2nd worst day of my life…..

Austin Kearns has been traded to the Yankees.  The only thing in my life that has sucked more is when the Reds traded him for Bill Bray, Royce Clayton, and Gary Majewski.  I am sure the Indians got the Yankees’ top 4 prospects in return but that doesn’t soften the blow.

My idol, my hero, and my favorite player now dons pinstripes.  I don’t know what to do…..


Knicks make offer to Shannon Brown

The New York Knicks might have come up short in the LeBron James sweepstakes, but they are slowly rebuilding into a solid team.  So far this offseason, they have acquired Amar’e Stoudemire, Raymond Felton, Anthony Randolph, Kelenna Azubuike, Ronny Turiaf, and Timofey Mozgov.  If they can add Shannon Brown, this could be a team that might be able to land a spot in the playoffs THIS year.

The Knicks starting 5 should be: Felton, Azubuike/Brown, Gallinari, Stoudemire, Turiaf.  That leaves Anthony Randolph, one of Brown or Azubuike, Toney Douglas, and Wilson Chandler to come off of the bench.  I can think of a lot worse rotations in the league.

Listen, the Knicks aren’t going to be a top defensive team in the league as long as D’Antoni is running things, but they will be athletic enough to make some stops and outrebound their opponents.  As for their offense, their front court is uber-athletic, they have one of the best shooters in the league in Gallinari, they have natural a natural scorer in Azubuike, and they have a very solid pick and roll duo with Amar’e and Felton.

I am predicting a 44-38 season, which will probably land them a 7 seed and a matchup against the Magic in the first round.  Write it down!

Michele Hunter and icSports

I found a cool little sports segment on Mevio, it’s called icSports.  The show is hosted by Kentuckian Michele Hunter, and it actually looks pretty good.  I recommend everyone check it out.

My Hero

I love Wally Backman.  Enjoy.


Strasburg hurt…..already

Stephen Strasburg has already inched his way closer to becoming Mark Prior part II, as he was scratched from tonight’s game.  The Nats manager says it was precautionary, and the MRI revealed no structural damage but some inflammation.  If the Nationals are smart, they shut him down for a little while with a DL stint, and then hire Dusty Baker to be their manager next season.

Bengals sign T.O.

I believe VH1 just nutted all over themselves…..oh nope, that was me.  The Bengals signed T.O. today for 1 year and $2 million dollars, and have officially become the front-runners for “most fun team to play with on Madden 2011.”

Palmer under center, Benson running the ball up the gut, Ocho out wide left, T.O. wide right, and Antonio Bryant catching short passes across the middle and racking up mad YAC. And oh wait, a decent TE for a change in Gresham?


SEC getting stronger?

Masoli is looking to transfer to Ole Miss after getting kicked off of Oregon’s squad for marijuana possession and a misdemeanor burglary charge.  He would be able to play without sitting out if he enrolled in a master’s program that Oregon did not offer.  He might be a thug, but make no mistake about it, he is a beast.  Poor man’s Tebow if you will.
