Sports Thoughts……

by Mike Organ

The Longhorn Network that caused the breakup of the Big XII is a product that not many cable companies want to carry. Is it the cost of the service or the product that is holding up sales?

Texas, despite the number of five-star recruits, is apparently going to be happy with an eight win season. After some bad seasons, just a little above mediocrity is acceptable.

Baylor is winning the Big XII championship in successes among the high profile sports (football, men and women’s basketball, baseball). The Bears are doing this with a coaching staff that is paid less than many others in the conference. I think Baylor is to be congratulated on their 2011-2012 successes.

The Texas Rangers baseball team is hitting its stride literally and figuratively. They have won seven straight games and moving away from the rest of the American League West.

The Los Angeles Angels seem to have thrown $250 million away on Albert Pujols. He is not hitting for power, average, or RBI’s. Pujols is learning the difference in the quality of pitching in the American League vs. the National League.

The Little League playoffs started Monday night. We will try to keep you informed on their progress on the Leader Facebook page.
