Parlor games

Excellent game suggested by Jay. Who leaves first: Sal or Manny? Excellent match-up. If you’ve been watching for several months, you’ve probably seen the odds go back and forth. Mannny was probably a clear favorite to leave first a year or so ago, but it’s been a “pick ‘em” for quite a while now. It's clearly leaning heavily toward Manny, but if he doesn't get dealt by 4 today and someone drops another dime on Sal, it could swing back the other way in a hurry.

Can we make other compelling matchups of which politician or sports figure will leave their current position first? Place your bets and suggest other matchups...

Kerry-Belichick

Deval Patrick-Josh Beckett

Doc Rivers-Tom Menino

Hmm. Belichick before Kerry. Kerry still has White House dreams, and if he doesn't reach there, will end up the pro tem, I bet. Where else is he going to go?

Deval before Beckett. Beckett seems to think he's at as high a level as he gonna get, Deval doesn't.

Menino versus Doc is a tough one. Both love their job. For now, I'd say Menino retires or has health issues before Doc has to go.

PS: If I owned a team, I'd put into the coach's contract that winning a championship makes your job secure for the next 4 years.
