eighth at wrigley field. indians lead the cubs 7-4. martinez, a shot. cliff went seven innings, gave up three earned runs. indians lead 7-4 in the eighth. he didn't say he was retiring but glavine says he'll not pitch in the major lowings this year. he had been pitching in the minor leagues before being released by the braves earlier in month. the opportunities seem to be limited around the major leagues. sending this text message to waga tv in atlanta -- i'm not going to pitch and for now he'll be a full time bad -- dad. ordonez benched in detroit. manager jim leyland says he's tried everything.
he's homer less in 38 straight games. prior to this year ordonez was a big hero in detroit. 2006, had that walk-off game winning shot in game four of the league championship series. the following year he led baseball, batting .363. he's been selected to a pair of all-star games since coming to detroit. speaking of the tigers the club extending jim leyland's contract through 2011. he was in the last year of his deal. he's 64 years old. it's his fourth year in detroit. led the tigers to that pennant in 2006. >> chad ochocinco, big thursday, feeling pretty good about his team this season at minicamp. he was a full participant. he said despite last season, he thinks this team this season is
playoff bound. >> it's going to be a great year. we're going to the playoff. i look at us on paper -- paper don't mean anything. i look at us in practice -- it don't mean anything, but the progress, i see it. i can come out on a limb and say what we're going to do because i've done it before and it's happened. >> gatorade cooler talk. nfl analyst eric allen. you heard your man. the bengals are making the playoffs. what do you think of mr. ochocinco's predictions? >> chad is a phenomenal football player. a guy on the brink of being one of the most dominant receivers in the league until a couple of years about -- ago. defensively they finished 12th and they added some pieces to the puzzle on that side of the ball. but offensively, that's a combination they have to work. those two guys have to get together and make it happen. he has to go back to the chad ochocinco of 2005, 2006 when he was really making it happen.
>> and he was really chad johnson. what do you think about his prediction? >> i think because they're playing in the same division as the super bowl champion and other quality football teams i don't think they'll make the playoffs. i think they'll be a 7-9 team, but that's a huge bump up from where they finished last year. >> chad made his prediction a few hours later on "nfl live." mike golic said the bengals were going to have a hard time making it to the playoffs and young chad had an exception. which brings us to our tweet of the day -- ochocinco explaining why he uses twitter to express himself. >> i just wanted to address it. now to have a way to reach out to all the sportscasters in the media world this, twitter
thing, i'm really loving is, just letting them know how i feel sometimes. it's outright ridiculous. he has the world at my hand by working at espn but i also have the world at my hand now by being able to tweet. he can say how he feels and i can say how i feel. the first thing that came to my mind, i've been doing all this training so why not let's fight? >> he's smiling too. i don't think he wants to fight golic. >> i don't know. golic's been on my team and he's a lover, no the a fighter. >> how do you see twitter, facebook affecting a player's relationship? >> it kind of levels the playing field for some of these football players. not all of them. i don't want the third-string guard on twitter but these guys have a great opportunity to level the playing field. it makes it convenient to core
respond back and forth with other guys. i would rather him tweet than do this stuff. if he's tweeting it's quick and he can go on with his workout. the most important thing is how convenient and easy it is and how fast you can get your information. in you can be on twilighter and then on espn after that if you want. you have to be a player, not just any bum. i would ramp see the fight, but keep it nice. >> would you have done that on twit summer and -- twitter? >> no, i would have been too busy, running the sand dunes and the ocean. i didn't have time for that. but now i might pick it up. >> still ahead, donte' stallworth facing jail time. hear why michael smith says the nfl came down so hard on him. the heat won't start redoing their roster until they know if
dwyane wade sticks around. pat riley said he had a proposal ready for him. lamar odom says he wants to stay with the champs. the power forward is an unrichted freeing. that's a problem with trevor aariza also in the same situation. he averaged 14 boards nine points a game. >> i know i can play and i know i can help any team that i play on. you sit here today, it seems like it just went by so fast. you know, from not making the playoffs to winning the championship, now being an unrestricted free agent with the opportunity to leave. feels a little surreal, as a champion as well. hopefully embling will work out and i get to stay hope. >> he brings up a good point.
she getting paid. >> 14.1, that's paid. >> let's get paid again. with kobe on board, lakers don't need odom to score as much. but look at the points and what they did in the playoffs. odom made quite a difference in making them a championship team. coming up on "sportscenter" -- how do you like my role now? what's keeping pedro from pitching in the majors again? mark martin showing the young guns a thing or two. see how he's doing snag m.j., the robert, brett favre couldn't. only one way to make "sportscenter" and it's not good. not good top 10 on "sportscenter" soon. come on. come on. come on. there for you...
