GOLF: Tiger’s Back

I haven’t written a lot of posts about Tiger because I get accused of being obsessed with him and focusing too much on him — but him shooting an out-of-nowhere 63 forced me to write.

After missing the cut 2 weeks ago at the British and shooting a ho-hum-with-horrible-putting 71 yesterday, Tiger came out this morning and had 8 birdies, 1 eagle and 1 bogey to shoot that great 63. It threw him right back into contention at the Buick Open, and proves again that while we may think he’s in a slump, we should never underestimate him.

According to the NY Daily News’ Rich Cimini:

[New York Jets] RB Leon Washington ended his one-day holdout, showing up for the first training-camp practice this morning at SUNY-Cortland.
It’s believed that Washington still has not received a new contract, but negotiations are continuing.
The two sides had made progress in recent days, but as of late last night, the talks had hit a standstill, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. Evidently, Washington had it in his mind that he was going to come to camp no matter what, deal or no deal.

That’s good to see. Now, Mr. T, give him the contract he deserves.

Anyone who lives here in the Northeast knows how wet its been, but in Pittsfield, Massachusetts it’s been so wet the Wahconah Park is under water and you can’t play baseball.

MLB: Mets Fire Bernezard

The New York Mets have fired Tony Bernazard, the assistant general manager who had some anger management issues come to light over the last couple weeks. It’s really the only good thing the Mets have done lately.

They have become, at times, the laughing stock of baseball (with all their fielding issues), and also the team baseball feels bad for, with arguably 3 of their 5 highest profile players going down with serious injuries. However, this incident — a shirtless tantrum at minor leaguers — is a despicable act whether the team is 0-81 or 81-0. The 2010 Mets will be feeling refreshed next year, with a sense of hope and the knowledge that (hopefully) everyone will be healthy. And now they know, for the rest of this year and more importantly next year, that the assistant GM won’t be around to cause trouble either.

MLB: Roy Halladay To Be Traded?

When it became clear that the Toronto Blue Jays were willing to trade star pitcher Roy Halladay many thought that a bidding war would commence. It has, but mostly in the media, it seems. Many teams were told that they’d have to give up a ton of prospects to get him. And that turned them off. So it has mainly been between the Phillies and the Blue Jays — Philly not wanting to part with both of their top prospects, and Toronto demanding it. The trading deadline is Friday, and there are some thoughts that Halladay won’t be traded.

I do, however, and I think it will be to the Phillies. Using the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as a second team to make the Phillies worried, Halladay will be traded in the waning hours of Friday, in my opinion, and Philadelphia will be on their way to a second second straight national league pennant.
