Cheap Shots #109

Rocket At Spring Training: Well, his son’s, anyway. Koby Clemens says his dad will probably show up at the Astros’ minor league camp. Looking forward to yet another media circus. Wonder if the kid had any questions about Dad throwing Mom under the bus. [Houston Chronicle]

D-Mac and Baby Mama Drama: Does this stuff come out now in order to dissuade teams from picking the Arkansas RB high in the draft? After he ran something between a 4.27 and 4.33 at the combine over the weekend, now we have two kids on the way and a paternity suit over a third? Hmmm… [Atlanta Journal-Constitution]

Bonds Headed To Retirement Central?: The Tampa Bay Rays have at least discussed the possibility of signing the home run king. Tony La Russa brought the idea up to the Cardinals’ brass, but they shot it down. [St. Pete Times, St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

Tiger Is Just Sick: The WGC Match-Play Championship makes the third time that Woods has won four straight tournaments. Like we need the Grand Slam hype to get bigger, but he could totally do it, if winning four in a row and six of your last seven tournaments is any indicator. [ESPN]

Possible NFL Competition?: So, this whole UFL thing with Mark Cuban as one of the owners is apparently going to happen in 2009, and with the specter of labor issues with the NFL coming up, there could be some interesting consequences. [Pro Football Talk]

Ow, Ow, Ow: After Arsenal’s Eduardo da Silva took a nasty cleat to the shin, here’s a compilation of some of the worst soccer injuries. [Unprofessional Foul]

Imitation Is The Sincerest Form of Flattery, Right?: I swear I don’t recall Yahoo doing a one minute sports rundown with a female commentator before; it looks like they’re kind of ripping off the FanHouse Minute.   Anyone care to verify who was first on this? [Yahoo Sports]

  1. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, Tiger is going to be blowing it up in 2008!
