Good loser,: bad loser. The Diamondbacks' Bob Brenly has praise and hope for the Cardinals who defeated him, while George Steinbrenner passes the buck and prognosticates poor ratings for a World Series that doesn't include the Yankees. Go Angels.
Keith Olbermann won't shut up.: First he insisted Reds manager Jim Bowden be fired for his Sept. 11 comments--and admittedly, they were far from appropriate. But now he's excoriating another Bowden--Bobby of FSU--for adopting "Let's Roll" as the slogan of his football team. I think this time Olbermann is out of line--or maybe he just has a thing against men named Bowden.
Bud Selig insists the Twins' 17-game AL Central lead is an "aberration": and suggests a new stadium to solve their financial woes--woes which Selig claimed would render the Twins unable to compete this season. Meanwhile, Major League Baseball plans to celebrate its most aberrant moments at this year's World Series.
Aren't they supposed to be greedy?: Three teams have voted against authorizing a strike date, according to "sources close to the Players Association." I don't subscribe to the "imminent death of baseball" rhetoric, but it's definitely reassuring to see something other than the towing of the party line.
