AFTER THE PERFORMANCE OF TSUYOSHI NISHIOKA AGAINST CLEVELAND IT IS OBVIOUS MANAGEMENT MADE TWO VERY BIG MISTAKES:

1) Signing him to an expensive contract and 2) calling him up again. He is not a major league-quality player. The Twins organization needs to cut its losses, pay off his contract and move on.

Greatest athlete ever?

Jim Souhan's "greatest athlete" column has to be taken with a grain of salt. It makes for a great story as Souhan covers the Olympics, but it defines "greatest athlete" by saying Usain Bolt, a man who runs faster than anyone ever did over the course of two Olympics, must be the greatest athlete. I think Souhan should have simply declared Bolt is the greatest track athlete ever. He surely is that. But each sport is unique onto itself and each should be judged within its own parameters.
