News item: John Henry renews his call for what he describes as an "enlightened" version of a salary cap in baseball.
We hear the argument for a cap in baseball quite frequently, usually around times when the Yankees have spent a lot of money. Allow me to say, then, that I disagree with both the owner of my favorite baseball team and the editor of this very publication and suggest that a salary cap is really not going to fix much of anything.
Fifty-nine days and counting...

Markopolos, for his pronouncement
today lambasting federal securities investigators:“If
you flew the entire SEC staff to Boston, and sat
them in Fenway Park, they wouldn't be able to find
first base.”Wonder why
he didn’t say Shea Stadium instead, though? (Or rather, ahem, the new and unfortunately
named Citi Field?)
