I can’t even see straight right now

Unbelievable. I can’t even tell you how mad I am at Eric Wedge right now. Lead-off double in the ninth inning in a tie game. Peralta up to bat, and Wedge doesn’t order the bunt! Of course it is pointed out by the dynamic announcing duo that Wedge likes to give his hitters freedom to

Two games, two teams heading in different directions

I write this while watching the Browns getting handled by the Lions, and the Indians beat up the Rays. (Thank you picture in picture, and thanks to John for running the ship the last two days.) The Indians look a lot more like a playoff team today. The Browns just scored their first offensive touchdown

Dear Fausto, I’m sorry

Someone needs to say it right? You have been spectacular since the All-Star break and have a 4-4 record to show for it. Your era is below 2.00 during that span. Tonight you gave up only three hits. Two of them went for homers, even though one of them was clearly fan interference. Before that

Please sign the thank you card

Well now. It seems the Memphis Grizzlies have decided to throw 7 million per year at Darko Millicic. Wow. That would be two teams that have made big mistakes with Darko. We are sending a thank you card because that was the team most interested in Varejao, and honestly probably the only one who would

Will the punishment fit the crime?

Let me say this up front- I am not a Jet fan. What I am wondering is why the punishment for the Patriots’ sideline videography isn’t going to include forfeiting the game that they were caught cheating in? I don’t quite understand the logic to this. Sure, I think that losing draft picks is a

We interrupt the ALCS coverage for some stupidity

It was announced today that Cleveland will have an Arena League team starting in ’08. The team, currently the Las Vegas Gladiators, will move to the Q and be renamed. (Thanks to Deadspin for the tip.) Cleveland’s favorite QB Bernie Kosar will be the team president and part owner. Here is the official release from

Jenkins to stay, Gholston to leave

Malcolm Jenkins surprised many by deciding to stay for his senior season at Ohio State. Malcolm Jenkins decided he hadn’t accomplished all he could in college, and so he is returning for another year. The Buckeye corner back was projected by many to go in the first round of this year’s draft had he decided

Baseball vs Football

Remember that old George Carlin routine? [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YphEUa5LPjM] Well we can add something else to Mr. Carlin’s list. In football, we really don’t care if you cheat. In fact we reward you with accolades. Bill Belicheat was awarded the AP’s Coach of the Year honor today. Now this is hardly surprising, considering the Patriots’ unbeaten regular

So what did we learn…

In my opinion not a lot. (No, I haven’t digested the whole report yet.) But here are the players that have not previously been implicated. Larry Bigbie, Kevin Brown, Jack Cust, Chris Donnels, Matt Franco, Eric Gagne, Matt Herges, Glenallen Hill, Todd Hundley, David Justice, Chuck Knoblauch, Tim Laker, Mike Lansing, Paul Lo Duca, Kent

They fear the vest!

Seriously…does anyone want to coach Michigan? This morning’s report that Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano has decided to stay at Rutgers instead of accepting the open job at Michigan has to be disheartening for the big blue alumni and fans. Even before Lloyd Carr’s retirement presser it was a foregone conclusion that LSU’s Les Miles
