The Boston Red Sox will win the AL East

Albert Pujols is on pace to hit 324 Home Runs this year

Mark Buerhle will win another Gold Glove-
Video Clip

Carlos Zambrano will be traded at the deadline- 1.1 IP, 6 H, 8 R, WHIP 6.00, ERA 54.0

Justin Hayward will retire as the All-Time Home Run King

The new
MLB.com website is really, really slow


Duke may have won the NCAA National Championship, but they didn't beat Butler. (Yes there is a difference.) It was a great game but I still hate Duke and their arrogant, pretenious program that exudes a sense of entitlement.
ESPN had exclusive coverage of the Cubs opener and it was interrupted for Tiger Woods press conference. WTF is that?!!?

The oldest living member of the Hall of Fame is Bobby Doerr. Happy Birthday Bobby. He is 92 years old and one of the
most affordable Hall of Famers.

Career: RedSox 1937-1951, 223 HR, .288 BA, 1247 RBI, 2B, HOF in 1986, 9x All-Star

His earliest cards are 1938 Goudey and he also has cards in the Playball sets for '39-41. You can see a current sampling on eBay

The next several inductees into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, after 2010 enshrinees, Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone, will all have had their RC's produced in the era of junk-wax. So sad.

The Chicago Blackhawks clinched their first division title in 17 years!

Press Pass' marketing of Danica Patrick borders on exploitative. If they really think NASCAR fans and collectors are dying for her stuff, they don't know that market AT ALL. See their latest sell sheet.

Don't forget that Pirate Garrett Jones is also on pace for 324 dingers in 2010. Should be a fun race to 100, 200, 300...

P.S. I couldn't agree more with hating Duke. They suck.
