Sports tidbits for Wednesday

More baseball stuff gong down today, the pennant races are getting hot.  Here's some of my opinions of what is going on.

  • The Braves acquired Derrek Lee from the Cubs for 3 pitching prospects.  None of those pitchers is considered a top prospect.  Lee, will fill in for Troy Glaus , who will head to the DL.  Lee is a great defensive 1st baseman, but he has had a down year with the stick.  Decent pickup for the Braves, but I feel the Phillies will catch them.
  • The Rockies are on the verge of releasing outfielder Brad Hawpe.  Hawpe has had an awful year, but a contender will jump on him.  Texas, San Francisco, St. Louis, and Boston come to mind as teams that may seek his services.
  • BYU is leaving the Mountain West for football.  They plan to be an independent, and have their games broadcast on BYU-TV.  Their plan is to spread Mormonism through this network, which already reaches 80 million homes.  I will boycott watching their games, since the Mormon's will try to brainwash us.  The Mountain West plans to invite Fresno St. and Nevada to join the conference.
