Daily Links: September 23, 2008

What's up everyone? I'm filling in for Justin today, as he said that he's a little busy for the next couple of days. I apologize for the lack of football news. I couldn't seem to find anything; maybe I just didn't look hard enough.

Baseball

“He’s a little tender.” Those were four words that Terry Francona said once he realized what Julio Lugo’s new situation was. According to RotoWorld, it was said that Boston Red Sox’ former starting shortstop felt “optimistic” about playing again this season. According to an article in the Boston Globe, Lugo was feeling pretty good about “possibly” starting again during this season… until he pulled his left quadricep once again while taking infield practice [fielding groundballs]. According to Boston Herald, if he gets the chance to play, the shortest time he’d have to wait is after the first round of the playoffs.

It looks like Joe Crede has played his last game for the Chicago White Sox. A free agent after this season, Crede’s locker has been cleared out already, as well as his nameplate. He is currently trying to recover from back problems. For more information, go to this link that leads to the Chicago Tribune.



Pedro Alvarez has agreed to a new deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates. The no. 2 draft pick for 2008 have reworked a guaranteed $6.355 million according to a Monday report by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Alvarez will sign the contract following a physical later on this week. For more information, click on the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette link here.

Many of you know Wally Joyner as a baseball player in the ‘80s to early 2000’s. However, in case you didn’t know, he was the San Diego Padres’ hitting coach this season. Anyway, getting to the point, he turned in his resignation letter to GM Kelvin Towers on Monday. The Padres’ main problem, according to many people, has been their offense, so I’m surprised they didn’t let him go since they were able to win 89 games last season, and have only been able to win 61 with 6 games left to play. “It bothers me a lot that I have come to the point where it is clear that I need to move on,” Joyner said. “I came to the job hoping to put my experience and ideas to good use in teaching and coaching the Padres' hitters, but it has become obvious to me in the past few months that the organization's approach is different from mine.Click on the San Diego Union Tribune link here.

Basketball



Sacramento Kings’ Shareef Abdur-Rahim has officially announced his retirement. The 12 year forward played with the Vancouver Grizzlies, Atlanta Hawks, Portland Trailblazers, and of course, the Sacramento Kings. He made the 2002 All-Star team, and was a member of the U.S. Olympic team in 2000 (who won it all that year). We thank you, Shareef, for your diligence on and off the court. Here is a link that leads to more information about his retirement, his accomplishments, and what he had to say.

In other news, The New York Knicks just can’t seem to get rid of Zach Randolph. Knicks president Donnie Walsh was most recently in discussions with the Memphis Grizzlies. However, it has been said that the Grizzlies decided to pass on Randolph. Poor Knicks…


Until next time, this is Romi Ezzo, saying goodbye.
