Hump Day Thoughts on Sports – 10/3/12

So we got the refs back, eh? Were you still complaining when your team was called for offsides or for a false start or for pass interference? That’s what I thought! As long as someone is in the pinstripes on the football field, they will be screamed at and boo’d by all.

Baseball is just beginning for the chosen few that have made it to the playoffs. As of press-time time there are still match-ups to be worked out and wild card games to be played. How about those Athletics though?? Battling all the way back to win the AL West! What a great story! Moneyball was a motivator!

Hockey = White. Hot. Garbage.

So, as soon as tomorrow there can be people on the chopping block. Which people? Managers, general managers, etc. Names that come to mind? Valentine in Boston and Beinfest in Miami. The Phillies have already cleared their coaches out and they are a team that before last year had 9 straight winning seasons. Fair? Maybe or maybe not, but it is what it is.

Time for my Mets to make some decisions. How much are they going to spend? Do they want Ike or Duda? Will they PLEASE give David Wright his extension and get Dickey signed for the next couple of years. Can we forget about the second half of the year and build on the first half?

Miguel Cabrera = freak of nature. Enough said. Well not enough – Triple Crown? WOW! Hasn’t been done in 45 years. Amazing.

Why on earth did the Knicks sign Rasheed Wallace? They are just getting older. Ugh.

That’s about all for this week! Hope your hump day is going well and that you’re on your way to an enjoyable weekend! If I missed something or if you’d like to battle it out on something you didn’t agree with feel free to leave a comment!

Talk to you guys next hump day!
