5 Things You May Have Missed: Cliff Lee Farts On Camera, A-Rod ‘Mocumentary’ And Jack White At Wrigley
From Cliff Lee breaking wind off the mound to a Browns fan relieving himself on Art Modell’s grave, here are the five stories you may have missed this week.
If you’ve been playing fantasy sports long enough, you know it’s not the guys you pick up in round one and two that put your team in the playoffs, but those gems you added in the later rounds. Did you get laughed at when you picked up Scott Kazmir? Who is laughing now? But don’t fall completely in love with that early season steal; a few weeks of slumping could simply be reversion to the mean. Here are our picks for players to keep on a short leash in the 2nd half of your fantasy baseball campaign:
Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter is expected to start for the American League in the All-Star game Tuesday night in his last season playing professional baseball.
Derek Norris and Coco Crisp hit early three-run homers to back a strong start by Jesse Chavez, and the Oakland Athletics beat the New York Yankees 10-5 on Sunday.
Masahiro Tanaka tamed the highest-scoring team in the majors and the New York Yankees stopped a four-game skid, beating Oakland 2-1 Thursday and ending the Athletics’ five-game winning streak.
Yoenis Cespedes homered twice, Josh Donaldson hit a tiebreaking shot in the seventh inning and the Oakland Athletics overcame a four-run deficit to beat the skidding New York Yankees 7-4 Wednesday night for their fifth straight victory.
Have you ever really looked around at the types of people in the crowd during a baseball game? Well, maybe now you will.
Okay, whoa. Whoa whoa whoa. Where are you going? Don’t leave. Not rooting for them more than your own favorite teams. That’s not what I mean. Not even rooting for them to win championships. But rooting for them to be good. Rooting for them to be legitimate contenders.
Local cable providers love to remind us that we have nine – yes, nine – professional sports clubs, a way of persuading us to click on this package or that so we can view the screen-in-screen horror we call baseball, football, and basketball.
