About Me: (I have spent 17 years in the newspaper business. 14 years as a supervisor in the ad dept of the Detroit News and 3 Years with the Colorado Springs Gazzette(partly as ad director) I have an MBA from the U of Michigan. I am French Canadian and often post words in the News in French and notify the moderator of the meaning. I realize that hundreds of thousand people from NE speak French. I politely disagree when you pulled a thread of mine that basically said: please all is ok now.Surely, to be safe I reported what I said to the moderator and the thread was taken down.It is amazing that in the most educated area in America that this thread would be considered as offensive.I wish that my B'day does not appear on my profile.

Posted 01/03/2014 11:13:59 EST
What is fun about this whole discussion is that Ben is willing to hang Boras out to dry. There is no urgency to re-sign Drew, but I would prefer it. Can't see a MLB team willing to give Drew 3/30. Not more »
