I"m going to take in a few innings of this year's World Series. I want to see Colorado do well, and either win or push the series to 7 games.
If the Rockies don't do well in the Series, you'll hear cries of foul about the long layoff from the LCS to the WS.
I'd like to see the regular season a few games shorter, and the Divisional Series set to a 7-gamer.
So the Yanks are reported to offer Posada a 3 year $40mm deal. I think that's a little steep for a defensive liability that more than any other player cost the team the ALDS. If that's the check they're willing to write for Jorge, I am more than curious to see what Mo is to be offered (2 years, with a 1 year option at $30mm is my guess). . . . . I think it'd be funny if Jorge turned it down because he thought the terms of the deal were insulting!
ON an unrelated but disappointing note . . . NBC, MSNBC, CNN, the Democratic Presidential Candidates and most of the print media have long justified their anti-American positions and reporting by saying more or less, that they support the troops, but hate Bush. So whatever they say or do is OK then . . . maybe some believed that crap, maybe some didn't I don't know. . . . This week though an opportunity presented itself for those in question to show their support as a soldier from Long Island (Lt. Michael Murphy) was awarded the Medal of Honor - he is the only MOH awarded for action in Afghanistan. So what happened? The Times buried it in a back section, and was not covered or mentioned at all by the aforementioned parties above - Why is that if they really do support the troops?? They seem more than willing to make a top story about the alleged wrongs of a soldier, but when a story of honor presents itself (and this is a story of honor) - nothing. . .The next time you hear a loon pontificating on the usual anti and evil America memo, and follow their comments with a "but I support the troops" pledge, call them on their Bull Shit.
