    Larkin and Lawless get a temporary AFL gig

    China to enter fall league

    NEW YORK -- China will enter a team in the Arizona Fall League, and it will be coached by former major leaguers Jim Lefebvre and Bruce Hurst.
    Barry Larkin, Tom Lawless and Duffy Dyer will assist in the instruction of the Chinese team, the first to participate in the Fall League. The United States also has a team in the Fall League, which starts Oct. 9 and includes players from big league teams who are not on 40-man rosters.

    "The Olympics give us a unique opportunity to showcase baseball to the people of China, and we are happy to help the national team reach its potential," said Jimmie Lee Solomon, an executive vice president in the commissioner's office.

    Major league teams might play exhibition games in China next March.

    Any word on whether or not the Chinese team's uniforms will contain dangerous amounts of lead?

    Wonder if he will wear his World Series Ring in the dugout?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
