The Bisheff Blog
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:

Funny how when the Lakers’ big men (that includes you, Lamar) are playing well, all their other problems disappear . . .

Before the Dodgers crown young Clayton Kershaw as the ace, it might be wise to make sure he can simply be a consistent part of their rotation . . .

The Chone Figgins batting second experiment in Seattle isn’t working out much better than the Erick Aybar batting first in Anaheim thing . . .

So tell me, Sports Illustrated, what do you REALLY think about Ben Roethlisberger? . . .

The Celtics-Cavaliers Eastern Semifinals series now looks like it could be the best of the NBA Playoffs so far . . .

Super Saver was clearly the best horse in the Louisville slop, but I don’t think his Derby victory makes him a cinch in the Preakness . . .

You do have to give trainer Todd Pletcher credit, though. Not many guys can win the Kentucky Derby with their second-stringer . . .

All right, I give up. Who is Kelly Johnson and why is he suddenly hitting all those home runs for Arizona? . . .

The best defensive player in the USC Spring Game was Shareece Wright, who was academically ineligible a year ago. The gifted cover corner is primed to have a huge senior season . . .

How does offensive coordinator Norm Chow feel about this new “Pistol” offense Rick Neuheisel has put in at UCLA. Hey, I’m just asking . . .

Mark it down right now: Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao is a lock to happen. There is just too much money at stake for it not to come off . . .

Don’t know about you, but I think Tasering a fan for running out on the field is carrying things just a tad too far . . .

So wait, Barry Zito wakes up one day and he’s back to being a Cy Young Award-caliber pitcher again? . . .

Ernie Harwell, the Hall of Fame baseball announcer who died at 92 on Tuesday, was the rarest of species, someone was as great a gentleman as he was a broadcaster. In his last year as a Tigers’ announcer, he came to Anaheim and I wrote a column on him. The next morning, my phone rang at home and I knew who it was as soon as I heard that syrupy smooth voice. Ernie was calling personally to thank me for the piece I wrote. I told him it was my pleasure, and I meant it. You talk about class acts . . .

One Response to “They’re only opinions, but . . .”

  1. Clayton Kershaw reminds me of a young Sandy Koufax. Most people thought that Koufax would be a superstar if he could only learn to control his pitches. Fortunately for him, Koufax had guys like Don Drysdale to pick up the slack during this period. Kershaw has no such person to lean on. The Dodgers need someone like Jon Garland, who eats innings and saves the bullpen. What happened to him anyway? The team would also benefit from the presence of Randy Wolf. What happened to him? IT is difficult to lay the blame on the Gm because we do not know the limitations he was working under. Even though In picked Super Saver in the Derby, I agree with Bisheff that he is not exactly a lock in the Preakness. We do not know what the weather will be, and we do not know at this point which horses will be running.
