    Kershaw with the Martinellis? We get it now. #Soft
    Frontrunners to win the World Series: Blue Jays 4-1; Royals 9-2; Mets 11-2 (careful Dodgers’ fans); and the Dodgers and Cards at 6-1. The Angels are 30-1. Good luck with that.
    This could change real quick, no?

Cash Money Homie

    Floyd Mayweather Jr. tops Sports Illustrated’s list of the athletes who have bagged the most coin over the past year. And Mayweather has earned his estimated $90 million without a single commercial endorsement.

Roc On

    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.

Angel Dust

    Like the Spurs, we believe the Angels might be good to go this season. At least we hope so as far as our boys Mahi and Bob Young are concerned.
    Early favorites to win the World Series: Angels and Dodgers (6-1); Nationals and Tigers (7-1); Giants and Blue Jays (9-1); Reds, Yankees and Braves (12-1); Phillies (16-1); Cardinals (18-1); A’s and Rays (20-1); Red Sox (30-1); and just for the record, the punk-ass Cubs (70-1).

    The Phillies (7-2) are the favorite to capture the World Series, according to the odds at Santa Fe Station in Las Vegas. The Cardinals, who shocked the world and the Phillies in last season’s playoffs, are 16-1, down from 18-1. Among the others: Yankees (9-2); Red Sox (7-1); Angels (5-1); Dodgers (28-1); Rangers (4-1); Tigers (5-1); Giants (12-1); Braves (16-1); punk-ass Cubs (35-1); White Sox (50-1); Padres (155-1); and A’s (100-1).

2011: Calling Cards

    There also is a tale about Super Bowl Sunday in Dallas last February, but that’s a story best told on a rainy day.
    Nothing could have been sweeter for the Dallas Mavericks than capturing their 1st NBA title, particularly by beating the Miami Heat, but a close second was Dirk and his mates wiping out the Lakers in a sweep that still resonates in L.A.
    For me though, nothing in 2011 compares to Game 6 of the World Series in St. Louis, where the Rangers were a strike away from claiming their 1st championship before David Freese drilled a fastball to right over the head of Nelson Cruz and the Cardinals, who were on life support just to make the playoffs a month before (not everyone thought such though), began a seemingly impossible rally in extra innings that resulted in the club winning its 11th banner.
    Hours before Game 7, which was practically an afterthought as far as Cards fans were concerned, I strolled up to a betting window in 1 of my favorite sportsbooks (Santa Fe Station in Vegas) like the cocky young fella I used to be, decked out in a classic power blue Cards’ jersey (think the ’80s and the “White Rat”) with the Wizard’s name and number in red letters on the back and flashing the biggest and shittiest grin 1 could imagine. Even the betting clerk couldn’t resist smirking.
    “You know why I’m here,” I said sarcastically, confident as I’ve ever been before wagering a bet.
    “Good luck,” he said.
    I didn’t need it. I knew my money was as good as gold.

Best Team In Baseball

    Phillies 5, Dodgers 3.
    Don’t be fooled. The Phillies celebrated as they flew from San Francisco to L.A. yesterday evening after taking 3 of 4 from the Giants in a heated series. That probably led to some players up in the club, particularly some of those relievers. Hey, Roy Halladay sometimes is off his game.
    Still, they had enough in the tank to take care of the woeful Dodgers.

Tony, Tony, Tony

    Speaking of aliens…
    Tony Bruno showed his true colors by calling Giants reliever Ramon Ramirez an “illegal alien” on Twitter in the aftermath of Friday’s brawl between the Giants and Phillies. Bruno, a nationally-syndicated radio host, is a Phillies fan. Still, like many other radio talk-show hosts, he showed his ignorance and, according to Bruce Bochy, showed his “racist” side.
