Suns To Get Rid of Mike D'Antoni?

That's the word coming out of Sports Illustrated. What's weird is Larry Brown taking the Bobcats job instead of waiting for the Suns job to open up, esp considering that D'Antoni and GM Steve Kerr supposedly can't stand each other, Brown would obviously have a better chance of winning with the Suns and he's probably the only guy in the world who could teach Amare Stoudemire how to play defense.

Barry Zito Sent To The Bullpen

I just want to send a personal thanks to Fred Wilpon for not believing the hype and signing this $126million bust (who had like ONE great season prior to the Giants giving him a shitload of money).

Wizards Putting A Big Hurt on LeBron James

I'm biased because I can't stand Lebron James, but I'm still going to give the Washington Wizards all the credit in the world for going after James hard during their playoff series and calling James out for the big phony that is he. I know the Wizards are down 3-1 now, but if Gilbert Arenas thinks his team can come back, who am I to doubt him?

Carlos Delgado Did The Right Thing

I have no problem at all with Carlos Delgado deciding not to come out for curtain call in today's game against Atlanta. Mets fans, who've had the nerve to boo Johan Santana (whose been great this season) this year, are too a fickle lot and as Delgado alluded to himself, it just wasn't the right time for a curtain call (two solo HR's after going 4-for-46 does not mean he's broken out of his slump). Besides, winning two out of three from the Braves is what matters most.

Dallas Signs Pacman Jones to 3-Year Deal

Jerry Jones is an idiot, but most people already know that. But now he really makes an ass of himself by pulling this move:
The Cowboys have signed Adam "Pacman" Jones to a three-year contact with a club option for a fourth season and submitted the documentation to the NFL.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he is confident the league will approve the first trade in NFL history involving a suspended player.

The Cowboys structured the contract with incentives in the form of roster bonuses and other financial inducements designed to reward Jones for good behavior and on-field perfomance.

Lastings Milledge Is Still Lastings Milledge

A chance to clean the slate and begin anew with another team and Lastings Milledge is still up to the same ole' tricks:
Nationals center fielder Lastings Milledge found himself on the bench for most of Thursday's 10-5 victory against the Mets because he was late for work, according to manager Manny Acta.

Milledge however, entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning and had a key walk, which helped Washington score four runs.

"He showed up late for work," Acta said. "I love Milledge and he knows it. Out of all the rules I have, I have three rules that are unbreakable regardless of who you are. You can be the 25th guy on the team, or Ryan Zimmerman. At least, [Milledge] gets disciplined. Go ask Jim Bowden, Stan Kasten and the Lerners what would they do to me if I showed up late for work."

Milledge didn't deny that he was late to Nationals Park, but declined to give the reason. Asked what happened, Milledge said: "That doesn't matter. I was late. ... It's something I couldn't control. I take full responsibility."

Red Sox Curse Jersey Sells For $175,000 On Ebay

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox jersey secretly buried under the new Yankee Stadium in a failed curse attempt sold Thursday for $175,100 in a charity auction. The bid from Kevin Meehan, the owner of in Mendon, Mass., was the highest of 282 for the battered No. 34 David Ortiz jersey.

"I actually thought it was going to sell for more money," said Meehan, who bid only in the final moments of the weeklong eBay auction that ended at 12:30 p.m. "I have three young boys that I take to the games and they would have killed me if I didn't buy the shirt."

The Yankees jackhammered the jersey out from under two feet of concrete earlier this month, then donated it to the Jimmy Fund, the Red Sox's official charity that is affiliated with Boston's Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Trevor Hoffman Blows Another Save

It just amazes me how the yahoos at Sports Illustrated once had the balls to call Trevor Hoffman the "best closer ever". Last year Hoffman cost his team a spot in the playoffs with his infamous meltdown at the end of last season against the Rockies and who can forget the homerun he gave up to Scott Brosius in Game 3 of the 1998 World Series? Not to mention the many other times Hoffman has failed in the clutch and now he's off to horrible start this year and in danger of losing his closer role. At the same Mariano Rivera, the definitive greatest closer ever, continues to be well . . . Mariano. For Your Police Equipment Needs

Mets Swept By Cubs

Both the Carlos' are off to horrible starts, but I'm more worried about Delgado than Beltran. Figuring that this is Delgado's walk year I thought we might be in for a terrific season, but so far the Mets first baseman just looks totally disinterested on offense and defense and if that continues, the Mets will not be making the playoffs this year.

