Hot Hand of God
You had Diego Maradona in the Who's Hot column when he should be in the Who's Not column (SCORECARD, Sept. 5). Maradona said his 1986 World Cup goal against England was punched in by him and not, as he'd always claimed, by "the Hand of God." Surely admitting to blatant cheating in the World Cup is not hot?

Of Two Minds
In the Who's Not column (SCORECARD, Sept. 5) you criticize the Yankees, who "underwhelmed fans by trading for [Matt] Lawton." A few pages later, in INSIDE BASEBALL, Tom Verducci praises the Yankees for a "shrewd pickup" of Lawton. Was the acquisition good or not?

A college QB who never complained about waiting four years to start, gets good grades and serves his community? I may be a die-hard Michigan State fan, but after reading about Georgia's D.J. Shockley (INSIDE COLLEGE FOOTBALL, Sept. 5), I'll be rooting on the Dawgs this year.
