Web brings us too close to Beasley, others 2009-08-25
The news that Michael Beasley has checked into a Houston clinic for depression and other issues shouldn't come as much of a shock. More surprising, and perhaps more troubling for what it portends, is the notion of a ballplayer announcing his innermost thoughts — in this case, suicidal — on Twitter.

"Feelin like it's not worth livin!!!!!!! I'm done ...

"I feel like the whole world is against me I can't win for losin ... "

In other words, at Citi Field prices, the Wilpons are doing to their fans what Bernie Madoff did to them.

Or what that judge from Texas did to Paulie Malignaggi in Houston on Saturday night.

Malignaggi, who was never hurt by Juan Diaz and controlled the fight from beginning to end, had said he was being "set up" for a hometown decision.

And given Gale Van Hoy's scorecard — which had Diaz winning 118-110 — it's just nice to see a fighter make good on a prediction.

Such a bad decision I got a call from the Mets' press box informing me that no less a man than Gary Sheffield was outraged.

Then again, as Newsday's Wally Mathews points out, let's just hope Sheff can judge a fight better than a fly ball.

Tough week for Nebraska. First, former cornhusker running back Thunder Collins was convicted of murder. Then Bo Pelini dismissed another running back, Quentin Castille, for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Word is, Tom Osborne is outraged. At Pelini.

"If he's so good," asks my kid, "then how come they call him a Pujols?"

Good thing Plaxico didn't go to trial. He'd have done more time than the Lockerbie bomber.

How about that SOB getting off the plane in Libya with a Nike cap?

Guess it was only a matter of time before someone went after the terrorist demographic.
