My RanDUMB Sports Thoughts
Here are my ran-DUMB sports thoughts…
The Dodgers are the CLEAR winner (on paper) when it came to the “deadline deal”. By adding Jim Thome and Jon Garland they plugged up two huge holes, a power bat off the bench and a 5th starter. This is a testament to Joe Torre’s influence with the McCourt’s. Torre makes Ned Colletti’s job easier because the McCourt’s value Torre’s input.
Matt Kemp is the best YOUNG outfielder in MLB. He is a true 5 tool player that is getting better every year, check that, every game. He is the Dodgers MVP this year and should win a league MVP in the future.
The Yankees are ready for post season, but please stop the “Joba Rules”. Let the guy go out every 5th day and do what he does best. A-Rod is starting to get locked in as well and THAT is trouble for the rest of the AL.
The Packers first teams have looked the best in the pre season thus far. No team has impressed me as much as the Packers. The biggest off season signing was Dom Capers as the Packers new DC.
Aaron Rodgers looks like he is ready to become a super star. He is everything you would want in a QB, smart, accurate, strong armed, a leader on and off the field and handles situations with respect and grace.
Why is there such a fuss over the “jumbo-tron” at the new Cowboys Stadium? If Jerry Jones wants to have his billion dollar baby get overshadowed everytime a punter hits the gigantic T.V. that’s his bad. But I can say this, the NFL will make SURE that thing gets raised up!
The Steelers are thinking of cutting Casey Hampton. WOW, how many 3-4 teams would LOVE to get their hands on him? I know 1 in the NFC North would, as would Dallas, Arizona and even the Patriots.
Brandon Marshall is a baby. Coming out of Central Florida they called him “Baby T.O.” and they were right. He has NO RIGHT to demand a trade. The Bronco organization stood by him with all his legal issues and now he wants out? GOOD LUCK with his attitude, new contract and with the distraction that comes with him to who ever trades for him (the Jets are reportedly interested).
I made it short today, I am feeling sick and need to rest, but will be back w/ a bigger piece in the VERY near future.
Oh, on a side note I won a “Child Please” T-shirt on twitter thanks to Reebok! I answered their trivia question right first, and they are hooking me up! Thanks Reebok!!
Have a blessed day and remember, what happens in the locker room, stays in the locker room!
