Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

News in a Flash

These guys are fun to watch. KG has added an infectious dose of enthusiasm and energy to this long downtrodden ball club. Ainge, ya finally did right.

Joe Torre rejected the NY Yankees' $5 million one-year offer officially ended his time in pinstripes. Who will be the next manager? Either Donnie baseball or Tony LaRussa, IMHO.

If you're wondering why Torre rejected the offer, it's because the one-year contract renders him a lame duck coach. Subject once more to threats and speculation. Should there be any malcontents on the team, they can razz the manager no end without fear of reprisal since he'll be out any way.

So good move, Joe. And from the bottom of my blue and pinstriped heart (there's ome LFC red in there too), thanks! Grazie per il vostro tempo, a New York. E 'stato un giro fantastico.
