  • An uneasy pick for Red Sox to...

    Yes, I’m picking the Boston Red Sox to win the World Series this year. But the fact that nearly every national media sports outlet is also picking them—at least to get to the World Series—makes it an uneasy pick for me.
    Why should I be unhappy that the national media agree with me for once? Because they usually don’t look at the whole picture and therefore are usually wrong. Certainly none of them picked the San Francisco Giants to be anywhere close to world champions last year.

    TELL CITY—With 13 or 14 girls on the roster, Tell City’s girls track team lacks depth.
    But the Marksmen have enough quality that Coach Katie Chinn thinks they will score well in big meets.
    “Actually I think we can put somebody decent in every event,” she said.
    The Marksmen have six talented freshmen. Two of them, Tori Payne and Logan Flannagan, should make the high jump one of the team’s strongest events, said Chinn.

    There were several upsets in the first round of the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tourney, but No. 14 seed Indiana State was unable to pull off one against No. 3 Syracuse.
    Still Perry Central graduate Aaron Carter and the other Sycamores put up a strong battle against the favored Orangemen most of the game.
    The Sycamores pulled within four points of the taller Orangemen, 42-38, with 15 minutes left.

    CANNELTON—With little experienced pitching, Cannelton’s baseball team seems headed for a rebuilding season.
    “We’re going to be a young team and take some lumps, but hopefully we can build something for the next couple of years,” Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett said Tuesday.
    There are only 12 boys on the roster, and Garrett said one or two may be academically ineligible for the next nine weeks when report cards come out Thursday.
