  1. Liked him as a player. No managerial experience. He definitely has married well...
  2. The Chicago White Sox agreed to a six-year, $68 million contract with Cuban free-agent first baseman Jose Abreu on Friday, according to multiple reports. It is the largest initial free-agent contract ever given to an international player. It is also considered a risky move by the White Sox because Abreu is relatively unknown. However, Abreu does have an even better track record in Cuba than the Oakland A's Yoenis Cespedes and the Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig. Abreu batted .453 with 33 home runs and 93 RBIs in 63 games in the 2010-11 season, while missing time with a shoulder injury. The previous season, he batted .399 with 30 home runs and 76 RBIs. Abreu, 26, defected this summer. He is expected to take over as the White Sox first baseman. Paul Konerko is a free agent and was scheduled to discuss his future with general manager Rick Hahn. Abreu, who is 6-foot-3, 250 pounds, batted .360 with three home runs and nine RBIs in 25 at-bats in the World Baseball Classic in March. To afford Abreu, the White Sox shed about $40 million from their payroll, including trading right-hander Jake Peavy to the Boston Red Sox and sending outfielder Alex Rios to the Texas Rangers. Konerko made $13.5 million this season while pitcher Gavin Floyd earned $9.5 million in the final year of his contract. The White Sox, who were last in the American League in runs scored, are trying to add power to their lineup. In addition to the right-handed hitting Abreu, Chicago also got outfielder Avisail Garcia in the Peavy trade, which should boost the middle of the order. Several teams were interested in Abreu, including the Rangers, Red Sox, Houston Astros, Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants.
  3. Playing fast and loose with the term "Washington NBAers" aren't you? Kind of...

  5. Still no... It should stay the Redskins... The Wizards should be changed back to the Bullets... While we are at it, change these previously renamed colleges back to: St. John's Redmen Syracuse Orangemen Miami (OH) Redskins Hawaii Rainbow Warriors (there maybe others)

  14. Picked up for the full season... The drama domination this fall continues with another pickup for a freshman hourlong series. ABC has given a back 9 order to Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., bringing its first season to 22 episodes. The series premiered as TV’s highest-rated drama debut in nearly four years and, while it has slipped in Week 2 and Week 3, still ranks as the No. 1 new show of the 2013-14 season among adults 18-49 with solid DVR gains (4.0 Live+Same Day rating/5.7 Live+3 rating). Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. joins Fox’s Sleepy Hollow and NBC’s The Blacklist as the third new series this fall to get a pickup (second season and full-season for the other two dramas, respectively). Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., which marks Marvel’s first television series, was co-created by The Avengers’ Joss Whedon, along with Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who serve as executive producers along with Jeph Loeb and Jeffrey Bell. ABC Studios is co-producing with Marvel.
