Last night I did a segment for Will Carroll's BP Radio show with Steven Goldman, Joe Sheehan and Jay Jaffe. (The show will air this weekend.) What do you think we talked about? New York baseball, of course. But when the show was over, we chatted for another couple of minutes and I asked the guys if they thought Ellis Burks' return to Boston was in part, racially motivated. They all assured me it was strictly a baseball decision. That doesn't come as a surprise and I think they are correct. Still, I will be curious to know what Burks makes of Boston in 2004.
