As always there’s a lot of stuff to get into this week, but at Sports Time Radio we had a big announcement on Sunday. Dan the Man wasn’t sure if he would be available to make the show; so Mr. Fantasy stepped in. As it turned out, Dan the Man showed and we did a three person show. We got into some football talk and between 8:40 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. Mr. Fantasy finally said he’d write the running quarterback blog. This has been a topic on the show since the end of the football season when Mr. Fantasy started talking about how much he dislikes this style of offense. You can go into the Sports Time Radio archives and listen to it; so now we have it and will see how long it takes us to get this blog.

While the San Antonio Spurs are at home waiting. The Miami Heat need one more win to close out the Indiana Pacers. Chris “Birdman” Andersen got himself suspended for game 6 because of the cheap shot he took in-game 5. Oddly if you look at the stats the Heat are a better offensive team without Andersen. Of course he’s not there to score and he brings those extra things a championship team needs. Miami has a chance to close out the series in Indiana tonight (Saturday). You have to wonder if the long lay off for the Spurs will hurt them. They are a veteran team and the rest might actually help them. Tony Parker has had a calf issue and the time off will do him good. Game 1 of the finals is June 6th; so we’re getting close to crowning a NBA champion.

In an odd NHL fact the four teams remaining in the playoffs the Chicago Blackhawks, the Boston Bruins, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Los Angels Kings are the last four Stanley Cup champions. Dan the Man and I both picked the Blackhawks to win the cup at the start of the year; so he and I still have a shot at being right. On a side note Mr. Fantasy picked the St. Louis Blues. The Blackhawks are coming off an exciting game 7 win over the Detroit Red Wings. The Kings are the defending Stanley Cup champions; so will see if they can get back to the finals. The Penguins have looked like the best team in the NHL through the playoffs. We’ll see if they can continue that against the Bruins. I think the NHL playoffs may be the most exciting of all the sports. What’s better than sudden death overtime?

I’ve actually mentioned this on the show a couple of times through the week, whether it was Wednesday or Friday; I think it’s worth mentioning again. If you had Dioner Navarro in your line up on May 29th you are the greatest fantasy baseball alive. Navarro went 3 for 3 with 6 RBI’s, he also scored 4 runs as well. I would be interested to know how many players in a daily fantasy league took a chance on Navarro; it would’ve paid off in a big, big way. I know later in that same baseball day Washington Nationals 3rd baseman Ryan Zimmerman also hit 3 homers in a game. I gave a special mention to Dioner Navarro because he’s a back up catcher on an under .500 team and he’s not an everyday player.
