Wednesday Morning's Are Like...

-It appears that Manny Ramirez and the Dodgers have agreed to a two-year deal, worth $45m. I'm still a little shocked that the Dodgers were willing to pay that price for Manny when it appeared that there were no other suitors for his services. But then again when you have the best agent in the business on your side things tend to work in your favor.

-Speaking of Boras clients. It appears that the Yankees may ask Alex Rodriguez to skip the World Baseball Classic. A-Rod has been experiencing some stiffness in his hip which has developed a cyst according to an MRI. Now I don't claim to be a doctor, but can't a cyst develop after receiving injections? Hahahaha. Oh boy.

-The Coast Guard has suspended the search for 3 people missing on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent Corey Smith, and former South Florida player William Bleakley have been missing since Saturday. Just a sad, sad story.

-According to Giants GM, Jerry Reese his team would welcome back troubled WR Plaxico Burress, assuming Burress' legal problems were all cleared up. Is there ever going to be a point where a team in any sport is going to tell a player to just stay away? We don't want to be associated with known felons, who shoot themselves in the leg. I understand that Plax might be able to contribute to your club, but at what cost? I think we will see some of this when Michael Vick is released from prison this summer.

-It was a happy senior night at Cameron Indoor last night. Big game coming up this weekend against North Carolina where the ACC Regular Season title will be on the line.

-The NBA writers over at Sports Illustrated have handicapped the NBA's awards season with a month and half to play. Call me a homer, but if the Jazz finish in the top 4 of the Western Conference and Jerry Sloan doesn't win Coach of the Year it will be a travesty.

-Maybe LeBron should have followed Dwight Howard's advice before the game. It would have made Anderson Varejao happier.
