If this is perceived as a negative, I'm guessing the Colts will be able to live with it: Indy, despite being 8-0, is just fifth in the league in scoring margin.

What the people in Texas should expect from new manager Ron Washington: (1) better infield defense; (2) big emphasis on fundamentals; (3) wild, stream-of-consciousness talk littered with copious amounts of random profanity.

And finally, cocktails at 4, dinner at 5, in the rack by 8:30: There's an item on Costco.com right now that enables you to spend $3,399.99 for the privilege of spending an evening in Arizona with Yogi Berra and Bob Uecker.
