Michael Young, best SS in the majors?

Young is good, but certainly not the best. If you wnat to talk about the "nice guy" factor, then Jeter has him beat there too- as he donates time and money to numerous good causes. Untill Young wins a championship, or even plays well in the playoffs, I dont think that he can be coined the "best".

How long, on average, is a baseball actually in play during a ballgame?

Most people who see baseball as boring dont understand it. The average fan wouldnt pay attention to the signs, shifts, etc. that actually take up most of the time.

Cheaters

Calling Jordan a cheater makes me sick. He had some tricky moves, but to coin him as a cheater is a bit much. Secondly, Reggie Bush shouldnt be on the list either. Bush donates money to all of the Katrina relief funds, and forces his sponsors to donate millions to New Orleans. Bush didn't really do anything that dosent happen routinely with the push, but thats just my opinion.

NFL Refs

Perhaps, an incentive could be offered for better officiating. Along with the new uniforms, comes a new rule. Whenever a ref makes a bad call, which will be judged by a panel of average veiwers, that ref removes one peice of clothing. The incentive therefore, if you make good calls, you will not be naked in front of the veiwing public. You would actually want ot see those guys naked? Most of them are ready for AARP.

There is a major difference between exercising your freedom of speech and exercising your poor taste and bad judgement. I just hope when Lowell is on his death bed, there's someone out there wanting to tell the world how happy he is that Lowell will soon be dead. You make a good point, very strong words at an akward time. I dont know if I really agree or disagree with him.

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

The point was that Bernie did a good job filling in for Sheff and Matsui. Matsui will be back sooner than later, so why do they need Abreu? Melky, Bernie, and Damon are ok- for now. If you think that the difference between making the playoffs or not depends soley on Abreu, maybe thats one thing, but the Yankees have played some good ball lately. Lastly, I never compared Bernie to A Rod, I just that Bernie could fill in for Matsui for another couple of weeks- rather than taking on Abreu's contract.

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

You know who else has a .280 AVG? Alex Rodriguez. Are you going to tell me that Bernie Williams is as productive as Alex Rodriguez? That why OPS (.882 vs .754) is a better measuring stick. Yeah, but A Rod makes $25 million dollars, while Bernie makes 1 million. Batting average is important when you talk about a guy who dosent hit for much power anymore. And yes, aside from Castillos ability to steal bases, Williams and Castillo are comprable in terms of talent. Point is, adding Bobby Abreu wasn't a necessity. He's a luxury to have on a team. Even if Matsui doesnt come back for an entire month, you have Giambi, Cano, Jeter, A Rod, Posada, Damon, Melky, and Williams in the same lineup. Even without Abreu, the Yankees have a good lineup. You can argue that Williams isnt great in the field, dosent swing the bat well, whatever. but Abreu isnt something that the Yankees "needed " to do in order to make the playoffs.

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

The only "pleasant surprise" about Bernie Williams is that the opposing teams are "pleasantly surprised" to see him in the field at game time. Williams signed a one million dollar contract, thinking that this year wouldn't present him with many oppurtunities. Last year his BA was .249, and this year is .280. You don't mention his batting average, but are quick to bitch about his power. The Yankees got much more than they expected in Williams. Matsui is on his way back soon, and while you can argue he might face complications, he's expected to take batting practice in a week or so. Melky has shown he's capable of playing in the outfield, and now his playing time will soon be gone. Having Bobby Abreu is like buying a Ferrari- it's a luxury. They didn't need Abreu, although getting him means that other contenders (like Boston, Detroit, etc) cannot make a trade for him. As for Chacon and Ponson, their stats certainly arent appealing, but Chacon helped the Yankees tremendously down the stretch last season. With Lidle, the Yanks shouldn't need to rely on their pen as much, and it's possible that Ponson and/or Chacon could help out.

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

This is a typical Yankee trade, big contracts in exchange for young talent. Anyways, I really think that the Yankees could have done without Abreu. Bernie has been a pleasant suprise thus far, Melky has done well in clutch situations, and Damon hit two homers yesterday. The real gem of the trade was Corey Lidle, who really anchors the backend of the starting 5. With Ponson and Chacon in the pen, hopefully guys like Proctor, Villone, Farnsworth, and Rivera can get some rest. They are the team to beat. Obviously you are caught up in your world series run.... this year it dosent look so bright for ya.

