Rick Rickert's blog, as posted at the Gopher Hole, and I'm not even kidding.
I didn't spend a whole lot of time there, but it seems this New Zealand league he's in must be as easy as Dusty's Australian League, since Rick had a 39 point, 19 rebound game his first time out in that league. It's actually pretty boring. No comments on making one of the worst draft-related decisions in the history of the league.
Baseball playoffs - expect the Rockies in 5, Indians in 7.
Game 1 of Indians/Red Sox is heavily tilted in the Sox favor at the books. Indians are +142, with Sabathia on the hill. I don't care who is on the other side, Sabathia should never have that poor of odds. He pitched against the Sox only once this year, but held them to 1 run on 5 hits in seven innings, striking out 7. Sure, Beckett pitched well against the Indians, giving up 0 runs in 8 and 2 runs in 7 in his two starts against them, but it's not a +142 matchup, not at all. It's a good bet on the Indians.
