It's obvious to me why the Dodgers did not sign Steve Sax.
Sure, Sax may be a motivating, dependable, enthusiastic, hard-working, clutch performer. But, his statistics are just average. After all, haven't the Dodgers shown us this past season that the team with the best statistics will be world champions?
It is truly a sad day when a player like Sax is appreciated more by the warm and caring George Steinbrenner, than by the team he led to the world championship.
