BPD can’t use Quick Hits because that is a Sun-Times piece but I find it to be too fluffy. Don’t get me wrong I love the gratutious photos but if you are gonna hit em…hit em hard.
BLAM!!! Bernard Berrian is a good receiver and a good person. He is NOT worth the money he is asking. The Bears feel pressured because of the mediocre free agent and college draft talent available this season. However, the Giants showed the world you can win without top notch speed at the wide reciever position. That being the case let BB go and sign free agent WR Bryant Johnson and Dante Stallworth and draft 6′ 4″ James Hardy from Indiana.
BLAM! BLAM! Mark DeRosa stood strong all winter against the rumors that Brian Roberts was coming to Chicago and there would be no starting position for him. He was confident saying the starting job was his. Well Mark, we love confidence but it does you no good if you drop dead in between 2nd and 3rd base. Cubs, go get Roberts and stop screwing around. Mark will be utility man and that is that. Something tells me his heart isn’t in it anyway.
BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! Kirk Hinrich should be excited about the new fire power on this Bulls team. They are the youngest team in the NBA. They are more athletic than any team in the NBA. Finally, they have been scoring over 120 points per game lately. How does Hinrich celebrate this accomplishment. By playing like a little bitch against rival Indiana. Newbie Larry Hughes stepped up. Newbie Drew Gooden stepped up. Hinrich took a step down…and out. Kirk was benched by Bulls head coach Boylan who is taking a tough stand against lazy play. I think maybe it is time to activate Duhon of the scratch list and add Whiner Hiner.
BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! Final drive-by of the day is towards the mighty Blackhawks. They had every opportunity to deal the overpaid, often hurt Martin Havlat over the last few days. Teams wanted him and Montreal was close to getting him. So what happened? The Hawks couldn’t get a deal done and Havlat goes out and hurts himself last night. Way to go BLACKHAWKS!
