A Few Things 1/9

January 09, 2008 |

My thoughts are with our friend Craig Heist. Craig works for WTOP Radio in D.C. He is a regular on the Rob Long Show and is the hardest working man in the business. Craig collapsed at the Wizards game last night and is currently in the hospital. Keep him in your thoughts. Get well soon brother!!!
Roger Clemens held a press conference and told us how he will be happy when all of this steroid stuff just goes away. Hey Roger, I bet you won’t be as happy as us when you go away. Roger, we have eyes, we have common sense, we can look at the size of your body and the numbers that you put up as you got older. Please stop insulting us. We remember the roid rage when you threw the bat at Piazza. Remember when you said that you thought the bat was the ball?  If that was the case, then wouldn’t you of thrown it to first base and not at Piazza?
Rumors were flying today that Brian Roberts was traded to the Cubs. If and when that happens, it will be a good sign of things to come. Sure the Orioles will lose a lot of games but, they do that now. The 2003 Tigers lost 119 games and won the AL Championship 3 years later. Not saying that will happen with the Orioles but, you need to get young and take your lumps. Build the farm system up. Andy MacPhail knows that and it looks like Angelos may be letting him do his job.
Did the Raven’s have a plan when they fired Brian Billick? Was Ozzie in on the decision making? Who would you hire as the new Head Coach? Whoever it is, they are going to have their hands full. They are going to be expected to win right away. They are going to have their hands full with certain veterans that have been crying a lot here lately.
