The Day After...


Has Big Bill dropped the ball? Rock me...

When he faced the press Monday, the Giant Enormous Tuna still had no answers as to why his team imploded against the Redskins. For that matter, do we really ever get any real information out of him? Most of the time the assembled media at Bill's press conferences are too scared or too worried about being his buddy to ask him anything that might get something of substance. (See Jean Jacques Taylor, Clarence Hill, Jennifer Engel or any of the other butt-kissers roaming around Valley Ranch.) I know Bill's normally gonna blow the tough questions off, but don't you have to at least ask them occasionally?

Voting for the Pro Bowl is done. Two Cowboys among the top vote getters in the NFC. Now Roy Williams I understand, but Larry Allen??? I guess he's been okay this season, but I'm not sure about another trip to Hawaii. Also, rookie DE Demarcus Ware among the top vote-getters for first year players. The full NFC/AFC rosters will be announced Wednesday.

----------------------------------------------------------

Good news and bad news for the Stars Tuesday:

The good news: Modano and Guerin will be on Team USA in Italy in February...



Now the bad news: Dallas lets Minnesota steal one from them, 2-1...

---------------------------------------------------------


Well...

Should I really get excited to hear that free agent pitcher Kevin Millwood says he will meet with the Rangers? What I'll be more interested to see is how Jon Daniels spins it when Millwood goes to another team.

---------------------------------------------------



(Cue sad piano music) In what could be his final appearance on Monday Night Football, Brett Favre and the Pack get 48 points hung on them by the Baltimore Ravens (the team that had the lowest scoring avg -13.2 a game- coming into the contest.) Sorry Bob...

More painful for Bob: getting the tat or watching the Pack Monday Night?

"I appreciate ya, Jermaine...I really do."

Seems Ron Artest has apparently had a change of heart and wants to stay in Indiana with the Pacers. Please, please, please whoever is running the show up there do NOT let him back. This, combined with the Terrell Owens ruling, would be just another great way to remind athletes that there are consequences for their actions and the statements they make to the media.

Did Bob give you permission to hock your stuff on his blog?

If so, he's an idiot. If not, you are a pure capitalist genius!!!!!

Thanks for filling in.

Rumor has it that Millwood is only hear b/c he has family in the area and is using the trip as an excuse. Can anyone confirm that?

I guess it doesn't matter, if he signs with the Rangers, the Good Lord is returning in all his glory to smite the wicked shortly thereafter anyways.

JeradB..

Don't you have some TPS reports to do...

Mind your business dude!!!

Just comment on what you see.. No one cares about your opinion on how the blog should be...

Don't be a tool.

JeradB said...

Damn.. backlash.... I'm wounded.


Back to my TPS reports.

Fake Sturm said...

Adam Eaton and Otsuka(?) for Chris Young, Gonzalez, and Sledge???

Otsuka is supposed to be a pretty good setup dude. Eaton was good last year but got hurt and missed quite a few starts.

Ty, love your stuff. Keep posting pictures, as I hear they speak a thousand words.

BTW - love your comments on the Pear-Shaped "Football Genius" and his circle-jerk press conferences. No one has asked a tough question in there in years.

Explain to me..

We trade a pitcher who is 12-7, ERA 4.26, 1.26 WHIP for a pitcher who is two years older, 11-5, ERA 4.27 with a 1.44 WHIP - and who missed games due to injury? Not to mention whose salary this last year was nearly $3.4m? This, of course, doesn't even begin to describe the pitcher-friendly National League, or Petco Park that he played in ...

How does this make the Rangers better?

Yeah, Chris Young had arm fatigue last year, but you can strengthen that in an offseason with a throwing program.. at least, assuming the Rangers have ANY sort of competent pitching staff..

Please, Bob, or whomever else - Don't bother paying a bit of attention to the Rangers ever again. Never again - until they get their acts together.

Yeah, all those butt-kissers.

Thankfully we have Spagnola to ask the tough questions and be objective about things.
