Not to excuse Barry, Sammy or Big Mac, but were any of those things they took or supposedly took against MLB rules at the time? (yes they may have been against the law of the state they lived in, but if NBA tested for an illegal substance, say marijuana, the coaches would have to put on unis and pick four other guys from the stands to round out thestarting line ups. In my opinion, the NBA is the biggest crock of crap in pro sports) I do photography on the side, and I am willing to do anything legal to grow my business. For Bonds, Sammy and Big Mac, their business is contingent on their success in baseball Is it right? No. Do I see why they tried to take every little advantage they could? Yes. BTW Valium, Ty Cobb was not only a racist, but also probably a murderer. He pistol whipped a guy. The guy died from the injuries sustained. Chandler

Hey Cody, I do feel for you. I remember when the balloon went up in Somolia. When the UN was pulling out of Mogadishu my brother (who was a Lance Corporal Marine Infantryman) was put on a ship and sent to Somolia. He was on the ground for a short while at the Mogadishu Airport while the UN loaded up. His unit took and returned fire on a few occaisions. He got home fine. I was more than a little worried and I am torn when the US intervenes in other countries, but we (as the most powerful country in the world) are saddled with the responsibility of being the world's policeman. It isn't fun and sometimes I think it isn't right, but the world's business is our business and I knew all along that Eric joined voluntarily and did whet he felt was right. I wish peace and comfort on you and the family of your friend. Tell them I empathize with their sacrifice and I wish to thank them and him for his service. Chandler

(Not that I am famous, but trust me, I know) The guy can't leave his house without someone wanting to talk to him whether it be a reporter or a fan or some hustler. I really always wanted to be famous myself, until I met some folks who were. That maybe the last thing I would ever wish on someone. A$$ or not, I believe I would want people to leave me alone too (Sports reporters can be obnoxious and they do ask Stupid questions sometimes.)

Man I don't think I would invest a WHOLE lot in Sosa or Piazza. Frank can hit and does walk, but it isn't like he is a great basestealer, so all in all unless you get Piazza or Sosa for $500,000 or less, leave them at the house. Personally, I hate to see real catchers whose records were broken by Piazza. I guess he is a decent guy and all, but he was in reality an above average hitting first baseman who was playing below average catcher.

As for the NL, the Braves will win the NL East, again, just beacuse it's the Braves I don't agree. Leo Mazzone is gone to Baltimore. The crux of the Braves success has been pitching. Admittedly, he has had talent to work with, but what has put the Braves over the top every year is Mazzone pulling someone off the junk pile and making them a solid pitcher (i.e. Kyle Farnsworth last year). I am not saying the Braves will fall completely apart, but I believe we will see some serious decline in their pitching staff with Mazzone gone. Wrigs

Nice Work JJ. Mickey Mantle played drunk pretty regularly as did Whitey Ford, Billy Martin and numerous others. Drugs and alcohol ruined and eventually killed Ken Caminiti. Favre had the pain pills issues a few years ago. Jon Matuzak was reputed to live on "Bagels and Vodka" Take NFL players for example. My father in law worked with the brother of former All Pro Tackle Fulton Kuykendall. His brother stated "Fulton made himself a nice retirement, but he killed himself doing it". Do we honestly think that these guys deal with this type of pain/pressure without self medicating in some way? I am ok with drinking, I plan to do some tonight and, yes, I have come to work hungover, but not actively drunk. Do I excuse Bode Miller for skiing drunk? Sure. As far as I am concerned he could have a bottle of Tangueray in one hand a ski pole in the other. I would be more worried about JJ injuring someone by drinking and darting than Bode drinking and skiing

We don't ski much in Atlanta. I do get the same feeling though. I got drunk one time and fell off my neighbor's porch. That has got to be like skiing drunk.

1. Houston - Reggie Bush if he comes out, trade down if he doesn't 2. New Orleans - A new stadium if there is one available, Matt Leinart if not. 3. Tennessee - Trade Down or Jimmy Williams CB Va Tech 4. New York Jets - AJ Hawk LB Ohio State 5. Green Bay - D'Brickashaw Ferguson OT UVa Got to protect whomever the new QB is. 6/7. Oakland - Vince Young, QB Texas. I don't care what the question is, Kerry Collins isn't the answer. 6/7. SF - DeAngelo Williams, RB Memphis. It would go a long way toward keeping Alex Smith from getting KILLED. 8. Buffalo - Shoot the whole team and start over. Other than that, Best Available, who would be Mario Williams, DE NC State 9. Detroit - They need a QB, but alas...so how about Haloti Ngata, DT Oregon? 10. Arizona - They need a QB, but alas... so how about DeMeco Ryans, LB Bama?

So here is my thought...teams ought to be like families. If I punch someone on the street, yeah take me to jail, but if I punch my brother (and I have, even at church once) it ought to be family business. As long as it was teammate vs. teammate, they shouldn't get fined. I think a more appropriate action would have been to fine Miller his pay for the game/games he missed, IF you felt like you should fine someone.

Ok, so Jones was 1-5, he saved 40 games and 2.10 ERA. This is the Tiggs we are talking about. It does scare me that Jones is 37 and Kenny is 104. Maybe this is Detroit's year and we just don't know about it yet?

Which leads to the questions of RF and LF.

Jose Macias is a .250 guy. Matt Murton, Felix Pie and Dave Kelton or some combo of those guys?

According to an ESPN 1000 radio report, the Cubs have acquired center fielder Juan Pierre from the Marlins for pitchers Sergio Mitre, Ricky Nolasco and Renyel Pinto. Mitre was decent last year, but Nolasco and Pinto were off the hook in AA (for whatever that is worth.) Glad we got Pierre, afraid Pinto will be another Dontrelle Willis

That is a SERIOUSLY funny commercial. I have NEVER heard of the Manning mooning incident. I worked in a C&W bar for a few years and was the guy who escorted the acts to and from the bus, drove them to and from the hotel, drove them to meals etc. The VAST majority were great guys (Gary Allan and Tracy Lawrence stick out in my mind) but some were total JackAsses to me and other club employees (Sammy Kershaw and Rich from Big and Rich) BUT all of them were nice to the public. I really want Manning to be a great guy, but I have seen celebs who put on a show in public, but were asses when no one but "the hired help" was looking.

Nope. With a great back like Alexander and a very good OLine, they could have beaten them last year. BUT this year a solid+ defense will make it all but impossible for anyone to keep up with Manning and the offense. Too Many weapons. Harrison, Edgerrin, Dallas Clark and Reggie Wayne. You can only take away so many options and Manning will kill you with the ones you don't cover. If he wins a Super Bowl, he will be ranked with Elway and Young as the greatest QB of our Generation.
