The Israel Baseball League (headed by Sox reject Dan Duquette, no less) made 71-year-old Sandy Koufax the honorary final selection in its inaugural draft. Can’t pan out any worse than some of my fantasy picks.

Seattle SuperSonics owner Clay Bennett has considered moving the NBA franchise to Las Vegas. Apparently, the Hornets are still flirting with Oklahoma City. And neither Sodom nor Gomorrah would promise Bennett a new arena.
