Whitt's End: 4.29.11

Whitt's End - reaper.jpg

​Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:

*Most surprising thing about Cowboys first-round draft pick Tyron Smith? According to scout Walter Juliff, he's related to a former Cowboy with the same last name. Goes by the name "Emmitt." Cool.

*Also, how's this for bravado from a 20-year-old who's played 24 games of college football: "I think I have the potential to be a Pro Bowl player," Smith said last night, "and a Hall of Famer."

*With two lips on last night's NFL Draft but one eye on Mavs-Blazers, I figured the early 33-19 Portland lead was Dallas getting ready for Game 7. Shocking, impressive comeback and 103-96 win. As if advancing past the first round weren't enough, winning consecutive games in the wake of the Game 4 collapse signals a different Mavs mindset.

*As previously stated, I don't think the Mavs can beat the Lakers, especially considering Game 1 is Monday night at 9:30 in Staples Center. I'd like my chances a lot more if Game 1 -- and a potential Game 7 -- were at AAC. Damn you Kobe. Anybody else remember his overtime-forcing 3-pointer in the last game of the NBA's regular season? Also -- again -- screw you, San Antonio.

*So there's a big group of us in a suite watching Charlie Sheen last Wednesday night at AAC and I got the bright idea to splurge. Case of beer. Bottle of Captain Morgan. Twelve Diet Cokes. Wings. Hot dogs. Sandwiches. Talk about sticker shock, the bill was ...

*If you're scoring at home -- and I know you are -- I get a win for predicting Tyron Smith, a loss for predicting a Mavs Game 6 defeat but also a win for predicting a Mavs series triumph. Meat Loaf would be proud.

*Hot.

*Not.

*For all the Mavs' fascination and obsession with beating the Lakers, the teams haven't met in the playoffs in 23 years. It was 1988 when the Mavs -- led by Mark Aguirre, Rolando Blackman and Roy Tarpley -- pushed the eventual champs to a Game 7 at The Forum. Bad result, but good times.

*Sad to see Newy Scruggs leave 105.3 The Fan. He was my first full-time radio partner and I learned so much from him during our 9-month on-air marriage. His last show is this morning 9-11. Knowing Newy, there won't be any Mike Snyder-Jane McGarry "I love you" good-byes. Starting Monday New School with Shan and RJ will expand 5:30-10 and Josh 'n Elf will go 10 a.m.-2 p.m., leading into yours truly with Greggo.

*If you're a fan of UFC, you're a fan of The Fan. In the last week we've had on Jon "Bones" Jones and Georges St. Pierre and tomorrow night Richard Hunter will host a UFC 129 pre-game show 7-8.

*Good Perfect time for the draft and the Mavs to bury your Rangers, because things aren't good. Another bullpen oops by yesterday Darren Oliver -- aided by neutered hitting and a rare Adrian Beltre fielding gaffe -- and all the sudden Texas has lost four of its last five series.

*By the way, happy birthday to you. Sorta. On Sunday this lil' corner of the blogosphere turns 3. Seems like just yesterday we were just learning to crawl.

*Smith is a good pick and all, but the Cowboys still have holes to address in today's second round and third rounds. Namely, safety. But when Jerry Jones said late last night that Dallas tried to move into the first round to grab a player, the target was Cal defensive end Cameron Jordan.

You forget Red Sawx luvin Kergie. Although I don't expect to hear much from him with his team sporting the 3RD WORST RECORD IN THE A.L. right now and the visiting Mariners going for the sweep today. Man, that 0-11 with RISP was some pretty powerful stuff for the RS nation last night. That's an awful expensive .155 that Crawford's batting right now.

Maybe Newy sees the writing on the wall-a station that is a failed attempt at sports talk radio and a total failure ratings wise.

I guess he figured 0-2 (remember his stint at the 4 letter network) is enough.

First Sean, then Barsky, then Jagger, now racist Newy, and hopefully your next, you bring the show which is on such a high straight to the toilet. There's a reason the Ticket has done so good for 18 years, YOU WEREN'T ON IT!!!!!

For what it's worth, Lacey Gee is gone. They said today that she is going to be the producer on 106.1 FM in the morning, I believe.

Don't say "high" to Greggo's broadcast partner.

Caught the last half hour of Josh and Elf and they were saying goodbye to Lacy. Did the Fail finally fire her? Are they doing layoffs since Newy is gone as well?

Josh and Elf need a lot of help to keep my attention, I tune them out regularly. Looks like the only show I have left on a daily is RAGE.

After 3:20 pm all terrestrial talk radio sucks in the DFW market. Yeah The Hardline gets great ratings but since they moved Corby from yuck monkey to over laughing and reporting bad or dated information, they have sucked. I guess they'll keep ruling the afternoon as long as the rest of the market sucks more than they do. I'll listen to music until further notice.

To bad about Newy. I thought he had the best show on the station, with Josh & Elf second. Personally Richie, if you wouldn't play a jerk on the radio and be a lil' more genuine .....I think the show would be better. Just my opinion.

Dear Ghost of Bam Bam, I fixed this part for you dear sir: "Personally Richie, if you were not a jerk and were not on the radio and be a little bit less of a lil' asshole midget.....I think the show would be better. Just my opinion."

good day boys. Wonderfully crafted whitts end this week. Nice to finsh my sportatorium reading with a gem. I continue my push to knock that slant eyed korean reliever out of 1st but JBS is making a strong push. Scruffles my friend, you should just drop every player on your team ranked lower than the top 5 available by rank and move on. I cant beleive I kept ryan cumdumpster so long, he finished with an ERA of 189.00 yestereday.

Was really happy the mavs won, I went to sleep though, figuring they were going lose only to wake to a happy ending (unfortunately Im still talking mavs, not wife). Mavs in 6 over lakeshow. So on your baby doll appearances, are you going to make it to the dumpy one on the north side of arlington (I know technically Ft worth), If so watch out, one of the girls there likes to be fingered in the butt according to my friend, but id be glad to come meet ya'll on this side of town.

Welp everyone have a good weekend and more Sybil's Beaver, thats the most creative character on the board right now

I have one more note about the good strong SFBL, when you aquire a SP and put him the lineup for the next day, it will screw up your rotation for following days ..if'n you've already set your lineup..Somebody said they missed a couple of starts last weekend and didn't know why..I try to set my lineup for the weekend games too, but stay away from them free agents if you do.

Good strong weekend and I might make it to #3...take care fellow Sporty's. (It's rarefied air up here in the 60 point range..I'd been in 40's so long, it's taking me a while to catch me breath.)

Sybil's beaver doesn't hold a candle to kergo. But if she did hold a candle to him, he'd prolly want her to put it in his ass. Ever since he lost his job as richie's fluffer in richie's series of gay midget wrestling porn films, poor ol kergs has been taken it awful hard...

...In his butt.

Scruffygeist listen to this man..that's where/how I found every OF on my team and all buut Linc and the great John Danks in my rotation. And what am I doing now? Anybody? Oh hell ok....wait for it....WINNING! (In a middle of the pack kind of way..Y'all have a good weekend boys, if'n any of y'all make it out to LJT this weekend..find me and I'll bum a beeera off of ya.)

Stop it, ya freaking vultures. I'm not shoving my guys out the nearest airlock so you can scoop them up on waivers. A lineup featuring Votto, Uggla, Crawford, Ichiro, and Hunter should be able to hit over .200 collectively.

And pitching I got. It's April. I'll blow it up and do a bit if it looks the same in July.

Scruffygeist
Scruffygeist

Uggla is first on the jettison list. Ichiro is hitting about .320, he may be aging and on a putrid offense, but he still provides average and steals. Crawford and Hunter can't possibly stay horrendous.

I'm not far behind in any offense category. Those guys getting to status quo and I shoot up the standings.

ScottsMerkin
ScottsMerkin

Look I dont want to vulture your lineup, But uggla has a track record going back to the end of last year. the dude aint worth your time, Hunter has me confused, Crawford will turn around and so shoudl Votto, but in rotisserie, you cant get to far behind in catergories not based on averages or it will be difficult to catch up. Ichiro could be nearing the end, he looks a step slow. Anyhow, do what you gotta do, but if you dont want to just drop em, start offering trades

Davy Crockett

Dempster had a 189 ERA and you somehow didn't lose any points. Sure, your offense did alright though.

I don't understand how the scoring works in rotisserie play. I had a decent day, nothing great, and I lost points.

Josh's broken records
Josh's broken records

I gained 8 points yesterday I think..two strong to quite strong efforts from my starters and a save from the Beard. Not a killer line for the offense, but respectable. But I thought a had a berry berry good day on Wednesday and lost a 1.5 points..Stay Hard SFBL, and I'm coming for you Merkin and Merten! Mark it down , Mark it down...BROTHA!

If'n you're in need of first class player men, you need not look farther than the most prolific wheeler dealering manager in the league sir. I'm always here, I'll meet ya at 2 in the morning if'n I know you're heading this way.

Hey Stupid Bitch, what do you want for Josh Johnson? Look over who I have and make an offer. Let's dance a bit.

Its all cumulative for the year and if everyone else had a bad day then Im good. On ERA, Im like 3rd to last so a bad ERA day like that doesnt hurt me too bad bc I dont have far to fall. Plus I hit .524 with 3 bombs and 11 RBI so that prolly covered the point I lost in ERA

Couple things for you RW. Not a bad blog today at all. If you’re not such a douche in person then why act like one on the air and here? Might help your ratings who knows. Sucks about Newy whatever the situation was. I actually caught some of his show today. Hopefully he'll find a good home with a stocked fridge. Also maybe it's just me but sweet Greggo's "voice issues" are a little strange. He frankly sounds horrible on the air these days. I'm not say'n he's back on the "sick" again but seems like something’s up behind the curtain.

I have said the same thing about Richie. Must be the genius Bruce at work again.What is funny is how he wrote the story about Russ Martin being fake and doing bits on the air and ridiculed him for it but he is doing the same schtick. I believe the word for that is hypocrite.
