It’s All-Opinions Day
They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine:
So, wait, if LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh all sign with the Miami Heat, does that mean they’ll be using more than one basketball? . . .
Andy Roddick is the Lamar Odom of tennis . . .
Go figure. Brandon Wood hits a grand slam and then, just when he has a chance to relax with the pressure off, what does Angels’ Manager Mike Scioscia do? Bench him. And they wonder why the kid has confidence problems . . .
Now that we know the gentlemen from the NCAA are holding $350 milllion in unrestricted net assets, maybe it’s time somebody investigated THEM . . .
You have to wonder what Carlos Zambrano would be like if the Cubs were actually playing for something . . .
I’m beginning to think the Phillies’ Jamie Moyer might be the first major league pitcher to start earning social security checks . . .
Maybe it’s just me, but I keep thinking Phil Jackson wouldn’t be so concerned about his health problems if Jerry Buss decided to forget about that pay cut he keeps talking about . . .
I don’t know what the problem is with Matt Kemp and Joe Torre, but the Dodgers should be careful. When you have a guy with this much talent, you have to be patient . . .
What’s the over-and-under on the number of ear specialists fans will have to visit after attending the World Cup? . . .
You tell me if Vlad Guerrero isn’t a different player this year. In 2009, he struck out 56 times in 383 at-bats for the Angels. So far, in 279 at-bats this season, he has struck out just 27 times for the Rangers . . .
I couldn’t give you the first names of any of the Padres’ relievers other than Heath Bell, but I’ll tell you this much: They’re doing a heckuva job . . .
I’m just guessing, but I have to think the Mariners’ price tag on Cliff Lee just went up. Way up . . .
OK, OK, I’ll admit it. Without his breaking ball working, Stephen Strasburg looked almost human the other night . . .
Almost all the preseason college football magazines I’ve seen are underrating Stanford in the Pac-10. Most of the beefy linemen who pushed USC all over the Coliseum are returning and so is Andrew Luck, only the Cardinal’s best quarterback since John Elway . . .
The Mike Scioscia-Torii Hunter popcorn commercial on ESPN is very funny . . .
I can hardly wait until we start getting those Brett Favre will-he, or won’t-he bulletins again . . .
If we’re really lucky, they’ll start immediately after LeBron finally makes up his mind . . .
