Die hard Red Sox fan. Been one since before I was born. They make me cry sometimes but are always entertaining.

Arizona Gives Fans the Bird

...the cards on the other hand suck and there not doing anything about it. Sure they are. They very slightly changed their logo. Now it has attitude.That should be good for at least 1 preseason win next year.

"How did Jacksonville get the Super Bowl?"

I think the media critics are just getting warmed up to blast Detriot That's a fact. At least in Jacksonville you can go to the beach to nurse your hangover.

Aussie Open women's final over,

I've never seen a tank in a final of a major before. Lindsay just collapsed. I didn't think a number one in any sport could be on such a fine line. Guess we're all human after all...

Clemens is the highest paid pitcher in baseball history

starry, I (we) think you are missing the point. I think what we are trying to say is: One person is not bigger than the game. And when demands escalate, owners are forced to pay something close - in comparison with what other owners are paying for an equivalent player - or another owner will pay the demand, so the current owner risks losing the player. That being said, when the numbers get so high they outweigh smart business, you run the very realistic possibility of owners not being happy with the MLBPA. When this happens, they try to change the next CBA, and we end up with a lockout or a strike. It sucks, and it is killing all sports, and the players can contol this, but Roger is proof that they (and their blood-sucking agents) won't. My two cents.

Let's be generous and say he wins 18 games. And in those wins he's good for 100 pitches. That's $10,000 a pitch. Joey's right. Fuck Clemens.

I predict 8-11 with a 5.61 era... worth every million.

Lift-off is expected to be an expensive undertaking

Clemens left the Red Sox when the team didn't value his contribution as highly as other teams did Actually, if memory serves, he demanded a multi-year contract that would have made him the highest paid pitcher in baseball. This coming from a guy that had a 4 year record barely above .500 Clemens gave an emotional interview in which he claimed to long for status as a Red Sox all-time great, finishing his career with the team and joining Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski as iconic figures in Boston baseball history. Later the Rocket announced that if he couldn't get what he deserved from the Red Sox, then he would only sign with one of the two teams close to his home and family in Texas. "My family comes first," Roger said. Clemens then signed a multi-year contact with that well known Texas municipality, Toronto, Canada.

But the guy was practically unhittable last season. I agree. Who retires after winning the Cy? I'd wait till I sucked and my agent kicked me to the curb, and my wife divorced me and took half of that crazy money, but that's just me.

Is anyone else sick of Curt Schilling?

I'd rather Jack Morris or John Smoltz in their primes Or Randy Johnson today.
