We're about midway through the 2013 MLB season, and the Pittsburgh Pirates — yes, those Pittsburgh Pirates — are quietly putting together their best campaign in 20 years. As of this morning, the Buccos are 38-26, which is good for third place in the way competitve NL Central. They're 4 games out of first, and a half game behind the Reds in the Wild Card race.
But Tuesday, the Pirates put the rest of the division — and league — on notice. They're serious about winning. Right now. And to prove it, they called up top prospect, pitcher Gerrit Cole.
Yesterday, the Boston Red Sox met the Tampa Bay Rays for a game in Tampa. After the top of the first inning, the Red Sox led 6-0 and it looked like it would be a short night at the ballpark. But the Rays scrapped and clawed and fought back, and tied the game. The BoSox ultimately won the game, but it took 14 innings and ended after midnight!
For as long as that game was, it was nothing compared to two games over the weekend. The Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers played 18 innings before the Blue Jays won, 4-3. Not to be outdone, the Mets and Marlins needed 20 innings (!!) to reach an end to their game. The Marlins took the victory, 2-1.
Twenty innings is a lot of baseball. Surely it set some sort of record for length of a game, right? Wrong.
Well, most of them. Some teams held minicamps last week, and others hit minicamp next week. But today, 23 NFL teams hit their practice fields for mandatory minicamp today. For the next three days, coaches will get their first look at the players who hope to make their squads for the start of the 2013-14 NFL season.
The biggest minicamp story has to be Tim Tebow joining the New England Patriots. But there are other storylines to watch, too.
Just when you thought the Tim Tebow saga was over: ESPN reporter Ed Weder says that the New England Patriots are signing Tebow and he'll report to Patriots mini-camp on Tuesday. Just a few days ago, Patriots coach Bill Belichick had to set the record straight about his feelings on Tebow.
Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams pulled off perhaps the least surprising Grand Slam victories this weekend when they won the men's and women's singles finals at the 2013 French Open.
After dropping Game 1 on Thursday night, the Miami Heat evened up the NBA Finals by blowing out the San Antonio Spurs, 103-84. The game was close heading into halftime, with the Heat holding a slim lead. But then Miami decided to obliterate the Spurs, going on a 33-5 run in the second half that included another sick block from LeBron.
Tiagop Splitter looked like he had a sure-fire dunk. But LeBron, roaming under the net, broke from his coverage, timed his jump, and said "No you don't."
