LANCE ZIERLEIN WANTS BLOOD, BLAST KC ROYALS FAN BY LM




LANCE ZIERLEIN HAS GEORGE SPRINGER BACK, BLAST "BASIC BITCH" ROYALS FAN
Written By: LM

Monday, Lance Zierlein (Proper Gentlemen Of Sports) was giving the Houston Astros the business for not hitting a KC Royal during their last series.  Basically, Royals injured Houston Astros George Springer during their last series. That same night, Jose Altuve also got hit and Carlos Correa nearly got it.  Lance wanted revenge.

Lance Zierlein Wants Blood

In the midst of blast the Astros, a Royals fan called and defended Royals which caused Lance to lose it because his rant was directed at the Astros.

After Lance finish destroying the Royals' fan he then turned his attention on Houston Fans and their "goody two shoes" ways.

WRAP  IT UP

I agree with everything Lance said.  I was expecting back in the series when it all went down.  If memory serves me correct, that same game, after 3 Astros had been hot or nearly hit, their was a warning issued.

What I found interesting in this rant, every time Houston Rockets Dwight Howard retaliated, Houston and Nation Media and fans called him dumb while at the same time calling him soft.  I never understood being dumb for retaliating or is it, "you are dumb for getting caught"?

JOHN MCCLAIN ON CHANGES

NEWSPAPER ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE

Once I heard John McClain say what's occurring, I asked Former Houston Chronicle Sports Editor Fred Faour a few questions



Lately, in sports it' very hard to appreciate Newspaper  Titles because they are in fact hybrid.  I would like to know a Beat Writer is reporting facts and a columnist is opining.   Today, with most local newspaper guys on air, they are all opining.   Today, so many newspaper guys are on radio spewing  their opinions, its confusing.  Case and point, Brian T Smith, he comes off ass a columnist already. He is always polluting Houston ears with his opinions in print and on air.

JERMAINE EVERY'S WEEKLY SPORTS THOUGHTS (7) By @The_Jermaine





Weekly Thoughts 7/19-7/25/15
By: Jermaine Every

            -Astros are now tied for first place in the American League West Division with the Angels. The team picked up Scott Kazmiron Thursday and he started on Friday at the Royals. The Royals have the best record in the AL right now, but have trouble beating the Astros. Kazmir threw seven scoreless innings and looked good in his first start in an Astros uniform picking up a 4-0 win.

            -Speaking of Kazmir, Astros general Manager Jeff Luhnow pulled a Darryl Morey and got a top tier veteran left-handed pitcher and didn’t give up any significant assets. Catcher Jacob Nottingham and right-handed pitcher Daniel Mengden were sent to Oakland in the deal. While Nottingham was a good prospect at catcher, he’s not irreplaceable. Mengden on the other hand is further down the list of the team’s up and coming young pitching prospects. I believe Luhnowis gaining the respect and credit he deserves from the fan base because he made a good move to get a frontline starter that most of the fans wanted (a media driven thing). If he can continue to pull the strings and develop this roster, keep the minor league pipeline coming, and be responsible for playoff runs after they were in the dumps rebuilding, people will have to universally respect him.

            -I’m still under the thought that Luhnow will at least attempt another move or two before the July 31 trade deadline. Whether it’s for another pitcher (bullpen most likely in y opinion) or a bat, I don’t think he’s done dealing. I mainly draw from his words when interviewed right after the Kazmir deal was made on Thursday. He basically said there are eight more days left before the deadline, so we’ll see what’s out there. Was it a declaration of something definitively coming? Probably not, but I’m under the impression they want to take their shot while within striking distance of making the playoffs, possibly winning the division, or maybe even winning the AL pennant.

            -Rockets trade for Ty Lawson and gave up nothing of significance. Pablo Prigioni, Nick Johnson, Joey Dorsey, Kostas Papanikolau, and a protected first round pick in 2016. Rockets also got back a second rounder in 2017. The icing on the cake of this deal was getting the last year of Lawson’s remaining two years left on his deal to be a team option. Coming of his second DUI arrest within six months, Lawson was seen as a risk. He has been trade bait for some time because of his issues with alcohol, his play wasn’t where the Nuggets wanted or needed, and they drafted Emmanuel Mudiay with the fifth pick this year. Couple all that with George Karl being let go following 2013 season (whom Lawson performed well under), and resurfacing in Sacremento mid way through last season. Morey pulled a “Morey” and got a good point guard for much of nothing. The first round pick most likely will be somewhere near end of the first round if the team’s success is anywhere close to what it was last year. Overall, this was a move that needed to be made because the risk was minimal.

            -Colin Cowherd got himself fired from ESPN for pushing the envelope a bit too much. He was commenting on the origins of baseball players and their level of education compared to other major sports. He messed up when he mentioned “a third of them come from the Dominican Republic.” References to a group of people’s lack of an education while referencing an ethic group or nationality, no matter how loose the reference may be, is not very smart. It’s especially dumb when you’re on a nationally broadcast radio show on the most widely recognized brand in sports media.


            -Speaking of idiotic statements, Hulk Hogan was fired from WWE for comments caught on tape eight years ago. Referring to a guy his daughter was dating as a “f---ing n----r” several times got him run. He’s not only had his contract terminated (he resigned Thursday according to his reps), but WWE has scrubbed all references of him from their website. I’ll be checking the WWE Network to see how they handle his content there as well. From the childhood hero to millions, to another disgraced fallen star, this one came out of nowhere. There were always (some still are visible) signs of racism in wrestling. Things have progressively gotten better over the years, but still not as it should be in some opinions. This was a Donald Sterling-type deal where audio surfaces you didn’t think existed some time after it was said. No matter what, if you’re a public figure, no matter how big or small, you have to be aware that things can, and most often will, come back to haunt you when you’re a racist piece of shit!
