Just random thoughts for the most part, but here are some things in the sports world that I just don't get. If anyone can help explain any of them, I'm listening:

- If the reported Howard to the Lakers deal is true, why would the Magic just give Howard away like that? They aren't getting anywhere close to equal value.

- Is the NHL really dumb enough to have another work stoppage just 7 years or so after the last one? The league has recovered pretty well from the 2005 work stoppage, and it boggles the mind that either side would be stupid enough to let this happen again.

- This is a Cardinal one, but why is Tyler Greene still on the major league roster. After five years, it can't just be because of his "potential". He adds little to the Cards except for a decent pinch-running option late in games.

1st off, I'd like to take the time to commend Mr. 11rings for taking the time to begin a news flash here at the Message Boards. It took nerves of steal to get it together and post an independent thread. Nice one champ! lol

A. I heard they'll have 3 #1 picks next year.....at least I think I heard that right.
B. Ditto, but not a NHL fan at all, not even if Milw. had a team.
C. LOL, ask StarGateBabe! She knows everything....HA!

Oh, nix my response to "A." I just heard that the Magic got basically nothing for the Howard trade. It looks like the Sixers got the 3 draft picks.

Yeah, that's what I don't get. The rumors had the magic trying to get Bynum or Lopez or someone that could have an impact. I'd be the first to admit that I'm not an NBA expert, but it seems to me they just got some spare parts for giving Howard to the Lakers.

It's funny. The same day I posted this, they traded Greene to the Lastros. I was out of town this week for work, and I watched the Wednesday night game against the Giants when the Birds got spanked and Greene was horrible. That was when I had my thought about why the heck this guy was still on the roster.

Maybe Mozeliak saw the same thing I did that night....lol

The thing I DON"T GET is how the Brewers can sweep the Dodgers (earlier) in a 4 game series, sweep the Reds this week, and then lose to the worst team in the league. Sickening. The "Crew" really needs to clean house man. Both relievers need to go, and half the line up on the field. What an ugly year, and I'm not even really a big MLB fan either. lol
