Obviously coach Craig Berube leaned on other guys as he shortened his rotation to play catch-up. As he expressed after the game, all those turnovers drove him nuts. It's safe to say that Kyrou has yet to win over the Chief. I'd give him lots of minutes to let him develop, but I'm not a guy driving to win every game possible while filling the coaching role on an interim basis.
The sun rising. Don't book the parade for the Warriors just yet. From time to time, they look human. Steph Curry gets hurt, Draymond Green gets butthurt, Klay Thompson goes into a shooting slump . . . stuff can happen.
Yes, the what-ifs. But like you say, the what-ifs worked just fine for Keith in New York. And he got lots of post-career value from his time with the Mets. Those same opportunities don't arise if he finishes his career here.
I don't believe the Red Sox see themselves leaning on faded relievers to finish games. Like a lot of teams these days, they will use different guys in different game scenarios. And if that team does need another high-leverage reliever or two, it will have the money and trade pieces to go get help during the season.
He has to go Rams, right? If the Rams return to the Super Bowl, we'll see lots of "Greatest Show on Turf" flashbacks that put him back in the spotlight. And like you said, Belichick left him permanently scarred psychologically. I can't image him rooting for the Evil Empire.
That could be. He was fabulous early last season, arguably one of the very best players in the NHL. We have not seen that player since then and I don't know why. He doesn't have the same jump and he isn't as assertive offensively.
It would have been fun to have them in the Dome for a year, but whatever.
Sure. We almost got a Mizzou-Arkansas State game here. Given the disappointing attendance in Columbia, I could see the school looking at both Busch Stadium and Arrowhead for games down the road. I know the first priority is to fill the remodeled Memorial Stadium, but the right opportunity could come along. A lesser school (like Arkansas State) could decide to move its home game here to take the money.
He's a team broadcaster so of course he wants the team to win. That's his job. But Mike can be very hard on the team when it struggles, just as Jack Buck was. Shannon has never been afraid to hurt somebody's feelings when he got sick of watching the same failure over and over.
Of course, entertainment options aren't limited to pro sports. There is so much to life than just the National League Central race.
I will always say Bob Probert was the best because he just didn't care. Once he got punched a couple of times got interested. And man he could do damage. Another favorite: Giant Gino Odjick. We vilified him after this outburst and he loved the piece. He asked us for copies of the paper.
As for a memorable fight in the STL, how about Tony Twist's demolition of Rob Ray?
Sure. You study personnel across the league and then track developments more closely. The better handle you have on personnel around the league, the more capable you are to add perspective to your analysis. For instance, if you are in fantasy hockey this season, you know that goaltending across the NHL is insanely uneven. So when fans ask about alternatives to Jake Allen, you know what the marketplace looks like. And in this case, it does not look good.
That seemed to be the initial take. Given the nature of the injury, why rush him? Thomas skated on his own at practice today, so that would indicate that he is progressing and perhaps he could be ready coming out of the break.
But it's not like the Cardinals have been a laughingstock. Along the way management made a few mistakes, like giving away Steve Carlton over a few dollars.
Well, he is still one of the team's better players and he generally plays smart in his zone. So I would say no, assuming he is more or less healthy. Just keep pushing forward while hoping he somehow regains his old stride.
I am the wrong guy to ask about Hall of Fame comparisons. I spend no time pondering that issue.
The matches are in Australia so, no, event organizers aren't overly concerned about the U.S. television ratings. I'm guessing that rights fee collected isn't big enough to dictate major change.
