Greuther Fuerth will feature Canadian forward Olivier Occean who is the current top goal scorer in the 2. Bundesliga.

Tim Lincecum on this season's high quality pitching. I don't know whether he borrowed that quote from someone else, however, I like that approach almost as much as Doc's machine-like style.

Richard Griffin: Interview with Brandy Halladay


Toronto Star's Richard Griffin interviewed Brandy Halladay and they talked about the trade, leaving and loving Toronto etc. A really interesting and moving interview.
