Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

I did not know this! Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is brother-in law to James Caviezel who played Jesus in The Passion of the Christ. Caviezel is also a big Notre Dame fan - a real life touchdown Jesus... This is nothing short of an act of cowardice and not so subtle anti-Semitism by the Germans. If there is any justice - the Navy has a missle equipped drone circling Palestine or Lebanon or wherever this scumbag is with Mohammed Ali Hamadi's name on it. I would also suggest bringing our troops home from Germany. They are only in Germany for economic purposes at this point... Stallone knocked out while filming new Rocky film. The funny thing is the crew couldn't tell the difference between Stallone when he was acting and Stallone when he was unconscious... Looking at the list of MLB players who weren't tendered a contract and thus became free agents - the two names that jump out at me are Eric Byrnes and Josh Fogg. Byrnes would make a good fourth outfielder for the Red Sox. He could also start against lefty starters (career .862 OPS vs. lefties) instead of Trot Nixon (carer .632 OPS vs lefties). Fogg used to be the ace of the Pirates and is from Lynn, MA. He would make a very servicable 5th starter for the Sox or mid of the rotation starter for most any other team. list Al Nipper as the most similar pitcher through age 28. I'd take Al Nipper as a number 5...
