Just to say I posted something... Thursday picks against the spread

College Football
Vandy +10 over South Carolina. I wouldn't be surprised if Vandy won straight up. South Carolina's offense was horrible last week against NC State.

NFL
Giants -5 (4.5 if you're lucky) over the Redskins. New coach, new offense, defending SB Champs... not a good way to start the year for the Skins.

Overall I've been pretty good against the line in college and the NFL. College basketball... not so good.

I think the G-men number started at 6. In the end the oddsmakers had it right as it was only a 9 point game (with a lot of sweating by both sdes in the last minute).

Yankees are done... have been done since mid August. They didn't sweep the Rays, but took 2 of three. Looking at the makeup for the 09 team I doubt they make the playoffs next year either.

I thought the Twins/ChiSox would challenge the BoSox for the WC, but they seem to slip away. Still, I don't see the BoSox making it past the 1st round (where a run-in w/ the Angels spells doom).

The Rays have slipped lately, but that team even with injuries is loaded. I wouldn't want to run into Kasmir 2 or 3 times in a 5 or 7 game series.

I still stand by my ChiSox/Cubs WS with the southsiders winning it all (to DJC's dismay).

wow! the biggest payroll in major league baseball misses the post-season three years straight?

the old man would be pushing for a recall of micheal bloomberg.

saw an interesting piece on espn on the guys that rebuilt the rays franchise. two wall street guys with no baseball background.

two beancounters. got to be chapping hank's ass.

I'll be 2 years in a row if they don't make it next year. The curse of Alex Rodriguez will haunt this team for a while. The worst thing ever to happen was signing him after he opted out. It irritates me to this day.

$$88 million comes off the payroll at the end of this season and I assume they'll be spending some of it on Matt Holliday, Mark Texeria, and/or C.C. Sabathia. Still, there's some holes in the rotation and the young guns (Hughes and Kennedy) aren't living up to the hype.

We could be like the BoSox and miss the postseason one year and win the WS the next, but my confidence in ownership and the GM is not really high right now.
