Can You Imagine An All-Chicago World Series?
Having thought that, I don’t know whether I would want to see an All-Chicago World Series or not.
It would be fascinating from one standpoint, dreadful from another. There is also the possibility of the Angels-Dodgers. That I don’t want to see. The best matchup on paper would be Angels-Cubs. The best for drawing interest: Cubs-Red Sox.
- First of all, Cedric Benson wasn’t an effective player for the Bears. Second of all, he’s had some serious off-the-field conduct issues. Thirdly, does either he or Shaun Alexander play defense? Because that’s the Lions’ real problem, isn’t it?
- Of all the Red Wings players, the one I’m most interested to see how much he has progressed since last season is Jonathan Ericsson. There were several flashes of brilliance he displayed during his brief stint with the Wings last season, although he is still raw. Once he refines his budding skill at that size (6-foot-5), he could be exceptional.
- Penn State hasn’t played anybody yet, but don’t be surprised if it emerges as the sleeper team in the Big Ten. It remains to be seen how he does under pressure in close games, but it appears to me like Daryll Clark is the best quarterback in the Big Ten. He’s an underrated passer and a terrific runner.
