I am sorry about that I haven’t posted a lot this week. I have had a lot of work to do, but here are some quick thoughts on this weeks sports happenings.
Dustin Pedroia‘s contract is VERY team friendly considering what he brings to the Red Sox. He is their best player on that team, and this contract will keep him around for the rest of his career. The Red Sox did well to lock him up before Robinson Cano goes onto the free agent market. Cano might get twice as much money. I am hoping he doesn’t go for too much more and ends up in Baltimore. The O’s will have the best line up in the majors with Cano. Of course, they will need to fix the pitching.
The Alex Rodriguez saga is ridiculous. The Yankees definitely do not want him to play, and they are hoping that the MLB can suspend him before he can get on the field. They do not want to pay him this year, but we’ll see what happens. I just want him to give up and go home.
I feel really bad for Aaron Rodgers. He is a great guy for defending his friend. It is very unfortunate Ryan Braun did that to him and put him in that situation. I feel bad that he gets all the backlash when it is Braun’s fault. Rodgers’ trusted him and is a co-owner of a restaurant with him. There is supposed to be a second one built. I would say that is doubtful at this point. I’m sure this isn’t the only person Braun has to give some explanation.

You pick players for 8 tiers and if you win, you can win actual money with out putting any money down. You should give it a shot. Sign up and start playing. It is a lot of fun and I have enjoyed the daily fantasy games a lot since some of my fantasy baseball teams are flounder. Sign up play for the rest of baseball season and into football season.
