anybody read the SI article about him - I guess it's an exceprt from a new book called "Moneyball."

Very impressive - no wonder he's the best. I saw Zito pitch in college - it's strange that some people didn't want to draft him that high because he wasn't in highschool. KW and his scouts should read and learn.

I just bought the book. So far, it's great. I urge everyone to read it.

The Sox scouts have found their own diamonds in the rough; Mark Buehrle is the most prominent example.

Minor league system was fine when KW was in charge; I'm all for putting him back in his old position.
