I'm going to try to get these posts done in a more timely manner. Although it doesn't matter this week, because I am out of bold predictions for the NFL. It just better be Patriots/Packers or we're all getting ripped off.
So the Green Bay station is taking Seinfeld off of the air because it will upset Eli Manning? That doesn't make any sense. If it is his favorite show and you take it off, then he'll be bored and he'll put in video of your team and actually prepare for the game. Hey geniuses, how about a Seinfeld marathon?? All Seinfeld for 48 hours straight. Have him up all night laughing at Kramer's antics. Dammit, why am I the only smart one sometimes?
And finally, if you missed it, the Chicago Cubs have made the following statement to the world: In 2008, the arm of Jon Lieber is more valuable than the arm of Mark Prior. For $3.5 million, the Cubs brought back its ace from about 1999-2002. Prior would've cost just as much. Even if Lieber doesn't get a starting spot out of camp, it's still an excellent signing and a great insurance policy. Worst case scenario, he uses his experience to lead a squad of young pitchers by sharing the expertise that led him to a 20 win season and a very good career average at Wrigley, even if he's only throwing out of the bullpen. Best case, he becomes the #4 pitcher and earns double-digit wins.
