Two thoughts from a...

...(very) casual -- and, admittedly, not well-informed -- sports fan:

1) How the heck did Holy Cross get to the NCAA basketball tournament with a losing record (and not even one victory on the road in the regular season)? I know, I know: the Crusaders won the Patriot League tournament, earning an automatic bid to the Big Dance. But still, shouldn't you at least have a winning record to earn the chance to play for the national championship? If not, what is the regular season for, just playoff seeds?


2) What kind of a world is it where a .207 hitter not only makes $13 million a year, but can also walk away from it?
