Didn't it already come out in the media last week that Gillis was totally against him coming to Vancouver. It was the owner who over stepped him, and it seems to have cost him his job. But if your going to lose a job, doing so while they still owe you 8 million seems to be sweeter, than bitter. After the run the Canucks have had, won't be surprise to see Gillis surface somewhere else soon.

Too bad Bryan Colangelo doesn't have a GM job. He loves trading for ex-Suns that are well past their prime!!

Apparently the drug of chioce in major league baseball during the late 70's, early 80's, was none other than cocaine. Another speedster, Willie Wilson, was even charged with possession. There was something like 10 players suspended for a portion of one season. There is even a story of the Pirates introducing players to a coc dealer, and one Pirate leaving a game in the late innings to try to find some coccaine to buy.

No Question about it. Finally given a roster that can execute his defensive system with great results, he's showing how big he was in helping the Mavs capture their only championship. If they can keep adding pieces to this core, could be another Indy type of 'grind them out' team.

That's either a clever joke, or a sign that your delusional. If I could pick a player out of the two, it would be the player that is out for the season, not the player who disappears for weeks at a time.

Posted Saturday January 25, 2014, About: Gretzky retired after opponents warned him before hitting him
Orr was awesome. Gretzky was out of this world! I agree with those who said that they're will never be a player like these two, but not only did Gretzky shatter so many records, he was able to stretch his career out, and play until he was 38 years old. I have infinite respect for Orr, and how he change the game and the way his position was played, but his final full season, in which he played over a quarter of the games played, was at age 26. As great as he was, I think to be mentioned as one of the greatest ever, he would have to had better durability. It's a shame he was rob those years due to injuries, but that is what makes Gretzky even more special. Despite what everyone thought, he was able to stay healthy for the majority of his career, and retire at 38 after having his first season in which he wasn't a point per game player. Both were amazing players, but IMO, Gretzky will always be the greatest to ever play.

That's works just fine. Too much hype going into last season. If they can avoid all the injuries that plagued them last year, they'll be in the thick of it.

Let's start with the management team. I don't know how, in a million years, Lowe is still steering this franchise, and how long it will take for them to come to the realization that he hasn't the slightest clue how to build a team. My biggest fear is what stupid deals they'll make before being releived of their duties. They already traded our best defenseman, who is in the top ten for blocked shots.

I think they have some really good pieces to build around, but there real problem is in the front office. As long as Kevin Lowe is in charge, and hiring guys like McTavish to be their gm, they will continue to suck, because they have no idea how to evaluate talent, or construct a well rounded team. This will be the eighth straight year they don't make the playoffs. Time to change the front office personel yet, or what???
Posted Monday December 23, 2013, About: Defiant Raptors aimed at ... playoffs?
I'm glad they traded Gay. Demar has continued to evolve, and not just his scoring. He has been dishing out assists when his shot isn't falling, and together they are playing great team basketball. I'm just glad Casey is finally giving J.V. 30+ minutes a night, and with Gay gone, there's more minutes for Ross. Ross has always had a great stroke and is a highlight waiting to happen on the fast break, but the only way you get better in the NBA, is getting that in game experience.

I'm interested to see what happens with Lowry, who is in his walk year and has been playing great lately. I wonder if Masai will flip him, and what he'll get in return. After years of Colangelo, it's nice to see someone in charge who has a history of being able to evaluate talent. It's also nice to not have a player jack up close to 20 shots a game, and making less than 40 percent of them. Actually excited for this teams future. I've never been one for tanking, but I have to admit with the players that could be in this draft, could easily change the fortune of a teams future. But not always(see Cavs).
Posted Thursday October 31, 2013, About: Jays after Chicago's Beckham
How is Beckham any better than Izturis. He hit's righties better than lefties, but .254 against righties is that flattering. Add in the fact he has horrible range. The Jays would be better off letting Goins play there, as he had excellent defensive numbers. Seriously thou, if they want to contend, their going to need to do better than Beckham, who is basically just below replacement value.

Vladdy deserved better. I know his knees were gone, but that bat was so dependable. Sad he never got another chance.
Posted Wednesday August 28, 2013, About: Davis rooting for Cabrera Triple Crown
And now every hitter that has a red hot season is going to have a finger pointed at him. Trout must have been on them last year. Hey, I bet Fred Lynn was on them in 79, Cecil Fielder was on them when he came back from Japan. Hank Aaron was the worst cheater ever. No, I'm serious. Seriously. It's just sad, that ever time a player has a break out season, even know the game is a lot cleaner than it ever was, there will always be some one in the back muddering "must be designer drugs". Which is why they need to get that cheating bag of $-H-1-T off the field, instead of continuing to play in games that matter to other teams. And if the Yankees do get in the playoffs, then it's just a huge injustice to the rest of MLB. It's not just that the guy cheated, but he paid "hired" men to try and clean up his mess. On the other hand, Sabathia has sucked this year, so this must mean he lost his Roid hook up?

Posted Monday August 26, 2013, About: Can Raptors tank for Andrew Wiggins?
And there is a lot more talent in the pipe line. Is it a coincidence that all these Canadian players are arriving 18 years after the Raptors and Grizzlies played their first seasons in the NBA. As much as I hate David Stern(and I really hate him more than any commissioner or executive in any major sport), the one good thing he did was the globalization of the game. Wiggins wouldn't have any qualms about playing north of the border either. Jonas is to good for them to totally tank, but maybe we can win the lottery. Probably a pipe dream!

Posted Friday August 16, 2013, About: Ellis on Dallas: 'I don't have to do as much'
I know Jose is a liability on D, but his high assist to turnover ratio, and his ability to manage and guide offenses is really under rated. With the players on Dallas's roster, I wouldn't be surprised if he averaged 10 dimes a game. I don't know how good their D will be this year, but they should be entertaining on offence.
Posted Friday August 16, 2013, About: Red Sox will keep an eye on Abreu
He used his people and his money to try to disrupt the MLB investigation. It was the tampering on top of being a serial roider that got him his 211 game ban. The fact that he is still playing, is what is a joke. Every player took their penalty and are doing the time. Seems like A-Roid would rather throw other major league players under the bus than to ever admit that he has done enough shady things to earn his suspension. Can't see how any one could defend this piece of ****. he has been roiding since high school, and doesn't deserve to be mentioned among the greats who have similar numbers, that played clean. He has never been a team player and he has zero class. Get this A@s$s clown off the farking field already.
