GM Jon Daniels and Boston counterpart Theo Epstein talked Tuesday, but it
was more about bowling prowess than exchanging a young Red Sox pitcher for one
of the Rangers' catchers. Daniels and Epstein vied for the top bowler in the
annual GM tournament but had only passing conversation about the teams' mutual
I was a proud league bowler for many more years than I'd care to admit, I own my own shoes, and I can still sling the old Columbia Yellow Dot over the second arrow with the best of 'em, but I'm pretty darn shocked that two of the youngest GMs in the game are the best bowlers, because nobody bowls anymore.
Where's Jack Zduriencik in this? How about Dave Dombrowski? In age, geography, and ethnicity, they are way more of the bowling demographic than Daniels and Epstein. Does Pat Gillick get to participate even though he just stepped aside? If so, he'd have to be a lock because I'm pretty sure that guys born in 1937 were required to bowl by law. Does Doug Melvin -- a Canadian -- complain that they never get to play five pin?
So many questions.
