Here we go, two of my favorite topics in one story: Topic 1. Why has Bill Belichick been SO successful? Topic 2: What can baseball managers learn from Belichick to break out? This was a lot of fun ... it was especially fun to talk with Terry Francona about Belichick and to exchanges some thoughts with Bill James on Casey Stengel. It is FASCINATING the semi-direct line you can make between Stengel's success and Belichick's.
