The Bald Truth
This can't be a good thing for the Cubs:
Just about every time a team official discusses the long-term health prospects of ultra-fragile fastballer Rich Harden, the phrase "knock on wood" gets used.
I'm not making that up. Really.
The Balder Truth
Wow, what a day at the World Baseball Classic. I'm so proud to be Dutch!
What's that you say? My name doesn't seem very Netherlandy?
OK, you got me there. It's not as if Mike Nadel has the same kind of classic Dutch sound to it as Sidney Ponson does.
Anyway, we Netherlanders would have been in trouble had Alex Rodriguez and Aramis Ramirez been in the Dominican Republic lineup.
A-Roid and A-Ram absolutely would come through in the clutch - just as they always have in postseason play for the Yankees and Cubs.
THE BALDEST TRUTH
Young QB ... inexperienced offensive coordinator ... Dick Jauron, a coach who speaks softly and carries no stick at all.
Oh yes, absolutely, Buffalo sounds like the perfect place for a receiver who habitually blames everybody but himself when things go wrong.
And things will go wrong for T.O. and the Bills next season.
Should be fun ... for all of us who aren't in Buffalo.
