Tiger Looks Like Tiger Again - Wall Street Journal (blog)

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Kansas and fourth-seeded Louisville, which will replay its annual rivalry game with UK for far higher stakes on Saturday—are hardly upstarts. There is no Virginia Commonwealth or George Mason or Butler, here. This year’s Final Four, it seems, is for big boys only. “The vibe is already different,” Sports Illustrated’s Luke Winn writes. “There is the sense that the tournament has been building up to this quartet, rather than winding down. That after so many buzzer-beaters gone wrong, so many games bogged down by painful officiating, we are due for a few epics.” At the very least, we’ll get a pair of rematches in the short term—Kansas and Ohio State played earlier this year while the Buckeyes were without star forward Jared Sullinger, and the Jayhawks rolled. That’s something that tends to happen for the Buckeyes, who depend a great deal on their frontcourt centerpiece. Kentucky and Louisville play each other every year, but this is the first time the in-state rivals have met in the Final Four. Louisville hung with the ‘Cats earlier this season before falling to them like almost everyone else did. Things don’t get any easier now. This remains a super-motivated Wildcats team led by coach of great talent and a certain complicated charm and freshman forward Anthony Davis, the best player in college basketball. All that talent is not a guarantee of anything, of course. Those don’t exist at this time in the college hoops season. * * * The obituaries for Bert Sugar, who died over the weekend at the age of 74, will mostly credit him as a boxing writer and historian. And while Sugar—who was, for decades, instantly recognizable even to non-boxing fans for his broad-brimmed hats and well-chewed, never-lit cigar—did know and talk and write a great deal about the sport, he was also far more than a boxing writer. Sugar’s name graced over 100 books, most of which dealt with the sweet science, and he edited both Boxing Illustrated and the Ring. But he was first and foremost a personality, a sportswriter who was mostly a raconteur and wholly a character and, in most every way, a man from a more interesting age who nevertheless made himself at home in our more staid, brand-sensitive one. “When famous people men die we love to say, ‘There will never be another one like him,’ but in Bert Sugar’s case, I’m pretty sure it’s true. Because if Bert Sugar hadn’t invented himself, it would have been impossible for anyone else to invent him,” ESPN’s Wallace Matthews writes. “He may well have been the last of a breed, that typically New York wiseguy who possessed one priceless and seemingly vanishing skill: The ab...

Soria, Bullpen Depth, and Trade Value - FanGraphs (blog)

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
Christian Colon cancels out Moore’s general success in the draft), Moore has done a good good job of signing young talent like Billy Butler, Salvador Perez, Alcides Escobar to team-friendly deals. Soria was actually the first, signing a three-year deal back in 2008 for less than $9 million guaranteed for 2009 to 2011, with club options through 2014. This season is the first club option year at $6 million, with 2013`s option being for $8 million and 2014 for $8.75 million. When signed, Soria was bursting onto the scened as an elite reliever, and while reliever value is much-debated, the cheap guaranteed portion and the flexibility of the club options (along with the always-tantilizing possibility that he could start without his arm flying off) meant that the deal provided good surplus value at a time when the Royals desperately needed it. While the previous off-season`s Jesus Montero-for-Soria rumor was obviously and hilariously… how can I say this politely… “dubious,” the contract did give Soria substantial trade value. If the Royals can produce this much bullpen depth behind Soria so as to weather his loss, one has to wonder if he should not have been traded earlier, at least as early at 2010. Back then, he was guaranteed less than $3 million a season on average, with the club options still remaining. The Royals did not have the bullpen depth the have now, but they were far enough from contention that it did not matter. There is still flexibility with Soria because he is in the realm of club options now, but even so, $8 or $9 million for a closer is not nearly as great of a deal (unless you think the Papelbon deal is or should be standard). Despite previous struggles, Dayton Moore and his staff have the Royals in position potentially to be a real force in the coming years, with few payroll commitments and a pipeline of young talent. Even if Soria was not hurt at the moment, he trade value is not close to what it was a year or two ago. Even without hindsight, the Royals current bullpen depth shows that pens can be built, and while there was no certainty back in 2010 that it would look this good, the team may have missed a real opportunity to bring back a real haul for Soria that would now be on its way to helping them even more than Soria as they look to post-2012 contention.

Love of jazz was Linn Hudson's bottom line

Thu, Jan 26, 2012
Mid-South. Born in Indianapolis, Hudson grew up on a farm in Paris Crossing, Ind. He worked in an ordnance factory during World War II while earning a bachelor's degree from Butler University. He came to Memphis in 1955 when his employer, National Mills, one of the nation's largest hosiery manufacturers, moved its operations to the South. By 1970 he rose to become the CFO of what was then called Pennaco. Hudson joined Century Management in 1972, and during his tenure the firm's franchises doubled. He retired in 1995, and enjoyed University of Memphis basketball, collecting art and antiques and traveling with his wife, Edna. "They spent time in New Orleans where they owned a second residence in the French Quarter," said John Hudson. But it was the elder Hudson's love of music that friends and family recall. "His favorite performer was the late jazz pianist James Williams," said John Hudson. "James grew up in Memphis, and was a recording artist and producer in New York, where he also was the Thad Jones Professor of Jazz at William Patterson University. "My dad never missed James' annual homecoming concert at Eastern Star ... (The Commercial Appeal)

Local residents remember the day Martin Luther King came to town - Greenville News

Sun, Jan 22, 2012
For those reasons and more, Martin Luther King Jr.’s presence in Greenville that day meant something. “It’s just amazing that he did get to Greenville,” said Ruth Ann Butler, director of the Greenville Cultural Exchange Center, a local black history museum. “In fact, there are not too many places he did get, but the places he went there was a difference and people knew that he was there.” Claussen’s Bakery Claussen's Bakery King’s visit to Greenville was not highly publicized, and even today it’s difficult to find hard-and-fast details on the who, what, why and how. But there’s no doubt about the impact he had here. The man, who by then was a Noble Peace Prize winner known around the world, touched lives wherever he spoke. (Page 2 of 4) “All the other great preachers around here, I loved what they were doing and I would have followed them any place,” said the Rev. J.M. Flemming, who was 19 at the time and saw King speak that day. “But when he said it, it more than congealed everything they had said and what they stood for. I mean, it’s real now.” Flemming said he went on to become more actively involved in the civil rights movement after King’s visit. The reason King stopped in Greenville that day is now recounted from memory banks more than historical record. A story in TheGreenvilleNews-Piedmont from May 1, 1967, said King’s visit was organized by the newly formed Greenville Christian Leadership Conference, an offshoot of King’s national Southern Christian Leadership Conference and created by a number of local black religious leaders. Many who remember the visit also cite a workers strike at Claussen’s Bakery a...
