With Waylon and Willie and the boys…
Josh Hamilton returns to the scene of the crime today, when the Angels visit the Rangers in a 3-game series in Ft. Worth. To quote Jim Harrick, it should be a ball burner.

African Americans agents have had a rough time in the lily-white business of sports representation far too long. Black athletes can share in some of that shame. Much of it can be attributed to ignorance. And brainwashing.
But Jay-Z entering the game significantly changes the landscape. And when he stole Yankees star Robinson Cano from the notorious Scott Boras this week, it raised more than an eyebrow or 2 in this cesspool swimming with scumbags.

With Opening Day less than a week away, several baseball experts have been touting the Padres as one of the clubs that could surprise. San Diego had one of the best records in the 2nd half of the season last year, but had nothing to show for it.
This season, the Pads would need to prevail for a postseason berth (a wild card seems to be the most popular prediction) in a division that includes the world champion Giants and a Dodgers club that includes a convoy of Brinks’ trucks. Further, according to VegasInsider, the Dodgers are 10-1 (Angels, Nats and Tigers are also 10-1) to win the World Series, while the Giants are a 12-1 pick.
Injuries have also hurt the Padres in spring training. Third baseman Chase Headley could miss the 1st month with a broken thumb. And slugger Carlos Quentin, who has played the past couple of day in spring training, played in only 86 games last season and has been hobbling around in Arizona.
But hope spring eternal. It always does this time of year.

This Caddy was spotted at JetBlue Park at Fenway South in Florida, the spring training base for the Red Sox. Yankee fans will probably get a kick out of the front plate.

Where’s Arte Moreno? Magic Johnson?
The usual suspects such as Roger Goodell, David Stern and Bud Selig are among a list of the 50 most powerful people (only 3 women) in sports. But Ed O’Bannon? That’s right. The former UCLA star could change the landscape of college sports with his suit against the NCAA.
