We all think we know Colby Rasmus. Sure we do. Hell of an athlete, occasionally seems to not have his head all the way in the game. Quiet kid, awfully shy. Maybe not the brightest bulb in the scoreboard, if his interviews are any indication. Or, then again, maybe he's just too shy to interview well. ... More >>

I liked all three of Cincinnati's relievers, in fact ... More >>
Well, I think it's pretty clear by now the 2010 Cardinals aren't going to lose a game this year. I can honestly say, after viewing them for two entire games all the way through, this may be the single greatest athletic entity in the history of the world.

So it looks as if Al Hrabosky will continue to pollute the airwaves for at least one more season. He is apparently close to signing a deal with Fox Sports Midwest to once again broadcast games alongside Dan McLaughlin for the 2010 season. Thus the circle remains unbroken, and we are all forced to ... More >>
