    In just one year, McVay went from being everyone’s wonder boy to everyone wondering if he’ll be back. In the bigger picture, however, everyone’s future is certain: we’re all going to die. With that perspective in mind, perhaps Sean needs to take a few years off and just watch the wheels spin….in other words, act just like the next Santa Fe coach.

    #9 On most blogs I’ve seen the public seems to be split 50/50 on Bauer regarding his release from the Dodgers. Regardless of how you feel personally about his behavior you have to admit he was treated much differently than any other pro sports athlete. Regardless of sport.
