    Here is to hoping that Mr Rushdi has enjoyed his vacation and writes another article soon... I am getting excited with opening day. I wish I could make it but unfortunately have to work that day. Who do you think should start in center? I think the rotation should be bernidina and morgan in center with morse the mainstay in left. I am still not a fan of Ankiel and nothing he has done this spring has changed my mind. I read that Ankiel is set to be the opening day starter and am confused to why he is such an attractive option.

    Hey Farid,

    Here are two baseball stories I thought you might enjoy reading. The first is a behind the scenes look at putting together the Mets new Hall of Fame and museum with the help of collectors and guys down at Cooperstown, and the second is an interview with the man who owns the Mookie Wilson ball that got through Billy Buckner's legs. It is a pretty good story that I hope all baseball fans will enjoy.

    Inspired by J.R. Richard, I decided to choose one player from each team who's number deserves to be retired. Take a look when you get a chance, and let me know what you think.
