Three key topics today

I’m gearing up for my vacation next week (actually, starting this weekend), and I’ve today made a last-minute decision to take my two oldest boys up to New York to see my Dodgers play the Mets, but I have a few items I want to cover before I do.

Ronnie Brown

I see people are starting to get really excited about him this summer, and I’m not really seeing it. As regular readers know, I may be the president of the Ronnie Brown Fan Club, starting from Day One, so I’m not down on Ronnie Brown. I just don’t see why people are suddenly becoming enamored with him. Yes, I know he’s another year removed from his knee injury, and that is good. Brown told me on Sirius in November that he was 100% and had no restrictions, but he said last month that he feels more explosive this year.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
