Bills, after this season, two words. John Fox. Carolina will most likely let him go. Hire the man.
Congratulations to the Seattle Mariners who set a record for the lowest team batting average in franchise history. Incredibly, the Mariners had ONE player—Ichiro—who batted over .259. Zoinks. For a team that had playoff aspirations, things certainly fell apart in Seattle.
Have to say, out of all the MLB playoff match-ups, the Texas Rangers-Tampa Rays series is one I'm looking forward to the most. Should be great stuff.
Penn State has some serious quarterbacking issues. Iowa's defense just made them look like high-schoolers.
More than ever, it seems obvious that the Brewers need to trade Prince Fielder for young pitching. Texas Rangers, imagine Hamilton and Fielder batting right after each other, and in front of Vlad. Tampa, you'd finally get the middle of the order threat you need. One of these trade should happen.
To Cowboys wide receiver, Roy Williams, who says that he is still a Pro Bowler.....ok, sure, whatever. Go prove it.
LeBron James says some of the negative coverage of him this summer—with the whole Decision 2010 Tour—was due to race. He doesn't explain how race figures into the general dislike of him—James was recently voted the Most Disliked Athlete. Charles Barkley's answer to LeBron: "....Ummmmmm......no."
In a couple of years, the Rams are going to be good. Real good.
I know the San Fran Giants are the hot team right now and they have a great team ERA, but I just can't see any team facing Oswalt, Hamels and Halladay in a series and winning.
Felix Hernanzez is the AL Cy Young. No debate. I don't care if he had 13 wins or 3 wins. The dude had 30 quality starts this season. 30. And he had a 2.21 ERA against over .500 teams. He wins the award, no debate.
For the AAPTBNL Man of the Week...it's gotta be Kyle Orton. No he didn't have dominating stats, 35 for 50, 341 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT. Nice stats, but not stupendous. Until you consider that his team's running game—ignoring his 11 yards, was 8 yards on 17 carries. Oh, and he was sacked 6 times. and hit 11 times. So, considering the Titans were setting up camp in the Broncos backfield, the fact that Orton went out and single-handedly WAS the Broncos' offense, was manly. Nice job, Kyle.
The most irritating sports "personality" of all time, is unfortunately returning. After being fired from practically every job he's ever held, including his newspaper and ESPN, Stupid cable network Showtime is giving Steven A. Smith his own talk show. Why, Oh why? The guys has irritated and failed at every level he's been on. What do they think is going to happen this time?. Unless, Showtime is a master genius and this is just a ploy for them to sik Dexter on Steven A. Oh, god I hope so. * fingers crossed *
