This Week in Baseball

This week, the sports world has been glued to the Beijing Olympics....

So let us get you up to date on what's been happening in Major League Baseball.

Two of the mighty (during the '90s) ........died this week. The New York Yankees and the Atlanta Braves. The Yankees have lost 7 out of their last 10 to fall 9 1/2 games out of the division lead.

The Braves were swept by the Chicago Cubs this week and fell to 10 games out. The Cubs won every game against Atlanta this year fo
r the first time ever.

Manny Ramirez was asked by new manager (Joe Torre) of his new team( the Dodgers) get a hair cut........and he did. His dreadlocks still extended down his back.....but were about an inch shorter. Well.......he did as he was told.....he got a hair cut. Manny ....being ...Manny.

Prince Fielder jumped in the face of Milwaukee Brewer pitcher, Manny Parra, after Parra had pitched a loss against the Cincinnati Reds. A shoving match ensued......the two had to be separated . This was on August 4..........After that, the Brewers won 8 in a row. Club house so over-rated.

The Barry Bonds rumors are heating up again. The latest is that the Tampa Bay Rays are entertaining thoughts of signing Bonds to help their offensive line-up down the stretch run of the pennant race. It sounds nutty.....but.....The Rays are young......they need a DH......Bonds and the circus that will surround him will take the pressure off the rest of the team. This may well work.
