I think the ATL is a great pick tonight, but be careful taking that under (9) on that Rangers / Rays game, as Texas has been putting up some very crooked numbers lately. They may get the 9 on their own.

The reigning Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw is coming off a loss where he didn't pitch well and tends to be really tough against the Giants at At & T Park where he is 4-2 with4 4-2 with a .97 ERA. I know they're going for the sweep but don't forget the Giants swept the Dodgers earlier this year and this would just be payback.

your line up looks great. Only negative I see is a small one in Texans D. They have slipped from their usual high production rate the p***ed 2 weeks. Texans D is playing a division game on the road, but have had 10days to rest/repair. Texans D does play a weaker overall offense in the Titans, but Chris Johnson has put up good numbers against them in the recent past. Like I said, overall your line up is great, but beware the Texans D could fail again this week.

We're having the spending debate? Look these teams are owned by billionaires. They can afford to spend money. The Pirates aren't owned by Joe Blow who has to work a double shift at the plant to put food on the table. They're owned by a billionaire who could pony up and put a decent team together, but chooses to pocket the money. I'm a liberal guy and I'm all for the working man not getting screwed, but f$&@ these already rich owners who cry poverty.

The whole "you have a higher payroll wahhhhh" thing is a bit over played isn't it? HAven't we seen teams like the Dbacks, Angels, Marlins, ChiSox, Cards and even RedSox before their huge payroll win championships? It obviously can be done, and teams like Rangers/Rockies/Rays are making WS appearences without spending. So obviously it can be done. It's not like the Yanks have been in 15 straight WS. Get over it. The only people who cry about payroll are the only people who's teams lose. It's a sad way to take the attention off of your teams loss. There is a reason the YAnks are lowering payroll because they are aware it hasn't worked. But when you have bloated overpriced contracts from 3-5 years ago, it takes time. But it's not like they are going to stop trying to win as well.less

Why do Yankee fans have such a problem admitting their bloated 200 million dollar payroll is a massive advantage? Do you honestly think its their player development and their shrewd trade skills are why they have made the playoffs 17 of the last 18 years?

Yo, This is Nicky at we’re gonna get out of our comfort zone tonight and jump into a little MLB playoff action. In the late game on Tuesday I like the Oakland A’s to stave off elimination and beat the Tigers at home. Oakland is 6-2 over their last 8 games and 5-0 at home. The crowd, the time change, will both play a factor in game 1.

Wait until next year ! It's obvious the Dodgers are committed to spending the big $$$$. True, it's been a long time but 2013 will prove to be rewarding. Once a Dodger fan always a Dodger fan. Unfortunately, a lot of people ride the band wagon and aren't really committed to any particular team. Call me old school but thats the way it should be. The Giants will always be a big time rival and I truly hope they are eliminated in the first round ....more

The Cards are tied for the Wild Card lead and need to keep the pace. The last place Padres are in "scouting mode" and evaluating talent for next year, so I don't look for them to be putting up much of a front.

It’s been highly publicized that the Irish gave up a ton of p***ing yards to a non-p***ing school in the Naval Academy and when they match up against a pro-style offense like Purdue’s they could give up even more. This is a game where Purdue could even win this on the field as 372 p*** yards in their first contest is a good harbinger that they should be able to keep this one close.

Actually, he also said that they would admit female members 'over my dead body'. And the 'liberal MSM' couldn't care less, only covering it because there was a protest at a major event.

Like many ardent Armstrong admirers rallying to his defense here, I also applaud his accomplishments, but NOT the ethics of cheating to attain those accomplishments. That's what's really on trial here - sad and disappointing that so many commentators here utterly fail to see the difference, and in fact many seem to feel getting away with it for so long somehow justifies his actions. And that supposed witch hunt ? Something like 10 close former teammates testifying against him ? Everyone's out to get him, and also destroy pro cycling ? Really ?- Why ???

So now it's official -the drug tests mean nothing. So when we strip Lance's title, who are we going to give it to? Someone else who didn't fail a drug test?! Unless he's been investigated as closely as Lance, that will mean nothing. This comes down to cash - the USADA is as competitive as the cyclists, they wanted a win, and they had unlimited funds - OUR MONEY - with which to fight this. Ridiculous.

