[editor's note, by Randy Booth] OTM readers: I've been tweaking with the open threads lately -- as you can see -- and I'm really at a standstill. What do YOU want to see in an open thread? Are the starter stats and the lineups useful? Do you want to maybe see a running log of big events? Let me know, because I'd like to make an open thread as useful as possible for readers of Over The Monster. Leave a comment or e-mail me at rbooth AT overthemonster DOT com. I want to make this place the best I can for the all OTM readers. Thanks, and Go Sox!
