Mark Bowman believes that Tom Glavine will retire within the next couple of weeks: Tom Glavine says that he’ll wait at least two weeks before determining if he’ll ever pitch again. But as he spoke yesterday afternoon, it was hard to ignore the belief that he seemingly already knows his fate . . . . […]
Given the heat seeking missile that Matt Taibbi sends up Brian Cashman’s rear with this article in the May issue of Men’s Journal, I can only assume that Cashman ran over Taibbi’s dog and slept with his wife. Or vice-versa. Or maybe he had a threesome with them and then ran them both over: . […]
