Strategy



Ben: Well, Jed, we have a problem.

Jed: (takes puff of asthma inhaler) Um. Yeah.

Ben: How many vacant positions are we at?

Jed: I guess 2. If we don't trade Manny. And if we keep Kevin Youkilis at first base.

Ben: (pops a handful of Tums) It seems like so much more.

Jed: How in the world are we going to find a shortstop and a center fielder?

Ben: Jedders, there's only one way.

Jed: You get the dartboard. I'll get the hatful of names.

Ben: You don't think they've caught on, do you?

Jed: Oh, no, John Flaherty and all the third basemen ever made really good sense. Really.
