Rumour Du Jour

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

Big news/rumour out of Toronto - the word is the Toronto Maple Leafs are considering asking defenceman Bryan McCabe to waive the no-trade clause in his contract; while McCabe told the FAN 590 that the Leafs had not approached him to discuss any trade possibilty, speculation is that McCabe would accept a trade to the Islanders (his wife is from Long Island). We can only hope that John Ferguson Jr. will take a page out of Brian Burke's book and find a way to trade what was previously thought to be an untradeable contract.

JFJ, for me, for Tilt, for Hazel and the rest of Leaf Nation - MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Good night for Red Sox fans - Boston gets six shutout innings from Josh Beckett and a home run by David Ortiz to beat Tim Hudson and the Braves by a 4-0 count; and Red Sox West walked into Hazel's old house and pounded the Blue Jays by a 10-1 count. Brad Penny dominated the Jays last night - he kept them off balance with a great mix of 90+ mile an hour fast balls, 77+ slow curves and a killer change up. Juan Pierre stole three bases and scored three runs.

We've got to cut this one short today - we'll be back later tonight to talk a little NHL.

Minnesota Twins P Johan Santana pitched a complete game shutout, limiting the Mets to just four hits, in the Twins 9-0 win at Shea. Ok, so our upset special yesterday didn't work out so well.

Colorado Rockies P Josh Fogg gave the Rockies seven solid innings, giving up only one run on four hits and a walk while striking out three in a 3-1 win over the Yankees.

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has been on a tear lately, witnessed by last night's performance. Howard went 3 for 5 with a home run and four runs batted in to lead the Phillies to a 9-6 win over the Tribe.

Tough night last night, splitting our picks but winding up in the red - the total for the week is still + $85.

Oakland over Cincinnati - Dan Haren has been money this year, so there is no reason to think he'll drop one to Matt Belisle and the Reds. Lay $100 on the A's - $240.

Cleveland over Philadelphia - you have to like C.C. Sabathia at home, especially since Jon Lieber had his good start for the month the last time out. Lay $100 on the Indians - $215.

Detroit over Washington - another no brainer here, especially with the Tigers' bats booming. Bonderman over Bacsik. Lay $100 on the Tigers - $175.

Los Angeles Angels over Houston - we don't trust Wandy Rodriguez, and we certainly don't like the Astros to win a series in Anaheim. Expect the Angels to answer back after last night's loss. Lay $100 on the Angels - $180.

That's it for today gang - thanks for taking the time to check in. Have a great one peeps.

Hazel, I hope things are groovy in your world.

I'm Out.
