  • A 36-year-old coming back from his second Tommy John surgery is doing “fantastic” on his climb back to health and the majors, just as he planned.

  • Enough, already, about the deflated footballs. I have heard enough about how the New England Patriots would somehow try to gain a competitive advantage by cheating! That is something that never EVER happens in the NFL. Why, that would be like stepping on the star quarterback’s calf, barking at a referee so you would get the […] ... read more...
