And The Horst Era Begins

Posted in Bill's Blog
“I’m not excited”, “it’s a safe pick”, “there isn’t a wow factor here”, “where’s John Hammond when we need him” and finally “LOVE IT”….these are all the things that were said via twitter immediately after the Bucks took D.J. Wilson (PF from Michigan) with the 17th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Short of the John Hammond comment, those were my thoughts exactly. This isn’t a flashy pick but what do you expect, in reality, when you’re picking at 17?  The Bucks are needing solid scorers, defenders and hopefully they end up with the rim protector that’s so desperately missing but this is about adding pieces around Giannis, Middleton, Thon and Parker.… Read the rest

Language Can’t Be A Barrier

Posted in Bill's Blog
USATSI_10094834_168381909_lowresShould players who come from other countries, to the United States. to play professional sports, be forced to learn the language? That’s a recent discussion when it comes to baseball and some foreign players. Phillies CF Odubel Herrera and Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka both have very little understanding of the English language and thus when on the field, they require translators to accompany the coaches. Boston Red Sox TV analyst Jerry Remy has a problem with that. On Tuesday Remy said in regard to Tanaka, “I think it should be illegal. Learn baseball language. Learn — it’s pretty simple. You break it down pretty easy between pitching coach and pitcher after a long period of time.” Phillies Hall of Famer, Mike Schmidt, has apologized for stating that the team couldn’t build around the talented outfielder Herrera because he can’t relate to his teammates.… Read the rest

USATSI_9833287_168381909_lowresTiger Woods was found asleep at the wheel. That seems to be a bit an appropriate metaphor for his career in the current day wouldn’t ya say? While Golf’s former world #1 wasn’t drunk, as a matter of fact he blew a 0.00, he was indeed impaired and he had to have known it…or at least had some idea.  Woods did cooperate with police and did admit to mixing prescription pain medications. What chapter will this be written as in the life and times of one of golf’s greatest players is yet to be decided but you have to ask yourself, how much farther can Tiger fall? … Read the rest

Harper’s Cockiness Makes Him A Target

Posted in Bill's Blog
USATSI_10079987_168381909_lowresThe Harper / Strickland brawl that sparked the benches clearing between the Washington Nationals and the San Francisco Giants was one of the better fights that baseball has seen in a while. However, there are a few points to note regarding this melee.
1.  When the Nationals Bryce Harper charged the mound and attempted to throw his helmet at the big right hander, he threw his helmet more towards the second baseman instead of the pitcher.  That was embarrassing.
2.  Harper, who’s become a cocky target, was his in the hip by a 98 mile an hour fastball.  If you’re going to receive any kind of retaliation, Strickland threw a perfect pitch. … Read the rest
