From Fantasy Baseball Scout:
“What I read about the Cubbies’ being contenders for the World Series seems incredible to me. Their pitchers will get sore arms. Chicago’s outfield is so poor defensively that the hurlers also will get sore feet from running to back up bases, and sore arms from watching that outfield allow outs to roll into the ivy for extra-base hits.”
Tyson Chandler on his solid play:
“It makes me feel good. I’m just so happy, but I know in the back of my head I’m not even a quarter of the way to where I feel I can get. I’m still rough around the edges and need a lot of polishing.”
Polishing? Chandler is in his 6th NBA season.
Pacman Jones has had more brushes with the law than interceptions and news came out this week that he has been charged with a felony. So naturally…
Atlanta attorney Manny Arora said Jones has done nothing wrong: “He’s just made some poor decisions with the people he’s associated with, and they’re trying to drag him down.”
Of course…no one thought otherwise. Some cool linkage:
