The Nutball Gazette-World Series Game 7 Pick and Comment

If I am Nolan Ryan I would fire Ron Washington tonight, He had a chance in the 5th inning to put the game away with the bases loaded and 2 out and left in the Pitcher Colby Lewis to hit.
This is the freaking World series and you have a chance to win it today and Ron Washington plays the game like it is April 19th!

Are You kidding me?

Also the defense by both teams has to be the worst both team efforts ever, The only time I saw worst defense was the 2006 Detroit Tigers that imploded in that series.

OK saying that, The Rangers were 2 times 1 strike away from winning it Thursday night.
They will not get a chance to even think about winning a World Series in Game 7.
The Cardinals will put this game away in the Bottom of the 1st, look for Albert Pujols to hit a 3 run Home Run in the 1st in a 6 run 1st leading the Cardinals to their 11th World series Championship

Final Score ST LOUIS CARDINALS-16---Texas Rangers-3

The Nutball Gazette-Week 8 Picks

Another week has gone by and the year remains to be very bizarre

Last Week 9-4

Season 73--29

Last year 54-50

Here we go, are you ready

Miami Guppies-10 @ NY GIANTS- 27 (Guppies seem to have quit, the coaching staff has quit, This team may be the worst pro team in any sport in sports history, Worst than the '1962 Mets', '1972 76rs' 1975 Washington Capitals', 1976 Bucs', '2008 Lions' and '2011 Boston Red Sox'

DETROIT LIONS-20 @ Denver Broncos-7 (Tim Tebow has never met Ndamakong Suh, if Tebow survives the 1st 3 Qtrs he will drive them to a brilliant looking late 4th Qtr TD to keep his fans hopes up).

Jacksonville Jaguars-10 @ HOUSTON TEXANS-31 (Texans have owned Jags and will continue this at home)

Washington Redskins-10 @ BUFFALO BILLS-23 (Bills gets its mojo back against the redskins who is now showing us that they are going nowhere and that they have the most overrated coach in NFL History)

Minnesota Vikings 17-@ CAROLINA PANTHERS-34 (Battle of rookie QBs Ponder showed promise but is still raw. meanwhile Cam Newton seems to be getting better and better, look for a huge game from him)

New England Patriots-23 @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS-28 (Just time for the Patriots to lose a game)

Arizona Cardinals-0 @ BALTIMORE RAVENS-56 (Look for Flacco to throw for 5 TDs [but only throw for 34 yards] Look for the Defense of the ravens to take out its frustration from Monday night on the Cards and force at least 8 Turnovers 3 will be returned for TDs and the other 5 will give the Ravens offense a 1st and goal inside the 5 yard line)

Cleveland Browns-17 @ SAN FRANSISCO-49rs- 31 (49rs continue its march to not only a playoff berth, but a divison tittle and a bye in the 1st round, possibly the best record in the NFL with is very weak schedule)

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS-27 @ St Louis Rams-10 (Rams are just too banged up to compete this year)

CINCINNATI BENGALS-27 @ Seattle Seaturkeys-16 (Well I am ignoring this warning and buying into QB Andy Dalton) (I got this message this week from Bengal fan "A Frank Angle" Warning to The Expert. Bengals are 2-5-1 under Lewis coming off a bye ... and have lost 4 in a row to the Seahawks. Pressure is on ... will The Expert follow the trend or buck it?,

Indianapolis Mares-13 @ TENNESSEE TITANS-24 (Oh just how bad are the Mares)

DALLAS COWBOYS-34 @ Philidelphia Sparrows-16 (Look for a very long day for Philly)


SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 20 @ Kansas City Chiefs 16 (Got to believe that the Chargers are

better than what they shows in the 2nd half vs the Jets

The Nutball Gazette--World Series Predictions 2011

Well since "The Expert" didn't come close in his Playoff Picks he will give it another try

"The Expert" keeps going back and forth on this, He has said many times that Tony Larussa cost his team many games with his in game managing. But the Rangers continue to win with so many confusing moves by Ron Washington.

