    Perhaps it's time to find a more exciting team to follow.

    Or not.

    Stars generate interest. Everybody in town knew the day of the week Pedro was pitching. It was an event. Sale had that. Mookie has star power. This roster doesn’t have anything close to that.

    Of course stars don’t always translate to winning. The Red Sox trotted Hall of Famers out into left field to stand in front of the Monster for 50 consecutive seasons and gathered exactly 0 rings during that time...

    Winning generates interest. It the team is winning, fans will watch whether the team has any superstars on it or not.

    Superstars will typically sell tickets. This is a problem that we had with Lucchino. He wanted those shiny new toys that would put fans in the seats. While superstars may or may not translate to winning, the philosophy of signing players to draw fan interest is not a very good practice, IMO.

    I don't think he'll go away. He has an uncontrollable urge to start a thread every time a thought pops into his head.

    Bored. Other discussion topics related to baseball are lacking.

    I could start a thread about my disappointment in missing out on David Dahl for$3mill...

    There's been some on and off talk for awhile about starting an announcers thread. Is that something people would be into?
