The players who "own" Rashard

During the discussion of Brandon Bass, a point came up about whether Rashard could guard power forwards. I got curious, and there was a list provided by a commenter of forwards that he felt Rashard...

Check out pitcher #44 and catcher #13. Both are Sanz. Both are Luis Sanz. Both are Luis A Sanz. Turns out, they're brothers. That lineup must be fun to fill out.

An interview with Tom Gamboa, the first base coach for Kansas City who was jumped in Chicago, about the recent incidents at CBP. One quote I found interesting, given the reputation Philly has among other teams' fans: "I would hate to see Philly get a bad rap because of a couple of stupid people doing a bad act, because it doesn’t reflect to me, the city or the sports fans that they have. And I hope that gets across as this story goes around."

A brief analysis of the top six teams in the NBA at the midpoint of the season. Posted both because there's some interesting thoughts in there, and because Roger and I went to high school together (disclaimer: I had no clue it was him until I linked over from TrueHoop).
