Now that 83-year-old Brent Musburger has been put out to pasture, the Raiders’ radio play-by-play job is open. I think they should hire me as part of a youth movement in the booth.
Mus reacted to his dismissal gracefully, as did Phillies manager Joe Girardi, who got canned after three seasons with the club.
Dusty Baker’s job prospects are solid for the moment. The ‘Stros are 34-18 after pushing their winning streak to five with a 10-3 rout of the Royals in K.C.
Everything was perfect for Yankees starter Gerrit Cole Friday night until the Tigers’ Jonathan Schoop buggered it up with a base hit with two out in the seventh. That came just one night after the Yanks’ Jameson Taillon lost his perfect game bid in the eighth. AllMOST!
Salute to future HOFer Alex Mack, who retired Friday after 13 stellar NFL seasons. That will leave a hole at center in the 49ers offensive line, and a hole in the hearts of NFL fans everywhere.
I’ve become a fan of Arkansas football coach Sam Pittman, whose contract has been extended through 2026. The Hogs are once again a handful. Just ask Texas, Texas A&M, LSU and Penn State, all of whom got rolled by the Razorbacks in 2021. They’ll be even better this season.
Mack Brown has lured his buddy Gene Chizik back into coaching after a five-year hiatus. Chiz is now North Carolina’s defensive coordinator, a role he once held under Brown at Texas. Mack needs to win some games this year to keep the Wolves off his Heels.

No Williams Sisters at Wimbledon later this month? What’s that all about, Alfie?
