EAST BOSTON RED SOX 2010: 89-73, third Last year in playoffs: 2009 The Carl Crawford-Adrian Gonzalez duo should cost the Red Sox $300 million, a steep price for the keys to reviving what could be baseball's most dynamic lineup. The Red Sox stole 68 bases last year, when Jacoby Ellsbury was injured. But Ellsbury stole 70 by himself in 2009 and Crawford has stolen 50 five times. J.D. Drew, in his 14th and possibly last year, has yet to play a 150-game season.

MAACO BOWL When: Dec. 22 Where: Las Vegas Time: 8 p.m. TV: ESPN About Utah (10-2, 7-1 Mountain West Conference): The Utes got off to an 8-0 start and were among a crowded pack of potential Bowl Championship Series busters, but the Utes stumbled hard with back-to-back losses to Texas Christian and Notre Dame. Utah regrouped to close out the season with wins over two tough defenses ? San Diego State and rival Brigham Young. The Utes will be relying on backup quarterback Terrance Cain after starter Jordan Wynn suffered a season-ending shoulder injury against the Cougars.

Is this representation? We elect public officials to school boards in the hopes that our wishes and desires for good education will be reflected in their actions and policies. It's difficult to avoid the conclusion that we've simply inaugurated a dynasty of bureaucrats who manage very well to keep the average district parent out in the cold. The Newport-Mesa School Board is throwing parents a bone in its recent announcement of the "parents day" review of the history/social sciences continuum.

Cars Land, the giant new attraction at Disney California Adventure, looks in many ways like one of those retro diners that try to invoke nostalgia for what seemed like an easier era. There is lots of neon, wacky sign shapes, bright colors and coffee cups as a design motif. This could all seem very tired, except that Disney craftspeople put it together and money seemed not to be much of an object (Cars Land is the major piece of a $1.1-billion upgrade of the park). The storefronts and objects show off painstaking attention to detail, even to light fixtures - one eatery sports a chandelier fashioned out of exhaust pipes.
