Rants: Riley Cooper his remark using the N word shouls not come as a surprise, only goes to show that what lies deep in a person will eventually come out. He did apologize for his remark and was fined and was sent to sensitivity training but was it sincere or was it a matter of being caught? This can’t sit good with the Chip Kelly regime in Philly.
Rants:Alex Rodriquez and MLB for this dragged out drama over BioGenesis. If MLB has the goods on ARod then suspend him already and stop with the leaks to the press and the threats.ARod needs to fess up on his role in this mess and take the high road. His legacy is really at stake here. This is what he will be most remembered for.
Rants:New York Mets,no matter how good or how bad they are they can’t seem to beat the Miami Marlins on a consistent basis. It is the weirdest thing. I like their chances against almost every team in the National league except the Marlins. Don’t forget it was the Marlins that finished off the Mets in 2007, and 2008 back to back collapses and the Mets haven’t been able to beat them regualrly since. And for whatever reason the Marlins have Matt Harvey’s number too.
>Raves:Pittsburgh Pirates, could this finally be the year the Bucs finish above 500 and make the playoffs? It sure looks that way. The Pirates and the Cardinals are locked in a tight race with the Reds in the mix. Exciting times in Pittsburgh, good to see.
Raves:Detroit Pistons, on paper they upgraded their roster with the return of Chauncey Billups, the signing of Josh Smith and the trade of Brandon Jennings. Could this be the return to glory for the Pistons? Joe Dumars is hoping so. The Pistons maynot be one of the toip 5 teams inthe East but spots 6,7, and 8 could be interesting battles with the Pistons right in the mix.
Raves:Kansas City Royals. It’s been a long time sionce the Royals have been relevant even in Kansas City, but they are riding high on a 9 game win streak which has them 3 games over 500 and 6.5 games back on the AL central behind Detroit and Cleveland. Will this be the year they make the post season?
