Posted Tuesday February 19, 2013, About: Manziel's classes? Online only this semester
Right this down BIG PLAIN AND STRAIGHT (barring an injury or massively bad season)............ Mr Manzel will not be enrolled in AAAANNNNNNYYYYYY classes for the Spring 2014 semester. Also, A&M should be glad about that. He is an NCAA infacton ticking time bomb.
Posted Friday November 30, 2012, About: Hamilton more attractive than ever to Philly
Sorry, but Hamilton has NEVER been part of the Philly organization. Drafted #1 overall in 99 by the then Devil Rays, went thru his hell, Rule 5 Draft Pick of Cinci in 2006, traded to Texas in 2007 and been there ever since.
Posted Friday November 09, 2012, About: Cubs up for a blockbuster Castro-for-Upton swap?
Andrus, Profar....so far I have named 2, which may be why he could not name 1 is that there are 2 on the same team
Posted Friday July 27, 2012, About: The most interesting GM in baseball (for now)
That is actually an Anaheim Angels logo (of whereever they CLAIM to be from). He was being interviewed sitting infront of the Rangers dugout before a game in Anaheim. Go back to the beach and work on your tan.
Posted Thursday July 26, 2012, About: Big week in Irish recruiting includes Torii Hunter Jr.
Way to read the article. It says Prosper (Texas) High School, which is just north of Dallas. Why is he looking at leaving Texas, the Texas schools know his record and most are steering clear.
Posted Thursday July 05, 2012, About: McCoy ready to fight for Browns job
He compeleted the pass, didnt he? Which if I am not mistaken was what he started. This was only after the terrible O line gave him no protection and he had to by time to find an open reciever. Oh, and by the way, he finished that game. Should not have, but his coach/trainers were to stupid to notice (AND follow the NFL rules).
Posted Saturday March 10, 2012, About: Yankees may have to choose between Cano and Granderson
Granderson has huge holes in his swing that will only get worse as he ages. CF are easily replaceable, power hitting second basemen with a sweet swing are very very very few. If they are serious about getting under the 189 mark, Granderson is the most likely candidate for letting walk.
Posted Friday February 17, 2012, About: Inge now wants to play second, Leyland hopeful
Leyland said the magic word IIIIIIIIIIFFFFFFFFFFFF he can play defence and IIIIIIIIIIIFFFFFFFFFFFF he can hit, he can win the job. Since it has been 2-3 years since he has done either, Leyland is not holding his breathe. He palys hard and gives it all he has so yes its refreshing. But he is just not that good anymore.
Posted Thursday November 10, 2011, About: Angels interested in Fielder and Pujols
If they are not your #1 target, you wont get them. Plain and simple. (lesson #1 for the New GM) Plus Moreno already said that their playroll will not increase next year. To afford them you would have to dump Morales, Kendrick, Izturis, and Mathis at least. (lesson #2) Soc will not let you get rid of Mathis (lesson #3) Angles claim to be interested but wont open the checkbook just to give the fans a flase hope. (lesson #4) Soc is King, Soc is King, Soc is King (lesson #5)
Posted Friday October 14, 2011, About: Rangers ready to throw riches at Sabathia
Rangers pulling a Cashman on Cashman. I love it!!! Drive up the price because you know the Yanks wont lose the bidding war.
Posted Saturday October 01, 2011, About: Yankees may start Burnett in Game 4
These two teams have the best aces, but after that its a bunch of negative dueces.
Posted Monday May 02, 2011, About: Sooners may have another first-rounder in Jones
If Jones is a first round pick, its more a statement on the lack of QBs in the next draft and so many teams being STUPID and reaching for late round QBs in the first/second round (see Netwon, Locker, Kapernick). I live in OK and know several knowledgeable OU fans and they dont even count Jones among Top 10 QBs in the nation. He cant stand in the pocket during a decent pass rush and will be murdered behind a bad Oline at the pro level. His stats are so good because of the team around him and coaches that know how to use their team strengths to exploit the other teams weakeness.
Posted Monday January 24, 2011, About: Ryan: Rangers' 2011 team better than '10
Cliff Lee did well for the Rangers after being traded in early July but his 4-6 record and 3.98 ERA were NOT the reason that they won 90 games last year. Lee was the reason they beat Tampa and turned the pinstripes yellow. The team is better now that at the same point as last year. IF Hamilton, Cruz, and Kinsler stay healty (yes huge IF) and they get reasonalbe pitching, 95 is not unrealistic. Winning the pennant and series, is much less realistic without Lee.
Posted Wednesday December 22, 2010, About: Angels' offer off table for Beltre?
They would move Young to DH and get a HUGE upgrade in defence with Beltre at 3rd. Of course saying that is easy, actually moving him for the 3rd time in 6 years is a different story.
Posted Wednesday October 20, 2010, About: Cowboys owner: I believe in Wade Phillips
Keep drinking the Koolaid so you will soon pass out and only have a headache when you wake up.

Translation...."I still have Wade puppet strings. I will cut them as soon as I have another puppet ready to go (see Garrett)."
Posted Tuesday September 21, 2010, About: Hamilton to miss rest of regular season?
First, before you start criticizing Josh...learn the facts of his case.

1. He can take NO pain mediaction other than Tylenol, anti-inflammatories (Advil, Aleeve, Celebrex, etc), and corticosteroids (cortisone shots, Methylprednisolone, etc). Thus, he has tried a combo of these, accupuncture, chiroptactory, ICE/HEAT, and any other allowable method. This is all due to his drug history and he has even higher standards than MLB allows. I want to see a single NFL player play every down of a 16 games season WITHOUT a single Lortab. It would NEVER HAPPEN!!! Remeber Farve's stent in rehab but is now allowed to take painkillers again and thus the only way he can still play today.

2. Did you see the play that caused the injury? He was running full speed when he caught the ball and crashed into the wall without slowing up. How many recievers get cold feet and short arm a caught when going over the middle?

3. When he hit, his arm got caught between his body and the wall causing his elbow to slam into his ribcage. All wtihout pads. How many QBs would return to a game doped up on pain killers and without a flack jacket after getting hit in the ribcage.

4. For a power hitter to generate their power, it starts in their legs, goes up to their back and then to the ribs and finally to the arms. The amount of torque in their ribs on every swing is huge. For a power hitter to return but not be able to drive the ball out of the park is like a QB coming back into a game not being able to throw the ball more than 10 yards downfield - pointless.

5. Josh is the first to admit that he does not heal as fast as someone else his age because of his past drug abuse.

FYI - My sources...His autobiography, Beyond Belief, (worth the read); reading article after article, my cousin who works for FSSW; and my pharmcy degree
