Transactions....

Has anyone turned it around more than Alex Gordon of the Royals? And look! The Royals have a nucleus to build around.

I know its only 21 games, but boy....suddenly that Jason Werth contract looks really, really long.

So the buzz has the Falcons trying to move up to grab Julio Jones. That would be a really nice move for their offense, but they would have to sell the farm to do it.

Another rumor: The Redskins trading up to the number 2 pick to get Blaine Gabbert...the Redskins better be sure about Gabbert. They need help everywhere and sacrificing a ton of picks to get this kid is a risky, risky move.

Jair Jurrjens is back. Last night he got 13 outs with 43 pitches. And wow, that makes the Braves rotation a totally dominating one. How dominating? Brandon Beachy has the highest ERA of the starting 5. With a 3.68. He has a WHIP of 1.091.

I know Frank Thomas wont be elected to the Hall of Fame for a few years, but I hope his speech is going to be angry and that he rips into the steroid users of his generation. I really do.

The New York Knicks make many, many dumb moves. This was not one of them.

Heard a very, very sad fact. Paul Maholm tied Zach Duke for most career wins at PNC Park with 31. PNC opened in 2001. Wow.

Is Albert Haynesworth trying to make himself the most hated man in sports?

The more I think about it, the more I think that there are going to be a rash of teams trying to trade back into the first round to take some of the QBs. Colin Kirkpatrick or Christian Ponder could be taken by the Bengals, Niners, Titans or Cardinals late in the first round on a trade-up. And the Jets and Steelers could recoup picks.

I think we're going to be seeing more and more of Joe Mauer at DH. At only 28, he's beginning to break down a bit. He's the franchise. You can't risk him back there behind the plate.

Everybody who had the Cleveland Indians 2.5 games ahead in the AL Central, raise your hands. Stop lying.

Do people really care whether Jeter and A-Rod are best buddies? Whether they hang out and watch Die Hard 2 and have beers or whether they don't...it doesn't make one iota of difference.

Could somebody please tell B.J. Upton that all the "potential" he has is bogius, that 2007 was a long time ago and that he is just not a good baseball player.

And finally, this blog hates soccer. Hates it. A lot. But if this is real....this is ridiculous.
