Your Daily Fix 12.6.06 [J. Mark English]

  • New York Mets trade young pitcher Brian Bannister to the Royals for young "fireballer" Ambiorix Burgos. (Good luck pronouncing his first name...)
  • Boston Red Sox sign J.D. Drew for 5 years, worth over $70 million. (Put that in perspective...he's only making a few million less per year then Carlos Beltran!)
  • Barry Bonds is at the Winter Meetings hoping that baseball owners are doing some early Christmas shopping...
  • NBA commish David Stern says that the intro to the new basketball was mishandled. (Nice pun eh?)
  • Ben Johnson, the olympic runner who tested positive for steroids at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, claims that Carl Lewis set him up.
  • Could Bernie Kosar be the next coach at the University of Miami? Don't laugh year we could be having Weekends with Bernie down at the Orange Bowl.
  • Andy Katz says the that Jimmy V Classic offers fans a glimpse of March Madness in the middle of December.
