Time for a Realignment

Written by , Posted in General

I was talking to Chris Yarbrough yesterday before the game and he mentioned that he felt the Cubs had a 1% chance of winning the game against J. Santana.

While many of us respect the job that Guillen has done bringing the Sox to baseball excellence, we must also recognize the fact that Ozzie is rapidly becoming an embarrassment to the city of Chicago as well as the White Sox. I remember watching as a young man when Ted Koppel […]

A wasted career for Kid K. In other news, I am looking for someone to take over a team in a 14 team fantasy football keeper league in year 2. It’s not a good team, but since it’s keeper, it would be temporary. If you’re interested, the league is on Yahoo. Please contact me for details.
