Good bat control - when facing a Yankees pitcher, always try to hit it towards the shortstop.

I must be dreaming, but Tripon hasn't reported the Mets/Oliver deal yet (3/36). Important for us as a lot of other chips seemed to be resting with this first domino.

24 Some guy tried to cut in line and apparently Cassel refused, so the guy shot directly on Cassel's pants.

If Kaman gets healthy any time soon, maybe the Lakers can trade with the Clippers.

Kaman has also been hurt every year and is out until the all-star break at the earliest. I'd think you'd be more interested in Marcus Camby which would give you a World Championship.
2009-02-02 13:11:06
33.   mwhite06
As a Clipper fan, I'm excited at the idea of Kaman and Randolph at the floor at the same time. Kaman can score in the post, and because Randolph is able to pop out and hit jumpers, the 2 could conceivably complement each other.

Lakers can feel free to take Davis though.

28 - one more reason for me to not like Joba.
2009-02-02 13:13:21
35.   trainwreck
32
Yeah, I should have explained it better. I meant when Kaman comes back, the Clippers would now have an excess amount of post-up guys and could trade one. Camby maybe being the best candidate.
2009-02-02 13:18:22

Al Davis believes the Raiders have been losing, because he let his head coaches pick too much of their staff (even though he barely let them do that).

Where is the Grim Reaper when you need him?

2009-02-02 13:20:49
37.   ToyCannon
33
Yeah, let me know when they actually play together. By then Gordon should have torn his ACL.
2009-02-02 13:22:00

Baron Davis should never shoot the ball for the Clippers unless it is a lay-up.

43 meet 19 and ensuing discussion. But more importantly... Waaaaahh! Andrew's gonna make me cry like this every season isn't he? I just hope they can weather the storm without him and then get him back healthy for the playoffs, unlike last year.

36 - Yes Al, it has nothing to do with your poor choices in the draft, or your calling plays from the owner's box, or the fact that you change your coaching staff more often than I change my underwear.

I've seen many a strange thing in the big public library. Some would make your skin crawl (those tend to involve skin that actually crawls), but today I saw something that has completely shaken me. I do not think I can ever recover from this sight.

It was stunning. It was horrifying. It was baffling.

There is a person in the library wearing a replica road Red Sox jersey with Julio Lugo's name and number on it.

It probably cost 5 bucks.

Remember folks, as we meet Giants fans this year, be sure to tell them "I can't drive... 55!!"

With Ethier's past bitterness about playing time, it's really no surprise he hasn't come to a deal. This just cements my belief that he's gone instantly after the 2012 season.

I think the reason she got a hit off of him is that her real name is Midge.

68 - I don't think Arizona can afford him. But, who knows what things will be like in 4 years. All I know is that Ethier is really good and he's ours for another four years at least.
