Joe Torre's final days with the Yankees

I brought the cubs up as a case in point . They also have a hefty payroll, and had either the best or second best record in MLB. Also got SMOKED in the first round of the playoffs. My point being you can buy they best pony on the track doesn't mean he can run. But it's always the coaches fault, right? is it wrong to ask the players to perfom comesurate with their salaries? Joe Torre moved on an took a mediocre team with half the money invested as the Yanks, and almost made the playoffs. So is it really the coach?

It's OK for the NFL to get you drunk, but not Charles Woodson

Anybody remember the game in Cleveland, where the players on both teams were pelted with miller lite bottles? Hipocrisy at it's best.

Fukudome doesn't find racist T-shirts in Wrigleyville funny

This Is excactly what's wrong with our country. No matter how offensive the shirt is, he has the right given by our way of life to sell it. And buy the way it, seems to be making him alot of money. If he wasn't selling alot of the shirts he would'nt have them. So the talkm of shut this guy down is worthless. What about the larger issue of people who are buying the shirts? Now they don't have the right to wear a t-shirt. Since when did we adopt a dress code in the USA?Or acorrding to shotput everyone needs to take a baseball test to go buy a ticket. Since when does one grouyp get to decide how and when someone else sees a baseball game? People go to baseball games to party and have a good time , NOT ALLOWED! STAY OUT! Only people who really understand the game are allowed in. And keep your Damn kids quiet, I am trying to watch a ballgame! Where does this end ? There is always someone who is going to disagree with something. That is part of our fundamental freedoms as Americans. When we start locking up people because of what they say or beleive, we as Americans lose the most precious of rights, our freedom.
