This past off-season Larry Sanders of the Bucks said all the right
things as the team was dismantled and put back together with 11 new
players. He talked about being a leader and making sure he controlled
his temper which led to all kinds of on-court problems last year. The
highest paid Buck was expected to help new coach Larry Drew bring the
Bucks back to respectability. Well...that lasted about a week. Sanders
has already received a couple of technical fouls in games and earlier
this week got into it with Luke Ridenour in practice. Drew was not
amused and is trying to nip this in the bud. The Bucks cannot be a
contender for a deep playoff run without Sanders playing well. But if he
hasnt grown up enough to control his temper it's not going to work.
The Badgers have looked at a sophomore and freshman to take over field goal and extra point duties. Jack Russell and Andrew Endicott are competing this week to see who will have the job saturday night when Wisconsin plays at Illinois.
The Red Sox could go back to the World Series for the 3rd time in the last ten years. They can close out Detroit on Saturday at Fenway. The Red Sox bullpen has been lights out. Some of the Tiger hitters have struggled mightily especially Prince Fielder.
The Cardinals can close out the Dodgers tonight. I'm still hoping for an LA-Boston World Series.
