Eighth in a 10-part series
One of the astonishing things about online communities -- whatever they may be called -- is something a former boss of mine liked to call "synergy." Note that I no longer work there and also avoid workplaces that use terms like "out of the box" and, ironically given my profession, "let's take it offline."
So, yes, Mr. Burley, "a lot of people will be doing [it] this week... talking about the Cy Young Award candidates in both leagues," that is. Seems like we've been up to that here on Batter's Box for, oh, the whole season.
After all, doesn't the Blue Jays' entire 2003 campaign have the potential to be summarized by the single phrase, Roy Halladay, Cy Young Award winner?
Sure it does. And while the argument has raged back and forth here on Da Box, Toronto Star baseball guys Richard Griffin and Geoff Baker weighed in on the topic themselves recently.
Just keep in mind ... a lot can happen between "recently" and "ballots are due."
