What You Need to Know, in Fewer Than 300 Words

Appearances aside, JC didn't really bring much offensive change, although Randy Thomas says he didn't look like "a first-year starter guy." Gibbs (who has a tough time finding the positives) says JC reminds him of Doug Williams (no comment). He also says Rocky McIntosh (nine tackles) has already had a big impact. Phillip Daniels and teammates say the D is "not good," Carlos Rogers attempts to defend himself (but fails), and Tony Romo is reportedly dating Jessica Simpson.

On Soriano, Thom Loverro doesn't think Soriano will bring a World Series to the Cubs, Boz says the Nats would have been crazy to meet his asking price, Rick Snider says Mister Snyder should take notes on Stan Kasten's approach, Jim Hendry says Soriano is "like a greyhound" and could be productive for years, and Craig Heist calls Soriano "a big turkey." Soriano, meantime, says the Nats never called so he had to move on, while Kory Casto is the frontrunner to be his replacement.

Gil has been stinky on the road, the Mavs (tonight's opponent) have won six straight but Dirk says they've been "lucky," and a Caps blogger makes fun of us for covering the Wizards too much and suggests that Chris "I'll play without teeth" Clark is tougher than Jarvis "day-to-day" Hayes.

After being named ESPN's team of the week, Bog fave Boom Osby and Maryland smash Winthrop, whose coach says it was "like the varsity and jayvees." Mason's John Vaughan says he wants to win a national championship, VMI rips up its record book with 300 points in two games, and if UVA football wins Saturday, the Cavs won't have to go to Boise.

I'd call what VMI is running the Loyola Marymount offense, but I'm guessing the personnel makes it more like Grinnell East.

Dan, since Tarik dropped the ball on the Chris Clark story, you've got to delve into the big question: Where are Clark's teeth, now?

Thank you for actually mentioning VMI. Although I'll be the first to mention the fact that most athletic teams at VMI have left something to be desired in recent years, it's actually nice to see VMI in the Post for something other than controversy or simple box scores.

Loverro's article/column is just stupid. Soriano has a full no-trade in his deal with the Cubs, so he's not going to come back to the Nats until his contract runs. He should have known that.
