Thursday, July 26, 2007A-Rod: The Best Ever?
“How old is he? Thirty-two?” Brett said. “He’ll blow by them. They won’t even be on the radar screen in five or six years. He’ll do it by the time he’s 38. That’s 40 a year, and he can hit 30 a year in his sleep. You tell him he can’t bat right-handed, and he’ll hit 30 left-handed.”

Anything happened today?
Leinart's Baby-Momma Drama: Remember yesterday's story about absentee father Matt Leinart. Well it's possible his baby's momma, Brynn Cameron, was doing a little posturing because you see the $6,000/month and new car that Leinart bought her wasn't enough. No, she wants the real cash, like $30 G a month. Meanwhile Leinart says he's all about the fatherhood thing and will go to court to prove it! [TMZ]
Bud Off the Fence, In the Stands: MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, enjoying a nice run of good vibes after scandals have rocked his golfing buddies, David Stern and Roger Goddell, has decided to attend Barry Bonds' record-breaking home run games if his schedule allows. Way to stick your neck out there Bud. Meanwhile NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will also be in attendance, not because it's a record but because Bonds is on his fantasy team. [Newsday]

Tuesday, July 24, 2007Matt Leinart: Lying Bastard...
"It's kind of hard for me as the mom — I'm with Cole probably 99.9 percent of the time — to open a magazine or read a newspaper article with Matt saying, Oh, I love being a dad. I love changing diapers. I love doing this. I'm like, Wait, what?' " said Cameron, who added, "I don't know how to word how he is about this, but it's been hard when I'm doing all the work, but he gets all the credit for it."
So goes on to say that the former Heisman winner "comes and goes whenever he wants" but she doesn't continue the assault, instead opting to say that their nine-month-old son, Cole Cameron Leinart, is being raised by two unique individuals.
Way to step up there, Matt!

The Run Down....
Miami Goes Nameless: Either Randy Shannon is trying to emphasize a team-first attitude or he's doesn't want any document evidence of his anticipated .500 season. Shannon's original plan of stripping off the numbers to the jerseys was not accepted. The day wasn't a total lost for Shannon, however, as his "no firearms" policy was approved by a 3-2 board vote. [Miami Herald]
Scoop & Stern Agree: Stern says that referee Tim Donaghy committed an isolated, rogue act and Scoop Jackson says that Donaghy's addiction should be the focus because there's NO WAY the mob ties or points shaving can be tied to sports. NEVER. [Page Deux]
When 100 Is Not a Good Number: If your team is on this list, you hate college football season. [The Bottom
