Charles Barkley Wants Nothing To Do With Tiger Woods

The days of Charles Barkley and Tiger Woods hanging out appear to be over for good.

“It’s been very frustrating to watch everything that has transpired,” Barkley said Wednesday on ESPN New York 1050′s The Mike Lupica Show, “and getting rid of Steve Williams was probably the last straw for me.”

The TNT announcer hasn’t heard from Woods since the November 2009 incident that turned the golfer’s world upside down.

“You think you’re friends with a guy,” Barkley added. “You talk to him once a week for 15 years. You’re like, this dude is my friend, we do things, we have fun together. I haven’t talked to him in two years and I’m wondering what the hell is going on.” Read more

Audio: Jim Leyland Rails Against Talk Radio Second-Guessers

Tigers manager Jim Leyland took some heat from fans for having the audacity to lift Rick Porcello in the 9th inning of Sunday’s game against the Pirates when Porcello was nursing a one-hitter. Not a no-hitter, but a one-hitter. What’s more, the Tigers won the game, which made second-guessing Leyland even more ridiculous. But what do you expect from Tigers fans? They’re spoiled by success.

At any rate, Leyland wasn’t having it, so he let loose on fans who call into talk-radio shows to second-guess his moves.
