Locks in a minute, but there's some major baseball to discuss. First of all, somehow my man C.C. Sabathia was able to steal the AL Cy Young from Josh Beckett. Not sure how that happened, not even I would have voted for Sabathia over Beckett, but I'm happy for the guy none the less. Another congrats to Eric Wedge, AL Manager of the Year.
What's going on with George Steinbrenner? Has he finally gone soft? We were already to kiss A-Rod's New York career goodbye, and now he's back in the Bronx. Though he's the richest man in sports history, I think he'll regret the decision in a few years, there's only so much of Yankee fandom (or criticism really) that one can take.
And, in case you haven't heard, Barry Bonds was indicted the other day. I've made my stance known, but I'll say it again. I hope they drop the hammer on this guy.And it's not just him. I feel the same for a lot of other guys, like Clemons and McGwire. Maybe people wouldn't feel this way if the guy wasn't such a jerk. It's all over now Barry Bondzilla.
At last, the end of an era
OK, Now for locks.
My locks for last week was for Notre Dame to go against the spread or something like that, I don't really recall it (or do I want to). But I do remember my pick of Dallas to cover against the New York Ginats, which was a success. For this week, I got West Virginia (-6.5) against the Cincinnati Bearkats, and in the NFL, the Chicago Bears (+5.5) to suprise against the Seattle Seahawks.
Grossman is back in the saddle again for Chicago.
Zorgon had Tulsa in a masterlock against the University of Houston, and Buffalo, who successfully covered against the Miami Dolphins. For this week he had Arizona (+12) against the spread vs Oregon, a pick that proved promising for Zorgon last night. In the NFL, he has Cleveland (-3) covering against Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens.
Almost as good a pick as whoever had the "over" on the over/under in this game.
Frost's picks for last week were Virgina over Miami (win) and Chicago over Oakland (also a win). This week, he hopes to make up some more ground with Tennessee (-12) to cover vs Vandy, and Cincinnati (-3) to cover against the Cardinals.
I wouldn't like this pick if Jay Cutler will still the QB for the Commodores
1) okluschen 10-5-1
