Ochocinco: If I was president, I'd ban all taxes

If Chad Ochocinco ever goes into politics, he'd take fiscal conservatism to a whole new level:

No more taxes, whatever you earn you can keep. I'll figure out the rest later RT @tscheine: What would you do if you were President? Chad Ochocinco (@ochocinco) March 9, 2012

And the answer to all those "Where's revenue going to come from?" naysayers is simple:

Print money just for those services only RT @MatthewMilligan: @ochocinco How would you pay for public services without taxpayers money? Chad Ochocinco (@ochocinco) March 9, 2012
Oh, wait:

I said I'd figure the rest out later geesh, let me think 1st RT @cindypark26: @ochocinco When you print money...that causes inflation... Chad Ochocinco (@ochocinco) March 9, 2012

Get back to us when you figure it out, Ocho. Sounds intriguing.

Red Sox secure playoff with 6-4 win over Rays


Red Sox secure playoff with 6-4 win over Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Dustin Pedroia hit his fourth career grand slam to help Rick Porcello get his major league-leading 22nd win, and the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-4 Saturday night for their 10th consecutive win.

The win secures them a spot in the postseason

Pedroia stopped an 0-for-17 skid with a single in the sixth and gave Boston a 6-3 lead with a seventh-inning drive off Danny Farquhar.

Porcello (22-4) gave up three runs, eight hits and struck out nine over 6 1/3 innings. He just missed getting his 12th consecutive start of seven or more innings and three runs or fewer, which would have moved him past Cy Young (1904) and Pedro Martinez (2000) for the longest stretch during the same season in franchise history.

Craig Kimbrel, the fifth Boston reliever, reached 30 saves for the sixth straight season despite allowing Logan Forsythe's solo homer in the ninth.

Brad Miller hit a two-run double in a three-run second that put Tampa Bay up 3-1 and gave him 80 RBIs.

Tampa Bay threatened in the second but failed to score due to two nice defensive plays. Pedroia made a throw from just in front of the outfield grass at second base on Mikie Mahtook's grounder to get Corey Dickerson at the plate. Third baseman Brock Holt made a solid play along the line on Alexei Ramirez's grounder and threw him out at first to end the inning.
