The Red Sox made a splash at the winter meetings with the Gonzalez trade and Crawford signing. The Red Sox are one of the charter members of the American League and won the first World Series. Between 1903 and 1918, the Sox won five championships. Afterward, they traded Babe Ruth to the Yankees. The Red Sox did not win another title until 2004 despite boasting all time greats such as Ted Williams, Roger Clemens, Wade Boggs, and Carl Yastrzemski.
My father was right, Mickey Mantle was an excellent ballplayer. He had a WWE season in 1956 and finished his career with over 500 home runs. Taking a look at his accomplishments and career stats, I think the biggest knock on Mantle is that he played too long. He was pretty much washed up after 1964, and his low batting average in the years that followed would end up pulling his career batting average below .300. The Mick also didn't drive in a lot of runs for a slugger, reaching the 100 RBI milestone in just 4 of his 18 seasons (DiMaggio did it 9 times in 13 seasons and averaged 143 RBI over a 162 game season).
Many of the horses in the contenders list are from well-known farms and have acclaimed trainers. However, unlike many Kentucky-oriented Derby contenders, Orb is part of California's horse racing industry. For this reason, the lesser-known Country Life Farm in Bel Air is excited to see if Orb can land their facility on the map by winning the 2013 Kentucky Derby.
John Maine had a 3.60 ERA in 2006 when he only pitched 16 games and struggled when he reached that same amount of games in 2007. Once Maine improves his conditioning he should be a solid 15 game winner with a ERA between 3 and 3.50.
I'm excited to hear about WWE and Stone Cold really focusing on making this version of Tough Enough a difficult but entertaining reality experience for the potential wrestlers and the fans. I didn't want to see the WWE bring back a version of Tough Enough that was similar to the version that ended 7 years ago.
I won't bore you with all the details but I will tell you two short stories. In the fifth grade the school nurse walked me home from school because she thought I was not being feed at home. I was of course. The second story is a little funny. In the eighth grade I won a trophy for wrestling. That sounds good but I won because I was the only kid in my weight class, 60-69 pounds. Yes in the middle of eighth grade I weighed only 68 pounds, and I was not short.

Chris Jericho has been around a long time, and he has proven to be quite successful in his many endeavors which include TV and stage actor, rock musician and author to name just a few. He is sure to go far on Dancing With The Stars. Will his appearance on the hit reality show end up affecting his image and relationships within the WWE or with his fans? It is tough to tell, but hopefully they will respect him for trying out something new even if it is ballroom dancing.
