Spooky Express Random Thoughts.....
-- Interesting free agent baseball season. Is anyone dumb enough to give out contracts that last 8, 9 or 10 years? Haven't owners learned from the likes of Alex Rodriguez and Albert Pujols? As usual all it takes is one dumb owner. But if they all suddenly get smart will the players cry collusion? Can't wait to see what happens with Robinson Cano. As usual, the Yankees may wind up bidding against themselves. We shall see. According to CBSSports.com Cano and the Yankees are $150-million apart. A bridge too far?
-- I am told one million PS4 consoles were sold the first day they were available, just in North America. One thing I’ve successfully avoided are video games, but lot of people really like them.Read once where the wife of an NBA player had his video game stuff FedEx’ed to him on the road when he forgot it for a road trip- she was afraid if he couldn’t play video games in his hotel, he’d be out in the night clubs cheating on her. Lesser of two evils….lol
-- Matthew Stafford had 362 passing yards thru three quarters Sunday, then went 0-10 in fourth, as Detroit fell apart and lost to a sub-par Steeler team, 37-27. After Calvin Johnson, Lions have terrible receivers; the most expensive pizza in America this fall might’ve been the one Nate Burleson was bringing home when he got into an accident and broke his arm. Lions really miss him. As in really, really miss him.
-- The San Francisco Giants are expected to sign Atlanta free agent pitcher Tim Hudson. Hudson made a name for himself in the Bay Area with the A's.
-- The Giants, left for dead at 0-6, are now very much alive at 4-6. Sunday they have a showdown with Dallas one of the two teams they're chasing. Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul went into verbal hyperdrive saying "It's going to be a fight. It's going to be a dogfight. There's going to be a lot of blood spilled out there." How lovely. I'm starting to believe athletes should be banned from twitter. And maybe they should issue a gag-order period.
