UNC too Much for Duke

Duke had no answer for #5

Duke had no answer for #5

UNC pulled off the big win last night @ Duke. That’s now 4 in a row at Cameron. In the 2nd half, the Heels proved how scary they are when they play a little defense. How about Ty Lawson? He literally took over that game. Barring injury he’s played himself into a can’t miss lottery pick  for the ’09 NBA Draft.

Oswalt Speaks his mind

Houston’s ace, Roy Oswalt has gone public blasting A-Rod.

“A-Rod’s numbers shouldn’t count for anything,” Oswalt said in a phone interview with MLB.com. “I feel like he cheated me out of the game.”

He then went on to say this.

“The ones that have come out and admitted it, and are proven guilty, [their numbers] should not count. I’ve been cheated out of the game,” Oswalt continued. “This is my ninth year, and I’ve done nothing to enhance my performance, other than work my butt off to get guys out. These guys [who took PEDs] have all the talent in the world. All-Star talent. And they put times two on it.”

I applaud the guy for saying something like this but it’s a little late. Like he said this is his 9th year. It’s easy to say things like that now. And for all we know he could just be worried that maybe his name is on that list. Yep, thats the sad state of baseball. We have to question everyone’s motives. I have  99% confidence that Osawalt has always been clean. That’s saying alot. With the exception of possibly Greg Maddux you can only have up 99% confidence that anyone is and has always been clean.

Columbia South Carolina Loves the Spotlight

Why the hell else would they be trying to prosecute Michael Phelps for that photo? They’ve arrested a couple people already and it seems all the questions coming from investigators is about Phelps. There is no case here and it doesn’t matter how many witnesses come forward or they coherse into testifying against him. A photo means nothing. There are TV shows that show real people doing real drugs. There are photos of all kinds of famous people doing all kinds of drugs and counties don’t try to string together cases against these people. There is no way, in the court of law that any prosecutor will be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Phelps did anything illegal. Especially with the high priced lawyers he’ll bring to the circus. I do not condone marijuana use. But I absolutely hate seeing government agencies waste, time, money and resources on things like this.

Quick Baseball Recap

Slugger Adam Dunn has agreed to 2yr, $20million deal with the Nationals

Rick Ankiel and the Cards avoided arbitration by agreeing to a 1yr $2.35 deal

Dan Uggla was awarded $5.35 after going to arbitration with the Marlins

Last but not least, rumors are swirling that the Mariners have stepped up negotiations with Ken Griffey Jr. Personally I think it’d be great to see Jr. retire where he had the majority of his success.
