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 . . .

  1. If Brett Favre is smart, and he is, and if the Minnesota Vikings are dumb, which it is, he (Favre) will stretch it out so that he doesn’t have to attend training camp and he will play the last few exhibition games to get sharp. When Kurt Warner retired in the off season, he stated that he would never let his decision keep a team hanging. Wonder who he had in mind when he made that statement?

  2. Having been at the Angels/Rockies game on Sunday when Brandon Wood hit the grand slam, I started wondering if Scioscia would continue to play Wood or bring Frandsen back. Unfortunately Wood got benched. I agree Steve, the benching did not help Wood’s confidence problems. Scioscia sometimes makes knucklehead decisions, but this time he outdid himself and then some.
