8/19: MLB, Nadal, Preseason Gridiron

No huge lead story outside of the olympic stuff...will catch that later...
  • MLB: CC Sabathia has been utterly unhittable since going to the NL....another dominating performance from him, and he may actually have an NL cy young shot even with only half a season....BJ Upton just won't run full-speed to first...I don't get it?....Greg Maddux to the Dodgers....well I'd certainly rather have him than Glavine...laughter...he's still a fairly consistent option and I'm sure they didn't give up much....I like it...
  • Ian Kinsler, having a breakout campaign in his own right, will likely be shelved for the year with a hernia injury....this is damaging for him as he's literally been lighting it up...get well soon
  • Remember all those big defensive signings for the Browns? How bout giving up 30 points before the starters even came out in the first half last night against the Giants? On the bright side, Brady Quinn looked very good in relief of Derek Anderson who may have a concussion....
  • Kyle Orton to start! He's no Caleb Hanie...lol....but Orton's been the better option (over Rex) for years now...it's about time....
  • I'm so sick of the Bengals...they took a morality stance against Chris Henry (finally!) and now are going back on it the minute Chad Johnson looks dinged.....what could possibly motivate them to resign this clown? I don't understand the logic....
  • Rafael Nadal is tennis' new number 1....ending the unmatched reigns of both Federer at #1 AND Nadal with a ludicrous 160 straight weeks at #2...Congrats to him as he's clearly been the better of the 2 players lately...that said...My money's on Federer at the US Open...
  • OH THE HUMANITY! Mark Sanchez's huge injury for USC has turned out to be so minor that he may even start the opener....yea...this one is DEFINITELY larger than Sturdivant's for UGA....
More later

Not Only will Federer not win the U.S Open, he wont even make the finals. You can take that to the bank. Djokovic and Nadal in the finals and Nadal takes it.
