more shiney and a little more flashy and a whole lot more expensive than last year's model, but it is still smoke and mirrors.
Very good post, Mike.
When one's hopes for a ball club rely on players becoming altogether different players, the "IF" machine is truly churning.
If Eric Milton turns into a different pitcher in 2005 than he was in 2004, it'll be a good signing.
