Titans dream draft

If you want draft intrigue, you might have to wait until about 2:30 p.m. Eastern time, when the draft moves into the second half of the first round. That’s where value starts to spike. I have trouble seeing anyone trading up in the first ten picks. Anything’s possible on draft day. When I started working […]

When you’re winning, respect is superfluous

I loved this quote from Tigers’ manager Alan Trammell: “These guys are playing well,” Tigers manager Alan Trammell said. “They’re in first place, but sitting here and looking at the division, Minnesota is still the team to beat.” It’s true, they are the team to beat. Right now, though, the Sox are in first place. […]

Trying to relax and enjoy the White Sox

I want to believe that the White Sox are a legitamate playoff contender this year. They now have the second-best record in the major leagues. If you look at their pitching, they are contenders. The defense has been solid to date. The batting has been adequate and the plate discipline has been brutal. In the […]

Accentuate the positive

It’s natural for friends to diss each other’s team. If you don’t diss your friend’s team, even the two-time defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, people might start to worry. So, as the guys gathered to watch the family film of the year, Sin City, one of my friends made an offhand comment about […]

The NFL draft: overblown

It’s time to play the contrarian and write about the reasons why the NFL draft is overblown. The expanded two-hour ESPN SportsCenter draft coverage gave me plenty of ammunition. There are no marquee players in this year’s draft. ESPN is trying their little hearts out to make Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers look like Peyton […]

Monday ramblings

Yesterday I correctly predicted that the White Sox would lose their series finale for the fourth-straight time this year. Where was my bookie when I needed him? Note to wife: I have no bookie. ESPN’s daily NFL draft preview SportsCenter show will be two hours a day starting today. I need to be in mid-season […]

NFL draft and poker

I’m a confirmed NFL junkie. I just read that 1.13 million hits were registered on nfl.com the day that the 2005 schedule came out. I had the schedule two hours early. Millions of fans are in fantasy leagues. I’m in four. If I join any more I might have to go into rehab. Some fans […]

NFL Draft noise

If you think that football fans aren’t obsessed, you aren’t checking ESPN’s schedule lately. It’s hard to believe that they’re showing anything except for Yankees/Red Sox games but it’s true. This week ESPN started on one-hour Sportscenters focusing on next week’s draft. Some of the best NFL talking heads who only occasionally screwed up a […]

The ‘other’ Sox

While the Red Sox’ fans are punching outfielders, White Sox fans are enjoying the start of the 2005 season. An 8-6 loss to Cleveland puts the Sox at 6-3. They’ve won two out of three in every series so far this year. What’s impressive is that they are churning out one-run wins, the kind of […]
