-- Tracy Ringolsby of Fox Sports has Neal Huntington on the short list of GM's on the hot seat this season: "Huntington becomes the next scapegoat unless there are tangible signs of development."
-- We failed to mention that longtime baseball man Bill Lajoie died earlier this week. He was a special assistant to the GM regarding personnel. Lajoie, 76, was best known for his 23-year run with the Tigers.
Wil and I wish you all a happy 2011; may it be your best year yet.
