Tigers in six, tops.
I'm sticking to it.
Pudge Rodriguez might want to mix in a hit or two, just for grins.
This explains why the Orioles preferred Javy Lopez. They knew Rodriguez would slump in the playoffs and they wanted no part of it.
The next time Tigers reliever Joel Zumaya fields a ball with runners on first and second and none out, he might try tossing it to the bat boy. That would make almost as much sense as his decision to throw to third base last night.
Albert Belle has been released from prison. And just in time for Halloween.
Trick or trauma!
Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado won the Roberto Clemente Award, given to the man who combines outstanding play on the field with devoted work in the community. He was chosen over, among others, the Orioles' Brian Roberts.
The Tony Romo era has begun in Dallas. Feel the excitement.
Pretty bold move by coach Bill Parcells, benching Drew Bledsoe with his team 3-3 and one game out of first place. This could be Parcells' last season in Dallas, so why not put your trust in an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Illinois?
Actually, Tony Romo looked pretty good in the preseason. And at least he can move.
The Cowboys wanted to display a statue of Bledsoe outside their stadium after the quarterback retires, but he volunteered to stand in that spot.
This reminds me of my early lock of the week: Carolina -5 1/2 vs. Dallas.
By the way, tickets are going fast for the Texans-Titans game on Sunday. Don't be left out in the cold.
The Raiders win their first game last weekend, Ben Roethlisberger is out with a concussion, and the Steelers still are a 9 1/2-point favorite. Where's the respect?
Just wince, baby.
I'm stopping by the Ravens' complex later today. If Steve McNair mistakes me for a pylon, we'll know his concussion is lingering.
