Maybe now the Saints will be able to afford to sign some talent that will help Williams reach the goals in his incentive clauses.

I agree with Steve Rushin's choice of Caddyshack as the greatest sports movie of all time (SI VIEW, Aug. 9). I would add one more criterion for choosing the best in sports cinema: Forget the sequels. The follow-ups to The Bad News Bears and Caddyshack were on a par with The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island.

Was Rushin out of the country or just out of his mind during the late 1980s, when three of the best baseball movies were released? He missed Field of Dreams, Bull Durham and Major League—a film that thumbed its nose at the national pastime and was as funny as Caddyshack.

Wade Owes It to the Wall
Wade Boggs reached the 2,000 hit mark nearly 15 months before Tony Gwynn (Single Minded, Aug. 9). However, he left the Red Sox shortly thereafter, and Gwynn beat him to 3,000 hits. Boggs's gaudy numbers are primarily the result of his years tattooing the Green Monster in Fenway. Gwynn is by far the better player. Boggs should feel grateful to be mentioned in the same breath.

LEIGH MONTVILLE'S article on Lance Armstrong was great (Tour de Am�rique, Aug. 9). Not only did Armstrong return to cycling after near-fatal cancer, but he also won the Tour de France. Amazing.
