Phils' pitcher Kyle Kendrick opened spring ball by being traded to Japan...or at least that's what Brett Myers, the entire team and the media wanted to make him think...

I honestly wonder why this doesn't happen more often. I have been tempted to do it in pick-up games.

Great story from Dave Kindred about the lady who has hit 16 holes-in-one in the past 6 months. Or has she?

Among all the bashing of Travis Johnson, I do reluctantly have to say my peace: Travis Johnson was right.

He wasn't right about taunting Trent Green after the QB was unconscious on the field - but watch the play. Green cut Johnson at the knees. It was a dirty play. I know we are all supposed to constantly go on about how wonderful Green is and what a tragedy it was that he was hurt, and I am sorry he got hurt. But it was his own fault, in my opinion.

Update: The NFL has announced it will not fine Johnson for taunting Green. Why? Because they say he thought he was reacting to a dirty play. Watch with your own eyes:

On NBC Sports, the vote was 2-1: Cheap Shot.

Some of the Cleveland Browns are the latest to say what I think everyone is realizing: the New England Patriots have no class whatsoever. This after Mike Vrabel apparently dove at the knees of Cleveland Brown lineman Joe Thomas in the waning seconds of New England's 17-point victory.

It's just the latest in a serious of low-rent moves by New England. We all know they've been docked draft picks by the NFL for cheating. Last year, it was LaDanian Tomlinson commenting on how little class some of the Patriots showed after their playoff win in San Diego.

Is New England good? Yes. Are they a bunch of losers? The evidence is growing.

Credit the Kansas City Chief mascot with a key assist when some moron runs on the field. Good for him.

The guy who bought Barry Bonds' #756 ball is letting the public decide. We have 3 options:
  1. He can donate it to the Hall of Fame
  2. He can donate it to the Hall, but brand it with an asterisk
  3. He can destroy the ball

It's up to us. My vote? I want it in the Hall. But I want it branded first.

Last week it was reported that former major leaguer Bill Henry had died in Florida at the age of 83.

Now this week it is being reported that he is alive.

So who died?

Get this: a guy who spent the last 20 years of his life impersonating former major leaguer Bill Henry. The real Bill Henry is alive and well and living in Texas.

I am glad to hear Henry is still alive, and mean him no offense, but I have to ask: Why the hell would someone pretend to be Bill Henry? Not Whitey Ford. Not Bob Gibson. Bill Henry.

I have no punchline here.

A lot has been made of Lovie Smith in the last year. He's supposedly straight-laced, runs a tight ship, gets compared to Tony Dungy a lot.

One problem: what Smith says and what he does are two different things.

Anyone who spent a night in college has a strong suspicion of what happened and what was involved when Lance Briggs wrecked his car in the middle of the night, then abandoned it. But not Lovie. He's basically mad anyone is asking any questions at all.

But is this a surprise? Lovie looked the other way during the Tank Williams fiasco, and hasn't exactly shunned Ricky Manning, Jr., either.

Today in the Chicago Tribune, Rick Morrissey has a great column about Smith entitled "An Enabler? No Question." Smith preaches against evil, but is incredibly careful to make sure he sees none. As Morrissey puts it:
Smith doesn't cry wolf. He cries lamb. One of his players could be holding a gasoline can and standing near a house fire, and Smith would complain about fuel prices.

So spare me the talk of Lovie and his straight and narrow path. His actions clearly show that whoever can do whatever and he'll see things differently. The only difference between the Bears and the Bengals is Cincy got a few year head start.

Miss Teen USA, as a competition, only thinly counts as a sport. But I don't care. You have to see this answer from last night's week's competition:

If there are suddenly blue-chip running backs popping up all over the south in a few years, you may want to thank Denver Bronco Travis Henry, who apparently is turning into the Johnny Appleseed of ball carriers.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Henry has fathered 9 children by 9 different women across 4 southern states. Apparently this is causing him some child support headaches. The story says when Henry was a Tennessee Titan, he had to borrow almost 10 grand from the team to catch up one one child's back payments and avoid jail. His attorney says Henry has "significant financial issues."

But he is darn potent.

J.A. Adande has a fantastic column in the wake of NBA-burnout Eddie Griffin's death. Adande calls Griffin "Exhibit A in the argument that just because you can enter the NBA, that doesn't mean you should."

Too much emphasis is put on grabbing the money any time and any way you can these days. Not enough emphasis is put on learning how to handle the money & fame before you get it.

People love to point to Kobe or Kevin Garnett. Not many people point to Taj McDavid or Lenny Cook or Leon Smith.

Or Eddie Griffin, dead at 25.

What a game. Nothing like tacking on 16 runs in the last 2 innings to pad that 11-run lead.

My favorite part? No question: Wes Littleton notching the save. The scorekeeper needs to be tarred and/or feathered for that one. Kudos to Littleton for not blowing the 27-run lead. Over at Fox Sports, Ken Rosenthal says this might not be what was intended when the save rule was invented.

By the way, the Rangers 30 still falls 17 percent short of the Chicago Colts' 36-7 hammering of the Louisville Colonels back in 1897. Julio Franco went 2 for 5 with an RBI in that one...

God knows I hate the Giants, but props to Eli Manning for firing back at Tiki Barber's comments about him.

Barber, who is suddenly and without reason omnipresent on NBC, questioned Manning's leadership skills earlier this week, calling one of Manning's motivational speeches last year "comical."

Manning answered back yesterday:
"I guess I could have questioned his leadership skills last year with calling out the coach and having articles about him retiring in the middle of the season, saying he's lost the heart. As a quarterback, you're reading that your running back's lost a little, the heart, him playing the game, and it's about the 10th week."
Guess what? Eli's right. Barber clearly didn't give a damn about the team last season. As the clock ran out on the Giants' playoff loss to Philly last year, I remember Barber all smiles and shaking hands. It was a playoff loss, but he didn't really seem to care. Tiki Barber always seemed to me to be all about Tiki Barber. He's one of the more self-aggrandizing players I can remember. And if he'd "lost his heart" last year mid-year, why not leave then? Why put everyone through the ridiculous farewell tour?

So kudos to Eli for calling it right. Now, if only he could throw...

All-time Rawlings Gold Glove Team (Number of career Gold Gloves)
C Johnny Bench (10)
1B Wes Parker (6)
2B Joe Morgan (5)
SS Ozzie Smith (13)
3B Brooks Robinson (16)
OF Willie Mays (12)
OF Roberto Clemente (12)
OF Ken Griffey Jr. (10)
P Greg Maddux (16)

So the all-time Gold Glove team has been named. Any comments? Omissions?
  • Joe Morgan doesn't seem as obvious as most of them to me. You could have put Robbie Alomar or Bill Mazeroski (or even Ryne Sandberg) over Morgan.
  • As for Wes Parker, how can J.T. Snow not be the guy? Or even Keith Hernandez?!?
  • And I definitely would have picked Jim Kaat (16 straight from 1962-77) over Maddux, who I think is overrated as a fielder. But then again it is pitcher...
  • Sudden thought: No Andruw Jones? Really?????
Other things, of course, cannot be argued...
