  1. Maybe GR could support AAA, but attendance has been declining the last few years for the Whitecaps.
  2. I would put Mario in that category as well.
  3. I don't think that McCullough will shut down Shaq either, but when Vlade wasn't in there, because of foul trouble, Shaq went nuts. You need a big body in there banging with Shaq or else he WILL dunk on you every time.
  4. The Red Sox are doing all this without Manny. I can't wait until he gets back. Then the Yankees will be 10 games out by mid-August.
  5. Juan E. appears to be the odd man out because he is eligible for arbitration after the season.
  6. Must be an unusual feeling for Yanks fans in that it's June and they haven't clinched a playoff berth yet.
  7. That's my prediciton. I happen to think that intellect-wise, New Jersey is actually better than Sacramento. I also think McCullough isn't as dumb as Vlade as far as making the most ludicrous fouls ever seen. He might get in foul trouble, but I think he'll stay on the floor. I think Sacramento should have beaten LA, but they play so stupidly and tentatively at times that they gave away the series. The Nets don't have those type of players. I don't see Kittles, Kidd, and Van Horn losing themselves in the moment very often, and look for Kenyon Martin to guard Kobe for stretches of time. I really think this Nets team is for real, and I think the Lakers are VERY good, but they can be beaten, and will be.
  8. I didn't see the game because I was exhausted and went straight to bed at 9:30 last night. I did happen to see Rick Adelman's press conference statements on ESPNEWS, and he was bemoaning the calls as well. You know what I just don't get? People always say David Stern and the NBA want this team in the finals or they don't want this team (like Milwaukee last year, Sacramento this year). If they don't want them there, WHY BOTHER PLAYING? Why tell the teams that each of them has a chance for the Finals, but all along as commish you're rooting for them NOT to get there? That is so bogus, and I have no doubt the credibility of some of the way these games are called comes into question.
  9. Please, PLEASE, no more Mario. I can barely stand him on the FoxSports, I don't need to hear him on the radio. Sorry, but that guy is about as cookie-cutter as they come.
  10. For the first four months or so of the year, Jim Price sounded like a phony whenever he was broadcasting with Ernie. He sounded like a real broadcaster when he was with Dickerson, but when doing the call with Ernie he did it in a gosh-golly-gee kind of a way that sounded VERY phony. I made a point on the board last year that I had noticed during the last two months of the season he cut it out, and that I seriously thought that somebody approached him about it. I could even tell back then that Ernie was uncomfortable being treated like a shriveled-up old man, but Price doesn't do that anymore. He still does the nice area thing, but that's part of his gig. As far as doing it nine innings, I'm sure Dickerson can do it, but does he want to. I kind of like the change of pace in the middle innings myself, no matter what team's broadcaster is doing the game.
  11. I don't know if anybody else has noticed, but Ernie sounds as good as he always has in my opinion. I remember last year I became concerned because it seemed like he was missing calls, but that's just proved how dumb I was. I wonder though if his decision to go has given him peace of mind, because his broadcasts these days are top-notch, even at his age. I love the way he rips on Jim Price (in fun of course). They have a very good relationship now. Whereas before Jim used to change Ernie's Depends every half-inning, now Jim actually treats him like a man, and I think it has made for great radio. Price has really won me over. So, is it automatically assumed that Dickerson takes over next year? If so, who's doing innings 4, 5, and 6? If not Dickerson, what names have come up?
  12. Dude, I just wanted an excuse to rip the state of Indiana. No in all seriousness, my brother hates it down there. He lives in Indianapolis, and himself is a mexican. I've heard from more than one source that Indianapolis is about as racist as it gets. I've heard NBA players call Conseco Fieldhouse the most racist arena in the league. That's just what I've heard, and the fact that most people would rather worship Bobby Knight's poop than get on board with Davis is ridiculous. On IU's campus, they sell more Texas Tech gear than they do IU gear. That's not a rumor, that is a fact. That's sick.
  13. I agree Jake. I was dissapointed with the selection of Harrington because I think McMahon has the chance to be something special. I'm sorry, but I don't think Harrington is all he's cracked up to be. Like I've said before, he reminds me so much of Rob Johnson.
