Tuesday Quick Hitters

I have to believe the Bengals are kicking the tires on JaMarcus Russell. It fits in with the bargain shopping Bengals management is so fond of, and I don't blame them for it. It's worth at least a look. The problem with the Bengals, they can't keep themselves from closing the deal because it looks like a bargain. Hey, JaMarcus Russell, a $100 million player for the league minimum. Sounds great, but is it great? Not if the player isn't into making himself a true pro.

Pacman said the right things, now he needs to do the right things. At least he acknowledged that it will take some time for him to gain everyone's trust. Truer words were never spoken.

The Cyclones are two wins away from the Kelly Cup finals, but one loss and it's over. But the 'Clones have really turned this series around after dropping the first three games. Now the pressure is on Reading, even though the Royals lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is tonight on the Cyclones home ice, U.S. Bank Arena. 7:30 p.m.

I don't want to jinx Johnny Cueto, but the starting pitching is on a roll. Outside of Homer Bailey's bad outing Friday night, the starting pitching has been adequate for over a week. Johnny has been just "ok" lately, so it's time for him to pick it up.
