It's time to pitch the DH.

I do not like the DH as it takes a lot of strategy from the game. When to use a pitch hitter for the pitcher. My question would be? Why did any team not pick up Barry Bonds. Especially the Yankees or Red Sox. They seem to stop at nothing in order to win and money does not seem to matter. Barry no doubt had a few dingers left in his bat.

This shows you the morals that most lawyers have, none.

Does speed kill?

Nolan was at his best and un-hittable when he had the curve going. That is why he has 7 no-hitters. The seven no-hitters and his career strikeout record are two that will last a long time.

"The chief executive officer of Tribune Company says he won't hesitate to sell the naming rights to Wrigley Field

$$$$$$ rule. That is why I am turned off on pro sports. College is somewhat better. The Horseshoe, The Big House, Tiger Stadium, good college names that have withstood the $$$$ push.

Belichick and Pioli speak out.

If he was not clear on the rule, he should have asked the league for clarity. He knew what he was doing. It is hard to plead ignorance on this one. But this is the direction our nation is headed. What has happened to a man's word?

Jim Brown calls out Tiger Woods

As long as statments about race stir the feelings as these postings reflect, then society as a whole has a long way to go. These feelings will probably never go away. Look at history. Always some poor SOB to make fun of and ridicule. It is a sad sad world.

USC's Carroll intersted in Falcons opening

How about loads of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$? That usually changes most minds. Five to seven million a year, coach a few years, win or lose, retire before 60 years old, not to shabby.

Home sweet home: LSU tops OSU in BCS Championship

I agree with cjets that a one plus one BCS game would be a bad move. They keep fixing the BCS with tweak after tweak and it never gets any better. The other football divisions have a 16 team playoff system and they get a winner every time. The old excuse was that the players were student-athletics and a playoff system would take them out of the classroom. This was being said when the teams had a 10 game regular season. Years later, a 12 game regular season, a conference championship for some and a bowl game. LSU played 14 games as did Florida, Vir Tech, Boston College, Oklahoma, Missouri, Conference USA teams. Reduce the regular season and have the bowl sites host the playoff games. Win-Win for all. If the PAC 10 and Big 10 do not agree, let them play with themselves. The rest of the world gets playoff games and a true national champ and as a couple of posts stated, Maybe nomore "JUMPER" ads.
