Quote of the Day
"Do you want to know the terrifying truth? Or do you want to see me sock a few dingers!?" -- Mark McGwire character in an episode of The Simpsons, first aired in October, 1999
1/12 - I can’t decide whether Mark McGwire’s steroid admission is a big story or a ho-hummer. It was undoubtedly therapeutic for him. But when he says, “I wish I had never played in the steroid era,” it’s hard not to react “but you were instrumental in creating the steroid era.”
In the category of “maddening”: I got sucked into Corey Brewer a few weeks ago as an emergency replacement when Tyreke Evans was injured. Take notice of Brewer’s production from Dec. 29 through January 9. I actually didn’t hold him through that entire 7-game span. Then look at his game last night (Jan. 11). It’s those games that give him a moderately respectable average, but if you don’t happen to be on board for those occasional outbursts, you’ll be disappointed.
