more local musings and mvp talk

• Today marked the first time in 45 years that the SF Giants had back to back home games rained out... Maybe God is trying to give Bonds a hint?

• The Mavs can beat the Spurs on the road, but not Golden State (playing on back to back nights)?

• The Rangers won for the first time in their last 9 tries against the Angels and stopped a 9 game losing streak in Anaheim.

• The Rangers have put Ian Kinsler, their best hitter thus far this season, on the 15 day DL with a dislocated thumb that happened while trying to steal second base on Tuesday. He was thrown out on the play. Kinsler was batting .476.

• Is Mike Modano a serious contender for the NHL MVP award?

• Who's the NBA MVP this year? My rankings:

Kobe Bryant - he simply does it all and if you have one shot to win a game, who else would you want taking it? Carried Lakers on his back and into the playoffs. Can you say 81?
Chauncey Billups - the best player on the best team
Dirk Nowitzki - consistent 25-10 guy but cant carry the team when needed
Steve Nash - heart and soul of the Suns, but not on Kobe's level
Lebron James - good scorer but not quite at mvp level
