It’s All-Opinions Day
They’re only opinions, but at least they’re all mine:
Here is what it has come to now: Tiger Woods actually seems like a better bet to miss the cut than to win this week’s final major, the PGA . . .
Those of us who were on his case early should not be afraid to admit the truth now. Angels’ closer Brian Fuentes has been money for the past month or so . . .
It’s amazing how much better the Dodgers look when Andre Ethier is swinging a hot bat . . .
I’m all for Teemu Selanne and Paul Kariya reuniting with the Ducks. They’re not only two of the franchise’s all-time players, they are two of the best guys in the business . . .
Datone Jones breaking his foot in practice is a huge blow to UCLA’s football team. He is one of the better defensive linemen in the Pac-10 . . .
That was a major confidence builder for the Rangers Tuesday night, not only beating the Yankees, but beating Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning . . .
The argument that Shaquille O’Neal shouldn’t have his number retired in L.A. now that he’s signed with Boston is crazy. The Big Fella deserves to be right up there in the rafters with all the other Lakers’ greats . . .
This just in: Stephen Strasburg is human . . .
I’d be surprised if the Chargers’ exciting running back Ryan Matthews isn’t the AFC Rookie of the Year . . .
Don’t ask me why, but I think Steve Stricker will be the next No. 1 golfer in the world . . .
Almost every preseason magazine or internet piece I’ve read has overlooked USC’s powerful tailback Allen Bradford, who will run for 1,200 yards if he stays healthy . . .
I’m still waiting for the Angels’ Alberto Callaspo to drive a ball somewhere. Anywhere . . .
UCLA football fans should be excited about Anthony Barr possibily becoming the new all-purpose guy in the Bruins’ offense. This is one of the better freshman athletes in the country . . .
If I’m the American League winner, the last team I want to see in the World Series is the Cardinals with Adam Wainwright and Chris Carpenter working at least two games apiece . . .
Nobody talks much about him, but the Rockies’ young Carlos Gonzalez has become one of he best players in either league . . .
So ex-coach Jimmy Johnson has signed on with TV’s “Survivor,” huh? OK, but here’s what you have to wonder: Will his famous hair survive? . . .
