Cole Hamels recent shutout innings streak is very refreshing. Seeing that left-hander on the mound and locked-in for the next six years is very comforting. (I was reminded of his importance after watching the great one 'Steve Carlton' during the past weekend's alumni ceremonies.)

With Hamels, a healthy Halladay and a clear-headed Lee, the Phillies can rebound next season. Yes, Amaro needs to plug some gaping positional holes. Being about to bounce back is far more likely with those three pitchers on your staff, than if they weren't. (This assumes that Amaro isn't made an offseason offer that he can't refuse for Lee to help fill the positional holes that were just mentioned.)


I don't really care how this season plays out. Andy Reid has earned something from me that he never had before - full respect.

The manner in which he has handled his son's death has said more to me about who that man is than any football games ever have.

I respect him deeply and wish him the best all around. God Bless him and his family.


The 76ers new ownership group is incredible. Now that this trade has apparently been made, the team has been transformed from last season's playoff group.

This has become a far more balanced squad through all of the offseason moves. Most importantly, they will be led by Mr. Doug Collins. That great coach is ready to take Philadelphia's basketball team to new heights.


The injury that Andrej Meszaros suffered last week (torn right Achilles tendon) was repaired by surgery today. Obviously Philly fans connected this dire dot to that of Ryan Howard's same injury (left Achilles tendon) that happened at the end of last season.

Losing Meszaros is very troubling for this Flyers team. I'm not sure how Holmgren can compensate. Basically he and Peter Laviolette need two of their young defensemen to step up and play well all season long.

Baseball cards

For those of us who are old enough to remember When Baseball Cards were King, the spring is always a special time of year.

Bygone days spent with elementary school days and family members opening packs of Topps cardboard gold never truly fade away.
