Rants: Lenny Dykstra …who admitted on Colin Cowheard’s show the Herd that he hired private investigators to get the dirt on umpires so he can get good calls at home plate…how low can you get to do that ?Seriously? Talk about undermining the interigty of the sport and not to mention going so low as to blackmail authority figures …he possed more of a threat to baseball than Pete Rose did and yet he is in baseball and Rose isn’t in the Hall of Fame?
Rants: Roger Goodell… not satisfied that the league lost it’s case against Tom Brady in Deflate gate they now filed an appeal …let it go seriously, unless Brady admits to anything which he won’t this is a dead issue plain and simple. Goodell needs to spend his time in better ways than to waste taxpayer dollars on glorified gamesmanship.
Rants: Joseph Randle …left the Dallas Cowboys‘ facility on Wednesday for personal reasons the day after learning he had lost his starting job, a move that reportedly frustrated team officials. Which was bad enough, but this just added to the growing mess that has happened in recent month for the running back…Randle ran afoul of the law twice in recent months amid allegations of shoplifting, domestic violence, and marijuana possession. Schefter indicated that it was a February incident that triggered the NFL’s investigation; Randle was arrested in Wichita, Kan. for possession of marijuana after police received a call from the mother of Randle’s son saying Randle broke a car window and threatened her with a gun. While those charges were dropped, the NFL continued its investigation. All this after saying that he was looking to be more of a team player and less of a complainer …”I just want to be somebody good around the locker room that’s not always mad about this and mad about that, making sure that I’m not a cancer in this locker room,” he said. “So I’m not going to be the one complaining for carries and all this different stuff like that. That’s not how I’m going to play.” I guess going AWOL is being a team player for what team?
Raves:Don Mattingly…It didn’t take long for Donnie Baseball to land in Miami as the Marlins new manager. He is armed with a new 4 year contract…he has played for George Steinbrenner so he knows a thing or two about impatient owners. Question is will Jeffery Loria give Mattingly to turn the Marlins into a winner and stop the revolving door on managers under his ownership?
Raves:New England Patriots …I hate to admit it the Jet fan in me doesn’t want to say it …The Pats are running away and hiding on everybody in the AFC…can anyone beat the Pats please? The Jets gave them a good scare only to lose in the end , then the Pats beat the Dolphins now they are 7-0 …so when was the last time the NFL checked for deflated footballs on the Pats?…yeah I thought so.
Raves:Chris Paul…recently went on record saying he wants to finish his career as a Clipper. Things have changed a lot in Clipper land, there was a time when players would say they would rather be anywhere than be a Clipper and now CP3 wants to end his career in Los Angeles as a Clipper. Wow!
