We can't fight it any longer. We're finally ready to admit that baseball needs the Yankees to stay strong. So, free of charge, Page 2 offers up an offseason plan that will bring Curt Schilling, Gary Sheffield, Jim Edmonds and Miguel Tejada to New York. Why? Just think how much fun it will be when that team loses.

Had enough of Kobe-mania? ESPN Radio's Mike Greenberg has. In fact, Greenie says it's time for No. 8 to take a little vacation from the public eye. That means no more press conferences, no more spats with Shaq and no more Lakers' games. Go away. Disappear. Vamoose. And don't call us; we'll call you.

10 Burning Questions The List
It isn't easy being Snoop Dogg, especially when he's being shot at on an L.A. freeway. As his appearance on "Playmakers" approaches, Page 2 catches up with Snoop for 10 Burning Questions.
Page 2's Tim Keown says fans need to hear what Charles Woodson has to say about Bill Callahan. After all, the ticket-buying public has a right to know what's going on behind the Raiders' scenes.

THE DAILY QUICKIE
The Daily Quickie says "Yeah, Baby!" when a study suggests that stars like Jennifer Aniston are responsible for the sex education of our youth. Plus, time to rock the vote about NFL overtime.


Even if Shaq and Kobe are trying to get along this week, their recent public spat won't soon be forgotten. On the Entertainment Scale, it's right up there. But does the Lakers' feud measure up to the bad blood on our list of the most memorable teammate grudges of all time?

10]  Marcus Williams vs. Bill Romanowski
First came the fight during a Raiders' preseason practice, when Romanowski broke Williams' eye socket. Then came the lawsuit, filed by Williams in Alameda County Court. There's more to come in this little dispute.
9]  Michael Westbrook vs. Stephen Davis
Another practice session, another fight. This time, apparently, the fisticuffs had been a long time brewing. Once they began, local TV cameras picked up the brawl so the world could see Westbrook pounding his Redskins' teammate.
8]  Jason Kidd vs. Jim Jackson
Maybe it was because Kidd accused Jackson of selfishness on the court for the Mavericks. Maybe it was because singer Toni Braxton came between them. Either way, Dallas ended up trading both of them in a matter of months.
