Veteran goaltender Martin Brodeur has a respectable 5-3 record through eight games with the New Jersey Devils. His 2.59 goals against average and .907 save percentage are good, but hardly the kind of numbers Team Canada wants to see from it’s starting goaltender Brodeur is in tough. To date, through six games, he has a 4-2 record, with a 2.99 goals against average and a .899 save percentage, far off the numbers he put up in the 2008-09 season and not the type of numbers that will endure him to Team Canada. Seen as a long-shot to many, the Carolina Hurricanes' Cam Ward is off to a tough start. That said, his 2-4 record through six games is hardly indicative of the way he has played.
Ward’s 2.47 goals against average and .922 save percentage are very good, especially when you consider how poorly the Hurricanes have played in front of him, by all indications, Ward is still in the mix. We will not get a true read of how Team Canada’s roster will shape up until about the 30 game mark. That said, the warning signs are there for some players that were counting on their resumes to speak for them. A players history may get you an extended look, but if a player wants a chance to “make history” with Team Canada at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, they will have to perform in the “now” and, judging by the early play of some of the candidates, when it comes to making the team, their dreams may in fact, be history... Until next time, Peace!. While other teams may get the wins and trophies The Dodgers has something no other club can claim. They integrated baseball by the hand of Branch Ricky, many years ago today.
So while other clubs are celebrating baseball for on the field accomplishments. Black players as well as other "minorities" are now included.Back then Black Players while just as capable, agile, power hitting ballers. They had to, only, play in the Negro league, which is a prestigious thing , but were denied the World stage of facing the best of the best They were limited to there homogenic group. And didn't share in the great acclaim and honor as those in the Major leagues,from all walks of life.So even though they the dodgers aren't playing in the 2009 World Series In spirit they are. If it Had not been for the Dodgers there would be no Ryan Howard leading the Phillies to the Show, or a Jimmy Rollins. So When these great players, of color and everyone in general, look at all their accomplishments:they must "Remember the Dodgers." . ) Saturday Oct.
