The Cubs have many needs, and a $4 million set-up guy isn’t one of them, Brian Hanley says.
Ozzie Guillen has said he can manage anybody. We’ll soon find out, says The Score’s Brian Hanley.
Actions may speak louder than words, yet without Bears chairman George McCaskey’s mantra that “winning world championships” is the team’s goal, Jerry Angelo would still be general manager.
Gene Smith, the clueless Ohio State athletic director, shouldn’t be the only one “disappointed with the NCAA’s decision” Tuesday. Smith’s disappointed? How about the players who are still bound to the now non-Bowl-eligible Buckeyes next year?
