Though the players and the coach alike are cautiously optimistic about their chances this season, and might even do better than last year’s team, no one was going to say it. “No one thought we’d be this good,” said senior Gavin Thompson. “We’re more of a raw team. We’re playing the plays through, we’re doing long rallies. Last year was more of a brute power team. We had a lot of offense, we just didn’t use it right [at times]

Twenty million dollars per year is a lot of money, but Manny Ramirez is worth it. Ramirez began hitting home runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers last summer after a complex, three-team trade. Since then, he has re-energized the Dodgers. He played 61 games for the Dodgers, with 21 home runs and 63 RBIs. He has inspired the younger players. He has ignited the fans. The big question on everyone’s mind is whether Frank and Jamie McCourt, the owners of the Dodgers, will sign Ramirez to a contract.

There is a plain, brown, squarish car parked every night in our driveway that has become an unlikely hero to me. It’s 28 years old and of the make that, to most Americans, is the Rodney Dangerfield of the automotive universe, the low-brow Fiat. Do not even consider uttering “Fix it again, Tony” in the presence of my husband, who practically worships at the Agnelli family altar. If do you say something so rude, Gil will just stare at you before turning his back, deeply hurt by your words and disappointed by your ignorance.
