"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

Finally - A Break from Red Sox - Yankees

For the first time in what seems like forever, all of us non-Red Sox and Yankees fans get a break from what seems like perpetual Boston - New York coverage on television. We now have more than one month before the teams meet again.

Unfortunately though, Gary Sheffield getting half-punched and then half-retaliating will probably keep this rivalry in the headlines.

I only hope it will help limit the number of replays we see of Doug Flutie catching a foul ball, and the apparently necessary showing of the clip of his Hail Mary pass to beat Miami twenty years ago. Actually, I hope Doug Flutie outlives me, because I can only imagine how many times we'll see that clip when the man passes.

Anyways, no more Red Sox - Yankees for the time being. That will allow the rest of us to focus on the other 28 teams. And it will allow Harold Reynolds to spend more time dissecting President Bush's technique when throwing out opening pitches (apparently it's something he knows more about than telling Carl Pavano to do a better job of getting out of the way of line drives).
