"Probably Kevin Harvick [Edwards had his hand on Harvick's neck on
Oct. 9 in a track scuffle, below]. His guys got a hold of me, and we
didn't get to finish it."
"I'd shoot for Tony Stewart, or Carl Edwards, or Juan Pablo Montoya. With
Tony, after about four or five minutes he'd be winded, maybe less than that,
and I'd tie him up in a knot."
A Better Way to
When the World
Series arrives, it's a reminder of how silly it is that home field was
determined by who won the All-Star Game (even if it so happened that in this
year's game the Phillies' Brad Lidge took the loss and the Rays' Scott Kazmir
got the win). Did one extra person watch the All-Star Game because home field
was at stake? John Smoltz, who hates this policy ("Why not have the home
run derby decide it?" he scoffed), offered a better idea for goosing
All-Star festivities: a game between U.S. players and international players.
That would be one worth tuning in for.
THE FINE PRINT:
Despite the Rays' success, Tampa is still not a baseball town. Five thousand
people bought tickets for Game 8.
