Yesterday, Joe asked who was “off-limits” if the Red Sox organization asked for players as compensation for Epstein. Most, if not all, of you decided Castro was the most untouchable player on our team. Matt Garza came in a close second.
So, along the same lines as Joe, the question is:
If you could pick one player, and one player only, to add to the Cubs’ organization, who would it be? Why would you choose him (Assume that money was not an option for the addition of this player)?
Another thought: Jerry Jones is under fire for these comments: “This game was decided right down there at the end, and I am so proud of these players, the way they competed tonight.” Apparently, the underlying message is an insult to Jason Garrett. Garrett is in his first year as head coach of the Cowboys. His play calling may have erred on the safe side, but he was trying to preserve a lead. Yes, the Cowboys were playing the Patriots, and they were only ahead by three points. It was kind of inevitable that the Pats would pull out a win with that slim of a score difference, anyway. In any situation, do you think an owner support the coach he hired, or is it fine to passive-aggressively insult him in public? Jones did hire him, after all. Is he out of line with his comments?
One last thought: Last night in one of my classes, we read an article that said college kids these days barely know more than high schoolers did fifty years ago. I am currently a college student and we look at test samples from days gone by, and I will admit, some of those questions are difficult. Old(er) people, what do you think? Is school too easy for your kids? Young(er) people, do you think college is/was too hard, too easy, or just right?
