Running for a Safer Future - SERIOUSLY

Hello fellow BSDers, I'll preface this by asking the editors to remove this post if they feel it encroaches on any guidelines for this great site. I know I can I act like a jerk on here...

Tyler Gaffney returning to Stanford

1

Pirates minor leaguer Tyler Gaffney is leaving the system to return to Stanford and resume his football career.

Rams to trade #2 pick

2

In a move that surprises hopefully no one, the Rams have decided to trade their #2 pick (according to sources). Dear Rick, please bring us Matt.

Sandusky in prez box days before arrest

11

Somebody called it yesterday that ESPN was going to make a big deal out of this. Here is the first report. Sorry if it's already been posted.

Paterno's Name removed from B1G Trophy

6

"The trophy and its namesake are intended to be celebratory and aspirational, not controversial. We believe that it's important to keep the focus on the players and the teams that will be competing in the inaugural championship game." -Jim Delaney

TK out with concussion symptoms

4

This is unfortunate. TK reportedly experienced concussion-like symptoms last night. He's out tonight.

Anybody want Aaron Curry

3

Adam Schefter indicates that the Seahawks are willing to trade Aaron Curry for a mid-round pick. He's young and has the pedigree, so losing a 3rd or 4th wouldn't hurt nearly as much as the trade for Moss did. We have depth issues at LB, bring him in and have Singletary set him straight. Anyone else in?

ESPN needs a new MNF theme song, Williams Jr pulls out

+

danny lloyd gets his wish. ESPN will need a new theme song after Hank WIlliams Jr. decided to pull the use of his song after this week's decision.

Kluwe, Nate Jackson (who?) fight on Deadspin over Kluwe's tweets

+

The title link is to Jackson's piece in which he makes fun of punters, but does not necessarily dispute anything Kluwe's tweets claimed. Link below is Kluwe's response. http://deadspin.com/5823788/chris-kluwe-responds-can-i-kick-it-yes-i-can

Surging Pirates showing signs they're for real

1

Today is Pirates love day at ESPN. Crasnick does a pretty good job with this article IMO...at least relative to some of the other stuff that has been written recently.

Mets would pay rest of Beltran's salary

3

As if there were any additional reasons needed to talk about Beltran, the Mets are willing to pay the rest of Beltran's salary this season for more/better prospects.

Trial ordered in attack on Chris Snyder's wife

3

The guy that attacked Snyder's wife has been ordered to stand trial. I'm just hoping a possible jail sentence includes fighting a healthy Snyder.

The Long, Strange Trip of The Dock Ellis LSD No-Hitter Story

6

Deadspin does it's Deadspin-best today in detailing Ellis' no hitter while on LSD. Special guest appearance in this article by Bob Smizik. They also have another story related to this on their site, but I didn't think it was appropriate for BD.

Positive injury updates for Crosby, Malkin

2

Crosby is working out two times a day and Malkin should be ready by training camp, per HCDB.

Best story of first half? Try the Pirates

2

David Schoenfield of ESPN's SweetSpot deems the Pirates the best surprise of 2011's first half. Why? Because Andrew McCutchen is awesome, the defense is better, the starting pitching is better, and Joel Hanrahan is awesome.

Mike Yeo named head coach of Minnesota Wild

8

Former Pens assistant Mike Yeo has been named head coach of the Wild, his first head coaching gig.

Defending the win: Correia racks up Ws

1

Steve Berthiaume discusses Kevin Correia's win success despite his underwhelming stats. His main reason for Correia's wins lies in the fact that Correia is simply not being hit hard. I'm not sure of Berthiaume's baseball expertise, but I still thought this was an interesting read.

Brendan Shanahan replaces Colin Campbell

27

The title says it all, I think. Still in the "source" stage of things, but interesting nonetheless.

How does the Pirates offseason look 1/3 of the way through the season?

According to our good friend Bob Smizik, 1/3 of the season is a good way to evaluate how a player will perform the rest of the season.  This is obviously not a hard and fast rule (ask Adam LaRoche)...

Barry Bonds Will Pay College Bills For Bryan Stow's Children

10

Say what you want about Barry, but this is a classy move on his part. And he didn't brag about it to anyone.

Roberto Clemente's 3,000th Hit, In Glorious Graphic Novel Form

1

Sometimes, Deadspin posts some good things. I quickly flicked through this. I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I did.

Question for my fellow Pens fans

This Friday, I will be traveling to Raleigh to watch our beloved Penguins take on the Hurricanes.  Has anyone been to the RBC Center before?  Anything to check out?  What about around the...

Forcier to Miami

1

Tate Forcier (formerly of Michigan) has transferred to Miami. My guess is he'll be the starting QB after he takes the year off. When the time comes, the Hokies D will need a bit more speed.

Congrats to the Packers

You know, I'm probably going to catch a lot of flak for this, but whatever (Gates, delete this if you so desire).  Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers.  Winning the Super Bowl is an...

Cross Lars Anderson trade off?

Red Sox sign Jenks The Red Sox have signed Bobby Jenks to a 2 year deal.  He is likely to be a set up man and may push Papelbon out of the closer's role...finally.  The bad news?  This may convince...

Jackson on IR

2

Looks like Ramsey will get the start if Favre can't go. I know people don't like Jackson, but he is at least a better option than Ramsey IMO.
