MoDews Thursday Rant

Would like to start off by saying, for those of you who don't know, I have finally made the move down into DC. Now, I left Vermont thinking that I would be warmer but so far it has been just as cold as it was in Vermont.

Anyways on to sports news.. I have read from an unreliable source that Orioles all-star second baseman Brian Roberts has been in discussion between the O's and the Cleveland Indians. Not sure about the Indians prospects but I have a feeling that if this rumor is true then it is mostly being done to scare the Cubs into giving more than they should for Roberts. I would be all for a Pie for Roberts straight up deal but I realize this isn't a perfect world..

And in case anyone didn't notice the Washington Capitals are in a 1st place race in the South East conference and are looking to make a playoff spot which is something they haven't done in five years. Not to mention they have one of the best players in the NHL who is making a run for the Hart Trophy, league MVP for non-hockey fans. Alexander Ovechkin, who is under contract now for the next 13 years, in my opinion is the most explosive and fun to watch player in the NHL and by the end of his career will easily be the best Washington Capital ever.

Don't really have any news on the Redskins other than the occasional rumor about trading for Chad Johnson. I understand that Snyder has a knack for signing and trading for top NFL players and having them come to the low points of there career's when they arrive.. But I think Chad Johnson is one of the few guys they Redskins should really try to go after as long as they don't give up half there team for him. The Skins have lacked a tall WR for a long time and Johnson could help Campbell develop even more not to mention would keep Santana Moss from being double covered all the time.

One last thing I would like to say is that it's a little over 24 hours before taco night which I have not been to in about 5-6 years. And not sure if Steve will get a more detailed update but the UVM Catamounts won big last night over Hartford 94-82. Marqus Blakely had 30 points and 20 rebounds in arguably one of the best games of his career.

I have serious doubts that Felix Pie is going to be an impact player of any capacity in Baltimore. I think Brian Roberts is to special of a player to trade. He did say he was open for a trade, so what do I know?

Alexander Ovechkin met his smoking hot girlfriend on an online hockey blog. For that, he gets double props from me. This is good news for Dews.

Taco Night, hell yeh. Glad to have you in the District Modews. Tomorrow we will finally match faces with blog identities.

yup, chicks dig the blogs man...

I'm totally onboard with the Roberts for Pie deal though as that could give us the best multi-tooled outfield in baseball in about 2-3 years.

Hell, Markakis/Jones/Pie in the RF/CF/LF (or maybe Pie in center and Jones in left?) could quite possibly be one of the best defensive outfields ever too.

May help hide our pitching deficits :)