So Armstrong is guilty of being accused? There really is no concerte evidence. He was tested many times over the years in France and passed them all. The US anti-doping agency obviously has an ax to grind and will stop at nothing to take Lance Armstrong down.....Hincapie-respected? you neglected to mention he's a doper....Prior to Armstrong, most Americans never paid attention to cycling, and now, we can go back to ignoring it again. Nice job taking down the best chance your sport had of making it to the family rooms of America.

This is wrong. The stupes on the Anti-Doping Planet were responsible BACK THEN for detecting or proving that Armstrong did anything wrong. It's too late now and it's wrong to try to go back now to "fix it." If they failed to do their job back then or didn't have the testing ability back then that they do today, leave it alone. Armstrong should not have to bear responsibility today for their failure.

To me, Lance Armstrong was never a hero because he won. He was a hero because he was faced with a terrible case of cancer spread throughout his body in notoriously hard to cure places and he beat it! He had a purpose and will to live, so he did. He wrote a book that inspired millions of people to not give up. As a person who has had a cancerous tumor removed as recently as last year, I will continue to wear my LIVESTRONG bracelet with bride. Yea I suppose he cheated to help win those titles, but those victories are secondary to his lasting accomplishments.

Do you remember what you were saying a few years back ? I mean, what the Americans were saying when here, in France, doctors, journalists, and well-informed circles claimed that Lance Armstrong was a dope addict ? It was not a battle against America. Not even against Armstrong himself (despite his huge arrogance). It was not jealousy. It was only a genuine attempt to open your eyes on a tragic reality. A genuine attempt to say the truth. Thank you Travis Tygart.

I will venture to disagree that this tarnishes his legacy. Lance's legacy remains intact. He is an extraordinary athlete and human being who accomplished great things and continues to accomplish great things, despite the apparent need to the USADA to assault one particular individual. I await the USADA's efforts, no doubt already planned and ready to go, to chase after every other single bicycle racer since the 1920s. All have undoubtedly doped with one drug or another, be it amphetamines, EPO, steroids or what have you. I'm through with the Tour, but I stand with Lance.

From the Lakers perspective, acquiring Pau Gasol was not about having the better player in 2013... it was about winning championships. Marc may be better than his brother at this point but the trade has already paid off big time for L.A. with Pau playing a crucial role in two Lakers titles.

Where do the Magic hire their GM's? Do they just put ads in the paper and hire the first idiot who applies? First Otis Smith...now this moron. This trade is historically bad for Orlando. I'm pissed and I'm not even a Magic fan. I can only imagine how actual Magic fans feel right now. They basically gave up Howard for a paper bag filled with dog poop. Actually the dog poop would have been more useful...at least you can fertilize your lawn with it.

I'm hard pressed to give any validity to your arugument about not getting Bynum or Gasol. As Bynum has proven to be a headache (ie D. Howard saga part 2) and Gasol is old (please reference your own comments about Harrington). I feel I don't even need to mention that they would get nothing for him 1 year from now. But in light of that, 3 1st round picks, Harkless, and Vucevic seem like a pretty good trade and can actually end up in 5 starters. Vucevic is a 7 footer (maybe 20 of those in the league) and you must have not watched much college ball this year if you think Harkless isn't a 1st rounder (you and I both know you watched plenty of basketball and we both know you're wrong on this one. Unless you think both NBA and College Scouts all misread his talent, of course). Those alone combined with 3-6 remaining first round picks over the next 2 years can pretty easily equal a whole team for one dysfunctional "super star".

ONTHEINSIDE - What does "The NBA" in the content you're speaking of have to do with anything? You make it sound like the boogeyman. Stern had the power to nix the Paul trade last year because, technically, he was part owner of the team as it was owned by the NBA. This has nothing to do with them. Orlando needed to get SOMETHING for a six-time all star and would have gotten much less if they waited to the trade deadline. Does it make LA a powerhouse? yes, but they were making moves and it's not like Bynum was a chump change give-a-way, a 24-year old all-star with huge potential that was a common denominator of every deal that was presented to the Lakers. The only real question is why this didn't work out in Houston.
Posted by: NEO
Three points on the Orlando front: 1) Didn't they get rid of Duhon's crappy contract too, not just Richardson's? 2) The problem with getting Gasol is they'd win more games. If you're a small market team looking to win a title, you need to bottom out and pray to get an Anthony Davis/Kevin Durant/LeBron James/Tim Duncan type of franchise player. You alluded to this briefly in your post, but it's worth mentioning again. 3) That said, I have no idea why Orlando wouldn't have entertained a better offer from Houston.

