1. Neyer has a good column on the A's today, over on ESPN.com.
2. Speaking of the dot com, Tony Gwynn will be having a column there too, in addition to doing games. His first one was about Bonds, which was posted today.
3. ESPN radio now has a baseball show Saturday afternoons, 3-7 (ET), with Ravech and Dibble. A baseball version of the popular around the NFL radio shows done by ESPN and many local stations.

"The best reason for committing loathsome & detestable acts -and let's face it, I am considerably something of an expert in the field - is purely for their own sake. Monetary gain is all very well, but it dilutes the tastes of wickedness to a lower level that is obtainable by anyone will an overdeveloped sense of avarice. True and baseless evil is as rare as the purest good - and we all know how rare THAT is." - Acheron Hades, THE EYRE AFFAIR by Jaspar Fforde
I caught about 30 minutes of Dibble and Ravech on Saturday. Dibble comes off as such a buffoon, that even if he said something coherent, it would probably be wrong. HE reminds me too much of Fred Flintstone, too.
He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.
Other examples of micromanagement would be Bobby Cox’s use of Javy Lopez. In every game that Greg Maddux pitches, Javy has to sit on the bench. Henry Blanco is used as Maddux’s personal catcher instead. No wonder Maddux isn’t winning many games.