Yankees pull off a "Bronx" Buster

Yeah, but if the season ended in two weeks, the White Sox would probably be the odd team out. Boston gets back David Wells from injury, and Coco Crisp is finally coming around. This move made by the Yankees is alright, but honestly, I would have rather seen them pick up a guy like Barry Zito or Dontrelle Willis. Adding Abreu wasn't a necessity, especially with Bernie doing well this year, Matsui on the mend, and Sheffield due back in September or sooner. Melky is also a decent outfielder, a rookie, and has a rocket for an arm. Lidle is a good fit for the Yankees, and will probably do well in the 4 spot in the starting 5. I think a potentially smart move would to go with a 6 man rotation, which would enable the starters (particulary Johnson) to pitch more innings, and hopefully give the Yankees entire stafff a rest. With Abreu, Lidle, and the returns of Matsui, Cano, Dotel, and possibly Sheffield- the Yankees should slide into the playoffs.

The name that im suprised nobody mentioned was Brian Grant- hes as big of a waste as Penny, or even Van Horn. Did anyone notice how many players on this list were from the Knicks? They had Van Horn, and Penny, Marbury, Francis, J Rose, and probably a few others. Plus, the Knicks are about to overpay again for another average talent in Jared Jefferies. It looks like Thomas is going to completely dismantle the team during his rein of terror, if he hasn't already.

Tiki Barber ready to exit for right opportunity

Many reporters and members of the media are counting the Giants out of the playoff hunt, largely due to the other teams in the NFC East. I personally believe that the Giants have a good chance of making a big run in the playoffs- as long as they stay healthy, and Eli improves. The G Men really don't have any glaring weaknesses, and adding Lavar in the offseason only stabilizes the front seven. As for Tiki, I am excited to see how well he can perform. Jacobs is a punishing back, who was used largely in short yardage situations last year. He's a beast, who should really lighten Tiki's workload. As for Ward, he's an ok back- with blazing speed. I really hope that Tiki will stay around for a few more years.

Ok, well at least now I don't look like a total ass.... but point is, I don't think that Frye will lead Cleveland to the playoffs, but Cleveland should be able to make the playoffs in a few years- one Frye emerges.

Browns lose C Bently for season

First of alll, according to nfl.com, Faine is a member of the Browns. Currently he is stated as the number one option. Secondly, Withrow is still a member of the Vikings, and is listed as their number one option. Thirdly, I never once said that Hallen was an upgrade over Bentley, I said that he could step in and do a servicable job. Lastly, the playoffs are almost out of the question with a rookie quarterback. Even Eli Manning struggled in his first year- and he was a number one pick. Maybe the websites information is wrong, and if it is, I should be more carefull of where I get my resources.

The Evolution of the Two-Tight End Set

I wouldn't be suprised to see the Giants use a two tight end formation with the newly aquired Boo Williams and or course, Jeremy Shockey. The 49ers could really benefit from this, especially with the speed of Davis. I personally think that the Falcons should try this, with Crumpler, and two solid backs. Vick isnt that accuratte of a passer, so this could benefit him in many aspects. Nice article yerfatma.

Brewers trade Lee to Rangers, get Cordero

This is a great example of how high priced pitching is. Personally, I think that the trade favors the Ranges, but who knows how many more deals will be made before the deadline. If the Brew Crew can trade some of their surplus of outfielders, they can really benefit from this trade. Plus, keeping Lee around could have gotten very expensive.

Browns lose C Bently for season

Yeah, but Minnesota struggled last year because of all the off the field problems. They finished 9-7, and could have done better if Dante had a good year. They had a useable backup in Withrow, who btw is starting this year. For someone to say that a center will make or break a teams season dosen't make much sense. He might effect the teams play slightly, but not as dramatically as you think. Hallen isnt a bad backup, he could probably lead the line better than Charles, who has less experience, and is new to the system. The offensive line really isnt the biggest issue- it their defense. The other starting members of the o-line are experienced, and proven. Plus they have another veteran in Jeff Faine, who can possible split playing time with Hallen. This injury obviously wont be beneficiary to the Browns, but they aren't a playoff team this year anyway.

I dont think that this will greatly effect the Browns, with or without Bentley, I dont see them making the playoffs. People have put way too much stock in their offseason aquisitions, and are really depending on Frye. In 3 or 4 years, I think this team will be a force to be reckoned with.
