REGARDING FRIDAY’S sports section article about The Hartford Yard Goats banning peanuts at their ballpark: Gotta better one for you. Albuquerque Isotopes have banned sunflower seeds for years. Ever notice how many ball players are shown with their mouths stuffed with sunflower seeds. Funny how both these teams are minor league teams of The Colorado Rockies. Seems the nuts are in the front office instead of on the field or in the stands.
I DON’T EVEN eat peanuts at baseball games, but so help me God if the Isotopes ban peanuts at their games I will avoid their games like I have an allergy to baseball. A small peanut-free zone is fine. A total ban is just stupid.
TO ME, THREE problems stand out with Lobo men’s BB. (1) The team’s play is inconsistent. (2) The team’s big men frequently can’t/don’t finish at the rim. (3) A couple of the players play a lot of empty minutes. Not sure what can be done about (1) and (2) but surely the coach can make adjustments to remedy (3).

I DON’T THINK I’ve ever seen so many missed layups and point blank shots from players 6-8 and taller, as has been the case in the last two Lobos men’s games. It’s baffling.

TURNOVERS WILL continue to be the Achilles heel for the ladies. Valuing possessions must become a higher priority if they are to succeed in the postseason.

MATT KUCHAR may be trying to clean up his mess, but too little too late. He will always be linked with other pro athlete cheapskates. He probably eats out regularly with “no tippin’ Scottie Pippen.” I wonder how much he donated to the Mayakoba Foundation? $3k? Or did he chip off an extra $2k and call it a good day for the charity?

PEOPLE WOULD rather point their finger at perceived corruption rather than see the Lobos do well in anything. #NewMexicoTrue