By the way, the fact that the Mets will only visit Wrigley Field for two games this year is an utter disgrace and a slap in the face to what was once a great rivalry.

Joe Calzaghe Defeats Bernard Hopkins

As great and clever a fighter as Bernard Hopkins is, he's never been much of an offensive fighter. Sure, he put on "a clinic", but when Bernard had his best chance to take Calzaghe out in the 1st (after dropping him) he never went for the kill. Plus, throughout the fight Calzaghe was always the aggressor, he hit Hopkins more than he's ever been hit before all those reasons are why in the end, the "white boy" deserved the victory.

Frank Thomas Raises Ruckus And Is Released

I never really thought too much of the "Big Hurt" (what a
coincidence that the White Sox won their first World Series in eons after the Thomas got hurt and was done for the season a couple of years back), but give him credit for speaking his mind when he got benched by the Blue Jays (despite leading them in RBI's last year) last week. And for that he's looking for a new team.

Congress To Investigate BCS

This investigation is clearly biased, but it's good on merit in my book as college football is in desperate need of playoff system. Let's hope more congressman catch on.

Mets Beat Nationals 5 to 2

Went to this game tonight with a co-worker so I got to visit Shea for perhaps the last time. The new Citi-field stadium looks great from outside and they've done a lot of work to Shea too since the last time I visited--it's definitely going to be a sad day when they tear down down the old park. Kinda surprised how bad the fans booed Lastings Milledge, but the Beltran and Reyes home-runs were great to see up close.

Miguel Cotto Over Alfonso Gomez By TKO

Damn, to think I thought Alfonso Gomez (who I've always liked since "The Contender") would put up more of a fight against Cotto, but from the looks of it, they didn't even belong in the same ring.

Mets Take First Series With Phillies

Listen, I'll take 2-outta-3 anytime, especially against the hated Phillies, even if they didn't have their MVP for a couple of games. But Willie's gotta stop taking out these starting pitchers so early and quit acting like Aaron Heilman is Joba Chamberlain. Oh, and Angel Pagan? Godsend.

Time For Mike Pelfrey To Step Up

With El Duque injured yet again and Pedro out for God knows how long, it's time for the likes of Mike Pelfrey (who's had many chances) to step up big-time, our season depends on it.

Hail Kansas!

Great comeback. Great shot to tie it. Great game! Missed free throws! Come to think of it John Calipari was always a little too arrogant for my liking. Congrats to the 2008 NCAA Champion Kansas Jayhawks!

Mets Lose Two Of Two To Braves

This is why I've always hated Bobby Cox: a division title means much more to him than a World Series one. Proof is starting Mets-nemesis John Smoltz over Tommy Glavine today just so he could sweep the Mets . . . in April.

Will Tyler Hansbrough Stay At North Carolina?

Memphis vs. Kansas!?! Unbelievable. But I like John Calipari so I'm going for Tigers. As for Hansbrough, as badly as he wanted to win an NCAA championship, my gut feeling says that he leaves NC for the NBA. Of course, if Roy Williams had his team ready to play, much less called a couple of earlier time-outs before they got down by 26 in the first half, I'd be talking about a different outcome.

MLB Asks Jose Canseco For Help With Steroids

It's just funny to me all the media yahoos and so-called "experts" to continue to lampoon and diss Jose Canseco as being a joke. Yes, he's hard to like, but his credibility has been more than correct on steroids. And that's just a fact. Deal with it.
