Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Everybody’s yakking about Manny Ramirez making the All Star team. Everybody’s quacking about Manny making the All Star team. Everybody’s talking smacking about Manny making the All Star team. Bud Selig is weighing his options: “I’m going to think about that. It bothers me that someone would cheat.” It didn’t seem to bother him when folks were hitting the ball a country mile while Major League Baseball was hitting the jackpot. Joe Torre disagrees with Wilfred Brimley. Joe Torre does not think it’s the right thing to do and the right way to do it: “He didn’t earn, other than from his reputation, to be, this year, in the All-Star game.” Funny, I remember back in 2001 Torre picking seven Yankees to the All Star team. Seven! Picking them for their reputation. Mike Stanton? Honestly. Bernie Williams: “‘You take care of him and do everything in your power to make him look good, and he’s going to do everything in his power to make you look good.” I guess Manny carrying the Dodgers on his back into the playoffs didn’t make Joe look good enough. So Binky, you’re all fed up with state of baseball? You’ve had enough of the hypocrisy? You wanna make a difference? You wanna make a stand? Huh? Do ya? Good. Vote Manny!

(ESPN 9PM ET) NBA Playoff Baskettball. The Thrills. The spills. Oh, the humanity! If the Lakers do what the Lakers the did in Game Five, the Nuggets do not have a chance. If the Lakers once again play team basketball, the Nuggets do not have a chance. Five players on the floor functioning as one single unit. Team, team, team! No one more important than the other. Instead of relying on Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant to shoulder the bulk of the scoring load, the Lakers received contributions from everybody. Team, team, team! Get your popcorn ready!

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Earlier this season, Khalil Greene had been predicted to be this season’s Comeback Player of the Year. He had a superb spring training. Tony LaRussa told everyone he planned to use Greene as the team’s cleanup hitter. A change of scenery was supposed to do him some good. No longer toiling in the unfriendly confines of PETCO Park, Khalil was supposed to return to the power hitting shortstop we once thought he could be. Now, not so much. Now, the St. Louis Cardinals are in what one club official called a “fact-gathering” mode. Now, Greene is struggling with an anxiety-related condition. Now, the club’s most significant off-season acquisition is being kept out of the lineup.

I’m takin’ y’all on a trip straight through memory lane. It’s like that y’all…it’s like that y’all…it’s like that y’all. -Nas
Public Service Announcement: OK, here we go! Yup, time to go old school. The Cleveland Cavaliers are not generally mentioned in the pantheon of great NBA franchises. Not a team we generally sensationalizes. Not a team we generally order with our burger and frieses. Cleveland is well, you know, Cleveland. Not for nothing, I do love Cleveland from the Family Guy: “Public urination is just wrong. Except during the Million Man March when protestors burned down our porta-potties and I used my stream of justice to put out the hate.” But still this team does have a history. Not a Celtics history. Not a Lakers history. Heck, not even a Seattle Supersonics history. But a history nonetheless. So without further ado, the All-Cavs Team: (LeBron Not Included) Read More »

Hey young world… the world is yours. Hey young world… the world is yours. Young world young world… the world is yours. -Slick Rick
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Like Whitney Houston always says when she’s not hepped up on that crack, “I believe the children are our are future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.” The Baltimore Orioles’ children are the future. The Baltimore Orioles’ children are leading the way. The Orioles are in the midst of a youth movement. Gorillas in the mist. Fresh off their fourth straight win, these upstart Orioles are winning the old fashioned way. They’re winning from the ground up. They’re winning with youth. Read More »

Cavaliers 112 Magic 102: I knew LeBron wouldn’t go out like that. I knew LeBron would have a big game. I knew facing elimination he would stand up and be recognized. Last night, LeBron stood up like only four other players in NBA history have stood up before him. Last night, LeBron James had thirty-seven big points. Last night, LeBron James had fourteen big rebounds. Last night, LeBron James had twelve big assists. Only Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird, James Worthy and Gary Payton had a 30/10/10 game for the winning side when their team could be eliminated from the postseason. The question is, can he do it again? And again? I say yes. Read More »

I ain’t missing you at all since you’ve been gone away. I ain’t missing you, no matter what my friends say. -John Waite
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! True blue Dodgers fans may be pissed at Manny Ramirez. Joe Torre may call it a disappointment. But I’ll show you one cat who ain’t upset. I’ll show you one cat who’s flying high as a jet. One cat whose life is now as sweet as a crepe Suzette. That one cat is Juan Pierre. Last night, Juan Pierre had three hits in the Dodgers’ win over the Rockies. Pierre is hitting .422 since Manny‘s suspension began on May 7. Only two National League players have a higher batting average than Pierre over that span. Only Miguel Tejada and Casey Blake. Maybe Manny should give up his All Star spot to Juan Pierre. Just saying.

(TNT 8:30 PM ET) I’ve called LeBron James the best basketball player on the planet. I’ve called LeBron James the best athlete in the world. I refuse to believe he’s going to go out like this. It’s a sin to kill a man but I’ll be damned if I don’t take a stand. We ain’t goin’ out like that. We ain’t goin’ out like that. Neither is LeBron. He will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy his brothers. And you will know his name is the Lord when he lays his vengeance upon thee. Get your popcorn ready!
