It’s getting closer to the trading deadline in major league baseball. Right now the Chicago Cubs are the only team selling off some of their pitching. Scott Feldman went to Baltimore earlier in the season and just this week Matt Garza was traded to the Texas Rangers. There’s still a lot of talk about some pitchers. Jake Peavey of the Chicago White Sox has been talked about and lately so has Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee. Lee actually has been scratched from his start tonight (Saturday) because of a sore neck. Maybe the Phillies didn’t want him to make another start while they try to work out a trade. As I believe we’ve talked about on the show July 31st isn’t the end of trades for your favorite team. After July 31st a player has to go through waivers before he can be traded.

NFL training camps have opened and their’s been a lot of coverage from them. I saw some coverage from the New England Patriots camp and surprise, surprise they found a way to talk quite a bit about Tim Tebow. I guess this is to be expected because the major media can’t let Tebow go, but he’s a 3rd string quarterback. They all went wild when he caught a couple of passes from 2nd string quarterback Ryan Mallet yesterday. I haven’t quite figured out the fascination with Tebow, but the media loves him. On Friday’s show we talked about this and we’re wondering if it’s that he’s a safe story. We didn’t think Tebow would end up on the wrong side of the law and that’s why they like to talk about him. For a guy who probably won’t take a snap from the center all season Tebow makes quite a bit of news.

As we’ve discussed a few times there are quite a few fantasy football drafts that have already happened. I’d love to know what the guy who drafted Aaron Hernandez feels right now. What if you reached and took Percy Harvin early in your draft. There’s a chance Harvin may need hip surgery and it’s been reported he could miss anywhere from two (2) to four (4) months and some reports are saying he’d miss the entire season. Did you draft Geno Smith figuring he’d eventually beat out Mark Sanchez. Did you draft Michael Vick or Nick Foles or even reached farther for Matt Barkley; one of them will start for the Eagles this season. There will be more injuries between now and the season opener and these guys who drafted early are going to be looking back and shaking there heads over these draft picks. I enjoy fantasy football as much as the next guy, but there’s no chance I’d even get into a league with a draft that’s done this early. One (1) or two (2) bad injuries and your season is over before the kickoff of week 1.

I saw where a former employee at the Biogenesis clinic mentioned that there are more major league baseball players who received P.E.D’s from Anthony Bosch whose names haven’t come out yet. This former employee said there are players in all the other major sports and MMA that saw Anthony Bosch. You have to wonder how many more names might come out of this situation.