As an Angel fan I can say the bullpen is bad but it isn't this bad - the Angels have been extremely unlucky this season. We need to release Wells and eat his contract. We also need to trade Bourjos for some quality set up men... The dodgers are loaded with a great bullpen,,, perhaps start there. This team next year will be awesome though.

Yo, this is Nicky the Fish and we split our last two games as the Dodgers refused to show up against the DBacks and got swept in their own crib to give us one in the loss column, but the Ranges battled and with another comeback got it back for us. Sow we’re 4-1 our last five and time to get back to work. On Friday night I like Giants (-153)to break their two game losing streak and to take care of business against the Rockies on the road. The Giants have Vogelsong on the bump with a 2.22 ERA and 8-5 record against a Rockies club that is already out of the NL West race and don’t have the guns stay with the Gmen. That’s the evening chowder, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

first of all stars don't just crumble under the pressure. they qualified first in the pre-lims and they ended up in fifth place as a team. on individual events only leyva qualified for horizontal bar. that's pretty bad considering orozco won us nationals and leyva won p-bars in the worlds last year. all in all pretty disappointing.

The worldwide Penn State nation doesn't need affirmantion from anyone to know who we are, what we stand for, and how we will get beyond this stain on our history caused by the actions of so few, but affecting so many. We are much more than football , our football team has always been about much more than football as evidenced by their consistent high academic standing among all Division One teams, and we will get beyond this by concentrating on what we always have, the family unit that reaches beyond itself to serve the greater good. It's the administration and the Board that have done the least to reflect the values of Penn State, how disheartening to see an entire country buy into the attack on those the least responsible for enabing the monster Sandusky.

I'm still waiting for the NCAA to actually punish the people responsible for the coverup - the president, 2 VP's, the entire board of trustees, the PA AG (now governor), the investigators responsible for letting Sandusky off in 1998, the janitor who refused to report him in 2000 and anyone else that didn't do their jobs. how about they fine spanier, curley, schultz and every BOT member and then go after paterno's family, unless they can figure out a way to punish paterno himself at this point.

Emmert said, "The fundamental message here, the gut-check message is, do we have the right balance in our culture?" he said. "Do we have, first and foremost, the academic values of integrity and honesty and responsibility as the drivers of our university? Or are we in a position where hero worship and winning at all costs has subordinated those core values?" I am afraid that Emmert is delusional when it comes to the culture of football about which he was speaking. When I hear players being interviewed who can barely utter a simple sentence and others who appear to be partially brain dead I have to wonder why they are referred to as student athletes. There is no "student" in a great many of them. College football has, as Emmert says, become too big to fail and the many examples of the dolts we are giving scholarships to only enhances his words. ESPN is as guilty as anybody relative to this Culture of Football when they go to extremes to exploit middle school kids and make high school kids think they are national heroes because ESPN showcased them on national tv. College football and basketball are big jokes and will continue to be as the money involved is just amazing. Are we any better than the Romans sitting in the Coliseum?

I heard both Meyer and Bielema have said they won't pursue Penn State players. Classy thing to do on both of their parts. I'm unsure what would happen if a player showed interest on joining either school though.

Lochte is class of the US Team this year, Phelps had his day but Olympic competition is so different than any other, once you pass your prime, you're damaged goods and its time to be replaced.

All of the Penn State alum and students decrying the penalties and bemoaning the punishment prove the necessity for this harsh penalty. Academically, Penn State is an average university without top-notch programs; unlike those who attend and attended, for example, Stanford, Duke, and the Univs. of Michigan, Virginia, and Texas, Penn State students and alum got their school pride primarily from the football program, which was really the only top-ranked program at the school. This resulted in the football program being able to aggregate so much power that Penn State, as an institution, both condoned and provided means for Sandusky to perpetrate his crimes. Both Penn State as an institution and the football program are culpable; both must suffer. The students who actually want to attend Penn State for the academics still can do that; those students will lose nothing because this does not impact the standard academic programs. The alumni who believe the value of their degrees have diminished really are only seeing the value of the Penn State degree revert to their degrees’ actual values based on the quality of the academic programs, rather than the value imputed to it by the football program. Because the value of college degrees should be based on the academic programs rather than the football program, this adjustment in value is fair. Live with it.

