Question of the Day
HE SAID WHAT?

THE BEST OF THE WEEKEND IN SPORTS
Lakers vs. Nuggets
Kobe and friends can put away pesky Denver on Friday, but don’t expect the Nuggets to roll over and die on their home court, where they went 33-8 in the regular season.
Penguins at Red Wings
The Stanley Cup Finals begin Saturday with Pittsburgh looking to get revenge for Detroit’s victory last year.

TWT FIVE ” PLAYERS WHO SHOULD BE LEADING ALL-STAR VOTING
1. Raul Ibanez, Phillies - He has 17 home runs, 44 RBI and is batting .339. Yet he’s sixth among NL outfielders, even trailing the suspended Manny Ramirez.
2. Hanley Ramirez, Marlins - He leads all NL shortstops in slugging and on-base percentage and is one of the best all-around players in baseball. Yet he trails the Brewers’ J.J. Hardy, who boasts a .247 batting average.
3. Justin Morneau, Twins - No knock on Kevin Youkilis, who has been awesome at first base. But Morneau has been as productive and didn’t miss 15 games due to injury.
