GM Tim Purpura and Manager Phil Garner were canned today; bench coach Cecil Cooper is interim manager.

Really? In late August? It wouldn't kill you to wait another month and not embarrass your guys a year after they reach the fall classic for the first time in your franchise's history? Come on.

Spending that last month of the season in Baseball Limbo is exactly how Craig Biggio envisioned the end of his baseball career, I'm sure. He deserves a lot better than this. How is it that the two teams that were in the World Series just two years ago are now completely in the toilet?

And speaking of the '05 World Series, if Garner's been shown the door, does that mean Ozzie's not far behind?

Buy Kanye West's "Graduation" (The W at Amazon) and YOU can help send 50 Cent into retirement (and put some money into The W while you're at it)!

Wow, they upgraded their ex-Brewers. :-)

And sadly, the Crew has slipped to 3rd, allowing the f'n Cards back in the race. As Brewers' post-All-Star-break slides go (and there's one almost every year), this one's EPIC.

Not to mention that they're choking away in an f'n PENNANT RACE...

If Jeter actually finds a better contract, I'm sure they'll match it. But why pay Jeter well above market value? And you can't say because of past services rendered, since he was already *very* well paid during those years.
