Surgery-Free Brad Lidge Ready for 2011
It’s been a tough two years for Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Brad Lidge. Since his magical 2008 season, where he went 48-for-48 in save opportunities and celebrated a World Series victory on the mound at beautiful Citizens Bank Park. Surgeries and on-the-field pitching woes made fans cringe as he took the mound in close games.
However, Lidge’s second half of 2010 was more reflective of the 2008 Lidge. He converted 21 of 23 save opportunities with an ERA of just above two, and CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury spoke with Lidge to gauge the closer’s mindset going in to 2011. Lidge is hoping to capitalize off the momentum of last season. View full article »
Good morning folks,
I know a lot of people who have started blogging, only to let it fall to the wayside a month later, maybe even a week later. It happens all the time. Talk to the people at WordPress, I’m sure they’ll tell you all about it.
You may have noticed that the frequency with which I post has suffered in the past couple of weeks. You may have already subscribed to the idea that in its infancy, I am letting this blog die. You’ve seen it before. You’ll see it again.
However, in the case of Ryan Gillon, and in the case of this blog… I can assure you that this is not the case. View full article »
Hooter is pissed...
If losing Al Golden wasn’t enough…
Today, CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell put together a nice piece on college football attendance for the 2010 season. In the article, he mentions the top three schools in the nation in terms of butts in the seats. Michigan and Ohio State ranked one and two, with Penn State coming in at 3rd with just over 104,000 per game.
Temple had almost that many… well… maybe not. They’re about 20% of the way there, though! Rovell writes: View full article »
Where will Donovan McNabb land next year? He wants to stay in Washington.
Former Eagles player and current Redskins third-string quarterback Donovan McNabb broke his silence this morning on his benching and even spoke on his future in the NFL. Here are a couple of blurbs I’ve seen across Twitter and elsewhere.
On learning Thursday that he would be benched: “Communication is key. You would like to hear it early. If you hear it late, it throws off a lot of guys.”
Was McNabb disrespected?: “You get in that situation and all of a sudden you get this news a couple days before the game, you do feel somewhat disrespected.”
Has McNabb heard from upper management?: “I haven’t heard from the owner. I haven’t heard from the GM. “
Does McNabb want to stay a Redskin? “I definitely hope so, and I expressed that. I don’t want to go anywhere.”
For years, the city of Philadelphia was forced to put up with a passive-aggressive approach to press conferences and interactions with the media. This is the one time where I would have loved to have seen McNabb go off the deep end and let his true feelings be known.
Benching a franchise quarterback for Rex Grossman is an insult. Sending your benched quarterback out as a captain for the coin toss on Sunday in a stadium he has already been embarrassed in twice? That’s another insult. The Shanahans’ handling of the Redskins this season, especially in the case of Donovan McNabb is embarrassing. McNabb had the right to go off.
But he never does, and he never will. Must still be lining himself up for that analyst job when he calls it quits.
