If Pac-Man Jones receives a full-season suspension (as he should) without a formal arrest, then why does Tank Johnson, who has been arrested, only receive an eight-game suspension?
Why are people complaining about Lou Piniella being fiery? Isn’t that what is expected?
Why do people want Joe Torre to suddenly abandon his laidback managing style that has won four World Series titles?
Should the University of Florida take Billy Donovan back? For this answer consider Woody Harrelson’s situation in the movie, Indecent Proposal: young guy, starting out on a career, attractive wife, boatload of cash offered by Robert Redford (at the risk of being accused of a man crush I will use the words of my late Aunt Judy: “Any movie with Robert Redford is the worth the price of admission.”) for ‘one night’ – a guy’s worst nightmare, and the inevitable truth that the offer lasted more than one night. To the athletics department at the University of Florida: consider yourselves lucky that you won’t find yourself like Woody Harrelson sitting at the end of a pier, staring at the water, wondering what could have been, and wishing you could be suffering from a ‘fatigued groin’. No UF you are not young, nor are you just starting out. But Billy Donovan will recruit, and he will win. Like Woody took Demi back with open arms you should roll out the red carpet and welcome him back with open arms.
Speaking of ‘fatigued groin’, does Brian Cashman have any friends left? If so, are they caught standing near him? One has to wonder how many more times lightning will strike. Cashman signs Mussina to an extension. The ‘Moose’ currently has two wins and three losses with a 6.25 era. Cashman paid $26 mill to talk to a player currently workin’ out the bugs in Scranton. Now ‘The Rocket’ is putting off his 2007 Major League debut. What does a guy need to do to catch a break? I almost feel sorry for Cashman…not really.
