  1. Why all the fuss over Kris Bryant?

    The Chicago Cubs, as expected, sent top prospect Kris Bryant to minor league camp, and his next stop is likely Iowa for about 2 weeks, or so they say.

    The Players Association, and Bryant's greedy agent, Scott "20 Mule Team" Boras, are crying foul. All they see is that Bryant led all players in HRs in spring training games in Arizona with 9, but, as others point out, he's committed 4 errors at 3rd base, and they want to test him in the outfield. Bryant hasn't said anything ...

  2. Adam Silver & James Dolan = Roger Goodell & Robert Kraft

    Football season is over. So why does the NBA have a potential scandal similar to that of the NFL, this close to the All-Star Game?

    In case you didn't know, New York Knicks owner James Dolan responded to a critique from a 73 year old fan who suggested that he (Dolan) sell the Knicks, by blasting the fan rather savagely, suggesting that the fan might be an alcoholic. As of Monday, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver chose not to punish Dolan for this act of foolishness, this less than a year ...

  3. How the NFL can deflate the Patriots once and for all

    While the results aren't in yet on the latest scandal involving the AFC "champion" New England Patriots, the public opinion against the AFC East champs will only grow until the NFL finally decides to toss aside political favoritism and throw the book at owner Robert Kraft and his staff.

    While it's readily accepted that the Colts were totally outplayed in a 45-7 loss, the 4th blowout defeat at the hands of the Pats in the Andrew Luck era, the revelation after the game that ...

  4. Even managers are capable of rookie mistakes

    I realize that the voting for the post-season awards doesn't include playoffs. For Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams, that's a good thing, because he would've lost votes for a boneheaded decision in game 2 of the NLDS vs. San Francisco on Saturday night.

    Let me refresh the scenario. Top 9, 2 out. Jordan Zimmermann, six days removed from a regular season-ending no-hitter vs. Miami, is working on another gem, a three hit shutout, but walked Giants rookie Joe Panik to put the ...

  5. Time for this Kidd to walk the plank

    A year ago, Jason Kidd retired as a player to become a 1st-time head coach with the Brooklyn Nets. The team he left, the New York Knicks, floundered and failed to repeat as division champs, while Kidd took the Nets to the 2nd round of the playoffs.

    So what would possess Kidd, on his 2nd go-round with the Nets organization, to pursue more power so soon? Who did he think he was? Pat Riley? Phil Jackson? Please. On June 30, Brooklyn divested itself of Kidd, who will get booed out of ...
