TALKING POINTS


TALKING POINTS 1) Dan Renaud, East Greenbush: While I agree that Tim Lincecum had another outstanding year for the Giants, and there are many sound arguments why he deserved the NL CY Young award, I find it appalling that Chris Carpenter was left off two of the writers' ballots for the award. There is no way that Carpenter was not in the top three of NL pitchers this year, finishing ahead of Lincecum in both ERA and WHIP. And while some point to Lincecum suffering while pitching with a weak offense to back him up, it is interesting to note that his run support in starts was 4.57 per game. Chris Carpenter's was 4.59.

2) Francis Flynn, Colonie: There's an old adage: "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then." So seems the case of Jim Dolan, chairman of Madison Square Garden and steward of the New York Knicks . After a decade of mismanaging the Knicks (recall the Isiah Thomas and Larry Brown tenures) it seems Dolan and the Knicks are not about to sign the gunning (on and off the court) Allen "The Answer" Iverson. The guard could increase attendance early on, but in the long run his salary and style of play would be detrimental to the team.

3) Rodger Wyland's quick take: Saturday's loss to Connecticut spelled the end of Charlie Weis at Notre Dame. If a search for a new coach is not under way, it should begin immediately. Weis lost to Navy twice in the past three seasons, and has not one signature win in his five-plus seasons at Notre Dame. It's an understatement to say it's time for a change. NewsChannel 13's Rodger Wyland can be heard weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon on WOFX 980 AM.
