With Theo Epstein’s official resignation, Lew gave the new emperor of Wrigley a to-do list.  Lew also took a look at some of the international stars of today and how they would have been unknowns not that many years ago.

Following Derek Holland’s gem, Lew explained why pitching is really what sets baseball apart from other sports.


Lew let us all know that he’s ready for the Rangers to end their World Series drought.
