Someone Please Explain...

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

How is this man still employed as a General Manager in Major League Baseball? And how does he get the support of his team's CEO to come out publicly and say that his job is safe - despite the poor performance of his team, and more notably the free agent acquisitions that HE signed? The Toronto Blue Jays were humiliated for the second night consecutive night at the Rogers Centre by the Boston Red Sox - their eighth loss in a row.

The Blue Jays catch a bit of a break today - Roy Halladay takes the mound against Tim Wakefield, and if things roll out the way they have this year, Wakefield will probably take the loss in a game where he pitches well enough to win but gets little in the way of run support. Having said that, we like the Sox to sweep the reeling Blue Jays - do I hear 10+ straight losses by the Jays? Don't be surprised.

Toronto's two big franchises - the Maple Leafs and the Blue Jays - being led by two of the weakest GM's in their respective sports. We'll be back later with more on that.

The NHL Eastern Conference Finals start up tonight in Buffalo with the Sabres hosting the SenaTards. No sense in posting my breakdown on this series - you know I'm going with Buffalo in five games...yes, I'm calling for the Sabres to get their game together and steamroll the SenaTards. The Sabres still haven't gotten their A-Game going - but they will - and when they do, the Tards are going to be exposed as a team that can't keep up with a fast skating team like the Sabres. Sabres in read it here first.


Boston Red Sox P Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched seven solid innings at the Rogers Centre last night, giving up one earned run on five hits and three walks while striking out eight to lead the Sox to 9-3 drubbing of the Blue Jays. Honourable mention goes out to David Ortiz who had four hits, including a home run, and three runs batted in.

Chicago Cubs P Jason Marquis retired the first sixteen hitters he faced yesterday and wound up pitching a complete game shutout over the Pirates. Marquis finished the night giving up only three hits and striking out five for his fifth straight victory.

Seattle Mariners P Cha-Seung Baek pitched a complete game yesterday in Detroit, limiting the Tigers to two earned runs on six hits and striking out four.


Another solid day yesterday going 3-1 and finishing the day at + $180 - to raise the total for the week to a very respectable + $535. Today's suggested plays.

Detroit over Seattle - Verlander vs Jeff contest. Lay $100 on the Tigers - $245.
Cincinnati over Houston - for some reason the Reds throw up a lot of runs when Aaron Harang pitches...go with the trend. Lay $100 on the Reds - $145.

Los Angeles over Florida - call this one a hunch pick...Lowe has had some trouble on the road this year, but we like him this afternoon in Florida. Lay $100 on Red Sox West - $125.

Buffalo over Ottawa - the Tards are feeling good about themselves and about their game...that usually means bad things for them in the playoffs. We like the Sabres to crush their spirit tonight. Lay $100 on Lindy's "Ruff Boys" - $140.

That's about it for this morning gang - have a great one peeps!

Oh no...Fergie is going to be back

Sundin doesn't need surgery - didn't we hear that with Belfour?

Hazel, remember Peter Puck?

More stories on the Maple Leafs

Thank you Bob Elliot

Blue Jays fans are getting a little testy - just ask Richard Griffin

Focus on what you can do to get ahead or to enjoy yourself more. A trip will pay off as will attending a conference, tradeshow or anything else that will bring you in contact with people with whom you can network. 4 stars

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world - good time to be in Boston huh?
