Manny Ramirez wants to be traded: according to Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated. Citing a lack of privacy off the field, this is Manny's third trade request in four years. However, Manny is still one of the Major's best hitters and in in the end, probably won't be dealt.

The Designated Hitter harming MLB: "...whether Selig realizes it or not, the dearth of pitching in baseball, especially in the AL, is threatening to make a travesty of his game." Look at these numbers, 38% of qualifying pitchers (this season) in the AL have an ERA below 4.00, while 62% of NL pitchers are below the mark. With every passing season, it's becoming more clear how much of a joke pitching in the AL has become and with the exception of a select few, teams will continue to struggle. Hopefully, sooner than later the DH will become a thing of the past in the AL.

SI Picks Breakout Stars for Each Team

I'd gladly change the link, directly to the SI Previews but there is no option for me to do so. I'm sorry I violated the rules. I haven't visited in quite some time but after looking over the guidelines, realize my mistake. Sorry, again, please change the link in my original post to... http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/preview/2006/scout.report/index.html

Meet Ryan Howard

As a Mets fan, he's probably the guy who will take the NL MVP Award (as long as the Phil's make the post-season). There's no way to argue against the voters in that case either.

Barry Bonds an Angel?

No way in hell the Giants let Bonds go. He sells TIX....period. Without him, they would hardly turn a profit (if at all).

Draft Lottery is none of your business

It's policies like this one that gives trouble to the NHL when it tries to reach out to fans. I'm praying that Crosby will be a Ranger but who the hell knows. The Rangers have sucked for way too long...it's about time it's paid off in some way.

Man impersonated Roethlisberger, St. Pierre to get dates

Are people that stupid? When a guys pickup line begins with "Hey, I'm the QB of the Pittsburgh Steelers", you'd think the girl would get a bit suspicious.

Back to NY

Leiter has been done for a year now. He'll get his 100+ pitches through 3 innings and then the bullpen will mop it up. Yanks are in desperation at the moment.

Statistics Don't Win Ballgames

Health is really their only obsticle. Hopefully, Casey Kotchman is moved to the east.
