The bravery it takes to be a great owner is either celebrated or reviled. I envy the Patriots' great ownership, because Robert Kraft hired all the right people, took risks and allowed those under him to make the appropriate decisions that helped set the mold for a successful franchise.

Like Sheehan, I also believe the NL should implement the DH. But I think both leagues should use it in a way that's consistent and agreeable to all baseball fans. Each league should require the pitcher to bat for himself in the first five innings, then use the DH from the sixth inning on. This makes perfect sense, seeing as how most managers already employ a squadron of relievers after the fifth inning.