Take it easy on the PSUers and let them rant, as they're victims here too. They had their beloved program destroyed by those they trusted to protect it. Also, it's their last chance to be heard until the documentary 25 years from now when the next 2-3 generations of college football fans are shocked to learn that there was a time when Penn State was relevant.

If the BoT at Penn State had any sense, they'd close the doors on their football program now. Nothing, not sanctions nor sanctimonious public relation speeches, is ever going to change American football culture. IF you really want to change the culture and the power behind college football at Penn State, shut the program down. Anything else is just pure balderdash.

Penn players transferring out to other schools? I thought football players attended PSU for the purposes of getting an education. No? Would it not be hypocitical of the NCAA to allow transfers since Mark Emmert believes academics should not be compromised by football?

Penn State chose to be a horrible warning instead of a good example.

YES Sandusky was a very bad man and did very bad things to children. However it is CLEAR that Paterno and others at Penn St knew what he was, or at least had a good idea and did NOTHING for 14 years. Think about that, let that sink in. If Paterno had half the character some of you give him he would of stopped Sandusky back in 1998. By his actions he allowed a man to RAPE young boys for FOURTEEN years. How many lives were ruined in those years? And you are worried about his win/loss record?...

Why take the wins away from Paterno? What is this accomplishing for what Sandusky did? He got a trial why didn't Paterno get a trial before his demise? How far back did the NCAA decide to go to take his wins awaY? What a crock of bs. Punish Paterno because the higher ups didn't do a damn thing and covered it up. Take away the legacy of a man that served Penn State and their damn football program and then strip him, no pun intended to the abuse victims. They are the reason I understand but there is such a thing as going to far and again no pun, but the NCAA did that and now they they have the power back in their hands what university is next...almighty goveriing body bs..you guys went to extreme and its going to backfire on you.

II saw where the Paterno family only spoke complaining about the sanctions handed down to Joe. For them to do that, and neither provide significant evidence proving Joe was innocent nor show remorse for the victims and compassion for them and their famillies, that is freaking pathetic. The family I do feel sorry for them and their loss, but they need to shut the hell up and go away. They are putting shame on themselves.

This was a total domination. If any Euro thinks the Spanish are going to unleash a 'secret weapon' or Marc Gasol is going to make a 20-point difference they don't know basketball. Shall we step up to the podium now?

Why is everyone so hard on the 2012 team? What the critics need to keep in mind is that the competition the 92' team played was not nearly as good as what the '12 team is facing, not by the longest shot. The 92' team was very old in some spots and not as athletic. That game would be closer than people think

Yo this is Nicky and it may have been very stressful down the stretch but we picked up another win in the NBA Finals, and I don’t wanna see any more post a about how stupid it is to buy the hook because that saved us again and you should never let that ½ point take food off your table. Ok, tough one tonight so let’s get to it. In Game 4 I like the over 191.5 (once again buy that hook) as this is OKC’s season and dream tonight and they know it. If they go down 1-3 then go ahead and fit Miami Thrice for rings so they will come out and go down shooting. As well pla*** defensively as last game was it still got close and I expect the Thunda’ to shoot much better in this game. Also the line is 3 so don’t throw OT out of the picture. That’s the chowda’, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!

Yo, this is Nicky and we've hit our last two in the NBA, correctly called the Kings to close out, and even hit our first EuroCup game as well. Let's keep the mo' going with the NBA Finals where I like the Heat +5 (buy the hook) in game one. Get more data on the Player's Club Blog

Yo, this is Nicky and can you belive the C's are 2 point dogs at home!? There must be a ton of people that believe the Heat are not going to let themselves go down in flames for 2 years in a row and I'm drinkin' the punch as well!

Watch out for the Germans in the tournament. They're already a 3/1 fav to win it but if they make it out of the Group of Death as the top seed I can't see anyone taking them out.

The Spurs shot their last bullet in Game 5 and the tidal wave that will be the OKC fans will drown the Spurs in game six.
