Great night for baseball on TV tonight. We have the Sox vs. the Phillies on UPN38, Mets-Yankees on ESPN and Braves-Orioles on TBS. All games affecting the Sox, and all having the right results as I read this, with the Sox leading in the 6th 6-0, the Mets up 5-2 in the 5th and the Braves leading 7-1 in the 3rd. Needless to say, the clicker is getting a good workout tonight.

One story I wanted to write down before I forgot it. Peter Gammons was telling this one about Washington Nationals manager Frank Robinson. While the Nats were still in Montreal, a reporter approached Robinson and the following conversation ensued.

Reporter: Do you think Gary Carter would make a good manager?
Robinson: Gary Carter? Carter hasn't managed a day in his life! Why do you think he would make a good manager?
Reporter: Well, Carter is a Hall of Famer and you're a Hall of Famer.
Robinson: No. I'm a Hall of Famer. He's in the Hall of Fame.

Yikes! Why don't you say how you really feel, Frank?
