So someone inside the Red Sox organization popped off at the mouth about the type of coach they'd want to replace Terry Francona. And...?
Every day, I'll take you through the gamut of the must-read daily sports page, offering the details of a soon-to-be-circulating story and providing analysis (that I'm praying will make the rounds similarly).
Here's what's on today's slate:
Why a behind-closed-doors quip about the type of manager the Boston Red Sox said they'd seek in replacing Terry Francona isn't the real story behind the Bobby Valentine hire.
Why the intricacies and obstacles outlined in a beautifully crafted LA Times piece today will NOT keep the Jacksonville Jaguars from filling the soon-to-be-stocked Farmer's Field in downtown LA.
Why Steve Kelley of the Seattle Times is actually justified in writing about one of the two seemingly non-story subjects that appear in his "(Former Texas Tech head coach) Mike Leach is the perfect coach for Washington State" column.
(Hint: We're more interested in the one that isn't cold, soggy and miserable.)
Why Andy Reid won't be fired, and why fanbases in Philadelphia and beyond should stop calling for coaches' heads.
