  1. A definition of why education comes first

    You've heard by now how former Texas Tech star Michael Crabtree is holding out for a larger contract than the one the Oakland Raiders gave to Darrius Heyward-Bey. Heyward-Bey was drafted #5, Crabtree #10 in the April draft. Eugene Parker, Crabtree's agent, had promised his new client he'd be in the top 5. As it turns out, it's a good thing Parker is not in the prognostication business. He was wrong, and now has to scramble to make his client happy before he signs a deal with the San Francisco 49ers, ...

  2. In a Coward's Light

    The Philadelphia Phillies had just taken the lead vs. the St. Louis Cardinals on back to back homers by Jimmy Rollins & Shane Victorino. The crowd at Citizens Bank Park is understandably delirious. So why would at least one, maybe two, of those fans resort to a low, cowardly act when the Cardinals were at bat?

    In the top of the 7th, newly acquired St. Louis shortstop Julio Lugo had green laser light dancing around the upper part of his uniform shirt. Lugo ultimately struck out. ...

While Manuel charms the press with his ...

  4. Manny and the Enablers

    Just when you thought Major League Baseball was showing some backbone and some teeth by suspending a star athlete the caliber of Manny Ramirez for 50 games because he used performance enhancing drugs, they turn around and, because of a provision in the collective bargaining agreement with the Players' Association, send Manny off to the minors on a "rehabilitation assignment", as if he had been injured, not suspended. What a joke! And it's on us!

  5. It may be time to reschedule the WBC

    The post-WBC injury bug struck again earlier this week, as two more players who took part in the March tournament went on the disabled list.

    Boston pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka is back on the DL for the 2nd time this season. As was the case in April, "Dice-K" is suffering from shoulder issues related to his MVP performance for his native Japan in the WBC. The Red Sox, however, aren't sweating his absence this time, as John Smoltz, acquired from Atlanta in the off-season, is ...
