A-Rod calls for the pop-up... as he's running to third.

As a dyed-in-the-wool Met fan, any negative publicity the Yankees receive is welcome news. That being said, I agree with the Sousepaw. Anyone who has played even Little League knows that the shortstop should've taken control of the pop-up, either calling off the third baseman immediately, or at the very least, going over and covering 3B. Hey, these guys are the elite of the elite and earning money I can only dream about. Just because someone yells out "your mother wears army boots", doesn't make him the antichrist. Barreling into a catcher on a play at the plate is no more sportman-like, yet you don't hear anyone complaining about that.

"The Snake" sheds his career.

Why would you stay in the league and risk being crippled on some play? "Plummer has three years left on his contract and was due $5.3 million in 2007. " I would have to say $5.3 Million is reason enough to play quarterback in South Florida. If the risk of being crippled on some play had anything to do with it, then he should have never started playing football. Maybe he could've been an underachieving handball player his entire career.

Knight gets win No. 880, passing Smith

If you want to judge a coach by what he gets out of his players, there is no better coach in any sport than Bobby Knight. Dean Smith's teams were consistently underachievers.
