Woods Is On The Hunt Again

Posted in Bill's Blog
Tiger Woods has parted ways with his swing coach, Sean Foley.  At this juncture in Tiger’s career, this appears to be the crossroads for the world’s former best player. Wood’s has tinkered with his swing so much as his body has broken down that there is no clear path to the resurrection of his former ways. Don’t forget, Woods did win 5 tournaments on tour last year.  The one problem is that none of them were majors.  Even Woods himself has stated over and over again that tournaments are nice but success is all based on majors. Whatever Woods decides to do or whom he decides to hire, I have to believe that Woods will forever look back at his career and wonder “What if” when it comes to his 2002 split with Butch Harmon.… Read the rest

Fans And Cynics Alike Need Braun

Posted in Bill's Blog
We as fans scream how a franchise should go after the “big names”, “give them what they want or you’re not really trying to win”. Sometimes, not very often though, when a team doles out the bucks, things work out and that big contract pays dividends.  In Major League Baseball, we’re finding out more often than not that the bigger the contract the bigger the flop.  Bobby Bonilla, as recent as 2012 the Mets were still paying the retired player upwards of $29 million, Alex Rodriguez, Milton Bradley, Jake Westbrook, Juan Gonzalez, Manny Ramirez and even Prince Fielder have all received big money only to be gigantic failures.… Read the rest

How Can Manfred Give Us What We Want

Posted in Bill's Blog
Rob Manfred has been elected the 10th commissioner of baseball.  While there is labor piece, drug testing, revenue sharing, wild cards and interleague play; the one thing baseball hasn’t figured out is how to make the game more appealing to the younger viewer. Mr. Manfred, have at it. Attendance has started to lag and television ratings are down. The average age of last year’s World Series viewer was 51.  Why? Maybe because like former NBA Commissioner, David Stern, Bud Seilg directed MLB’s energy on forcing New York and Boston down everyone’s throat.  Baseball focused on Jeter and Big Papi and forgot about the Molina’s, the Lucroy’s and McCutchen’s of the world. … Read the rest

Break It Up….Maybe Not

Posted in Bill's Blog
You’re hot, sweaty and you’ve been playing physically against one another day after day with only 1 break thus far.  It’s a fact this time of year, guys will get into physical altercations during NFL training camps.  The Packers are no different.  The one difference at Packers camp on Wednesday was the fact that coaches got involved.  More WWE style (a lot of talk and not much being done) but you don’t see coaches get after it very often. Is this a dividing thing for a team, no, just the opposite.  It can bring teammates closer together plus you realize that the coach that you’re in the trenches with every day has your back and that makes for a better relationship.… Read the rest
