The TMZ story doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Could the police really get a search warrant for someone's home based on the mere discovery of a compartment in their car? Are hidden compartments in cars illegal?

Based on what little I know, this smells like someone ratted him out.
Fire Alex Cora. (On hold pending further review)

There is not enough information to really know. It's kind of tough to believe that they managed a) managed to convince a judge that they just happened to find an empty compartment in his car and they were suspicious enough to want to search his home and a judge issued a warrant and then b) what do you know, but the guy has 20 kilos of assorted coke and heroin in his house. Seems really, really unlikely.

Someone ratted him out or they stumbled upon him while checking out someone else or something. But, it seems incredibly unlikely this happened due to a routine traffic stop.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

And in today's news, all the Mets are in the best shape of their career.
If at first you don't succeed, give up. There is no hope for you.

The Mets made some good moves. IF the pitching can stay reasonably healthy, they may be good this year. A healthy Mets squad could contend for a playoff spot.

It's the first day or spring training when hope abounds! LET'S GO METS!

I'm not sure hope abounds for us Pirate fans, they may be the worst team in the league this year.

You may want to take a few minutes to check out the moves the Marlins made this off season. They are fielding a AAA team, and not even a top end AAA team.

I am on a run! I am pretty sure the Phillies make it to the World Series. I could also see the Sixers (Embiid and Simmons) winning the NBA title and the Flyers winning Lorde Stanley's Cup. A full sweep for the city of Brotherly Love!!!

Speaking of the Marlins, this could be the single greatest story of the offseason: David Samson Flipped When Julio The Octopus Accidentally Won The Marlins' Sea Creature Race

This is destined to be dad's all time favorite baseball story given his love of mascots.

You should be hoping they only win 35 games so they can get the #1 draft pick. Anything more than 35 games, and they are likely going to lose that pick to the Marlins. The Marlins are going to be bad. I mean like '62 Mets bad.