Looking at the match ups The Starting pitching for both teams have been awful but the Cards have Cris Carpenter and he should dominate at least one game. The Rangers have a edge in the bullpen.
The Rangers have more boppers (Is that a word?) in the lineup and both teams can hit the heck out of the ball. But the Cards have Albert Pujlos, The Rangers big bat Josh Hamilton is hurting a bit.

For every reason I can pick one team I can pick the other.
So "The Expert" is going to pick in the 2011 World Series is.....................................................

Cards in 6

The Nutball Gazette-Week 6 Picks

The Expert Had his Internet, and Cable knocked out last weekend, The Expert could not post my picks, The Expert did get them into the pool he was in, He went 8 wins and 5 losses

Last Week (8-5) The Expert missed on Tenn/Pitt, KC/Indy, Sea/Giants, Hust/Oak, and Chicago/Det (What was The Expert thinking in that one, The Expert did pick San Fran over Tampa

Season Record. 53-24
Last Year The Expert was 40-37

OK The Old Wiseass Expert is back

Philadelphia Turkeys 23 @ Washington Redskins 34, (Season is unraveling, Michael Vick is proving to be overrated)

San Francisco 26 @ Detroit Lions 20 (The Expert is buying into Jim Harbaugh and thinking the Lions cannot keep on falling behind)

Carolina Panthers 24 @ Atlanta Falcons 38 (Falcons should recover and overcome a pretty tough Panthers )

St Louis Ewes 16 @ Green Bay Packers 41 (The Ewes er I mean the Rams are contenders for the #1 pick)

Jacksonville Kitty Litter 10 @ Pittsburgh Steelers 38 (Will Jack Del Rio survive the season. Will there even be 10,000 fans at games in Jacksonville)

Indianapolis Ponies 13 @ Cincinnati Bengals 27 (Indy might have a QB situation like Green bay had several years ago)

Buffalo Bills 22 @ New York Midgets 13 (The Jints showed what we expected during training camp. Simply awful)

Houston Texans 18 @ Baltimore Ravens 34 (Texans are just overmatched)

Cleveland Brunettes 13 @ Oakland Raiders 31 (The Expert was one year ahead on the Raiders)

Dallas Cowbabies 16 @ New England Patriots 43 (The end of the Romo(n) empire in Dallas is coming soon)

New Orleans Saints 23 @ Tampa Bay Bucs 28 (Tampa rebounds and Saints do not play well on the road)

Sunday Night

Minnesota Vikings 13 @ Chicago Bears 23 (Look for ugly football)

Monday Night

Oh Joy

Miami Guppies 13 @ New York Paper Airplanes 18 (Kind of like the old days when before Brett Favre was a Packer and Tampa BAY Yucs played The Green BAY Packers, the game was known as the Bay of Pigs bowl)

Nutty Thoughts of a Nutball

My thoughts is that there is no longer locks to win Championships,
I can see Boston, Yankees and anyone else going 5 to 50 years without winning it all,
Yes the big teams will make the playoffs most years
But I don't think players are anxious to play in the big cities,

Looks like the window for the Jets has been shut down. SOJ are back (Same Old Jets)
The NFL also proves that no one is a lock,
Green Bay looks unbeatable now But who knows down the road.
The NFL has changed drastically since the settlement and the change of rules for workouts and lack of contact during practice,

Hockey is back and we can expect teams that were among the worst last year to be solid this year and
teams that advanced far last season to go out early or not make the playoffs this year

The NBA??? YAWN, Does anyone even care about the NBA?

The Nutball Gazette-Week 4 Picks

We are approaching the 1/4 way point of the NFL Season. Still a very bizarre season going on.
The things we can conclude is
Kansas City is awful, Detroit seems to be for real, and by the way, The Packers are good.

Last Week--11-5
