The Kickoff

October 27, 2005

Good morning -- B.J. Ryan -- Apparently, this Mazzone thing doesn't impress you nearly as much as free-agent bucks.

Question of the day

Do you feel more optimistic about the Orioles since the end of the season?

No! Players, pitchers, hitters and fielders need to make the plays to have a winning team. Putting different butts in front office chairs does not win games on the field of play.
