Just my opinion on a variety of things....
Is it just me or does anyone else wonder how the President of the United States has enough time to go on ESPN and with the insight of those who get paid for a living to follow the college game elaborate so eloquently and with such insight into the 64 participants in this years version of March Madness?
At a time when the nations unemployment rate hovers above 11%, with strife and conflict in the middle east and with Health Care Reform in the balance should the President have so much time on his hands? Better yet if George Bush had been on television handicapping the baseball races during 911 what would have been the media's stance?
On the Ron Washington front all I hear is that he is well liked, respected and knowledgeable but how plausible is the "just this once" posture? How did that potato chip commercial go?
Michael Jordan...new owner of the Charlotte farnchise in the NBA. Is this not the same Michael Jordan that is reported to have a huge gambling issue? If Charles Barkley tried to buy an NBA team would he be approved by the League?
Elijah Dukes is released by the Nationals and the quote from the Team President, Stan Casten is:
"He never got any of the bad headlines everybody feared when he came here, and I think he deserves credit for that," Kasten said in a telephone interview. "If anyone says there was an incident, that person has no idea what he's talking about."
So let me get this straight a week ago he was scheduled to be your starting RF'er and today he is released and there is no baggage?
When the Yankees traded for Javier Vazquez I was very upset that they gave up Aroyds Vizcaino a 19 year old RH pitcher that I think has the potential to be the future "Ace" of any big league staff.
Now, after watching the Yankees complete butchering of Joba Chamberlain's potential, I understand the move.
The Yankees are completely and utterly inept at devleoping pitching talent and they are aware of this.
They send him to the Braves, who really know what they are doing with young pitchers, and let the Barves bring him along. Once the kid becomes a stud and he becomes eligible for free agency the Yankees can reclaim him. The Yankees version of a very expensive "Rule 5"....
