Analyzing and commenting on what's hot in sports

They’re only opinions, but . . .

They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine . . .

Of all the Dodgers that GM Ned Colletti could have criticized, it’s weird to pick on Matt Kemp, who only happens to be among the league leaders in home runs and RBIs . . .

I’ve always been pro-Kobe Bryant, but yes, I thought he was pouting in Game Four against Oklahoma City. He did come through big time in Game Five, shutting down Russell Westbrook. But come on, Kobe, pouting is beneath you . . .

Count me among those who think Floyd Mayweather Jr. will have no trouble handling Shane Mosley in Las Vegas on Saturday night . . .

Don’t know about you, but I’m definitely hyped out on Tiger Woods . . .

This Kentucky Derby looked wide open as soon as overwhelming favorite Eskendereya was injured and ruled out of the race. Now that lukewarm choices Lookin At Lucky (No. 1) and Sidney’s Candy (No. 20) have landed the worst possible post positions, coupled with a Louisville forecast for heavy rain, it is clearly anyone’s Derby . . .

The player to watch in USC’s Spring Game at the Coliseum on Saturday is No. 42, Devon Kennard. He is the new middle linebacker who could be the key to an improved Trojans defense under Lane Kiffin’s dad, Monte . . .

I’ve been watching baseball for a long time, but I think Howie Kendrick’s walk-off bunt for the Angels on Wednesday was the first I’ve ever seen . . .

Here’s my personal post-NFL Draft takes: Biggest Gamble: Tim Tebow in the first round by the Broncos. You have all those holes and you draft a guy who is definitely a “project” at quarterback? Really? Biggest Steal: Golden Tate late in the second round by Seattle and Pete Carroll. Tate was the best player on the field in every game Notre Dame played, including the one against USC. Biggest Waste: Stanford tailback Toby Gerhart to Minnesota in the second round. I thought Gerhart was the most underrated player in the draft. Too bad he goes to a team that already has football’s finest runner in Adrian Peterson . . .

You know April standings don’t mean much when the San Diego Padres are cruising along in first place in the National League West . . .

Mike Scioscia can say it all he wants, but it is difficult to imagine Brian Fuentes and his 89 mph fastball closing games for the Angels all season . . .

Just asking, but how could the Lakers have gone all this time without signing a pure outside shooter? . . .

Orlando’s Dwight Howard gets fined $35,000 for something he posted on his blog? Wow, this business is tougher than I thought . . .

  1. “Wow, this business is tougher than I thought.”

    LOL. You can make the check out to me, Bish.

  2. hey…go easy on those padres. first place is first place. let me enjoy it for as long as it lasts (which might be only another week).

  3. Agree on your Derby comments, Steve. I do like Super Saver in the race, but another Mine That Bird would not surprise me. I thought Looking At Lucky would win until the post position draw. California horses have not run on wet before because of the problems with the Santa Anita track. Looking at Liucky may have run most of his races in California but is not a Cal-bred. A Cal-bred has not won the Derby since 1962, when Decidedly, a son of the 1954 winner Determine, came home. Swaps won it in 1955. These horses stand as the only Cal-breds ever to win.
