It's unclear right now if the game will be considered a forfeit or will attempt to be made-up during the shortened 60-game season. As of now, tonight's Phillies/Yankees game is still scheduled to be played.

MLB and MLBPA announce a deal with the Cuban Baseball Federation that allows Cuban baseball players a safe and legal way to sign with a MLB club.: The objective of the agreement, which is the product of years of negotiations with the FCB, is to end the dangerous trafficking of Cuban players who desire to play professional baseball in the United States, a practice that has been documented in legal proceedings and media reports, and which has caused significant hardship to Cuban players and their families.

What the Hell Happened to Darius Miles? : Written by Darius Miles, edited by Quentin Richardson -- Dudes like me ain’t supposed to talk about this type of stuff. I’m about to tell you some real shit. Things I haven’t told anybody. But first, we gotta go back in time. We gotta go back to when the NBA was still the NBA. Way back when I had the pager with the two-way alert. I’m about to tell you the most Y2K story ever. I’m about to tell you how I almost died at Alonzo Mourning’s crib in the year 2000 on some dumb shit.

NBA Playoff Pickem: Make Your Conference Finals Picks

I'm getting a weird glitch where I can't make my picks via the form (in multiple browsers and log-out/log-in)

So anyways: Celtics in 6

I feel pretty good about saving the rest of my picks for the WCF.

Khudobin really saved their asses last night (no pun intended). One of the biggest things that scares me is the shots-on-goal differential in this series. At one point, I think about midway through the second period, it was something like 22-6 in favor of Vegas, despite the Stars having had at least two power plays. That's....not good. But they seem to be finding a way to win.

Dobby played his butt off last night. Both goalies went into the locker room after the third period just completely dragging ass, to the point I wasn't sure who was going to be in the crease on either side in OT. I'm not surprised it ended so quickly, but I'm glad it was Radulov that got the first legit opportunity.

The Stars need to quit shooting themselves in the foot with dumbass penalties though. Giving Vegas a 5-on-3 in the third was a really bad move.

But yeah, it's definitely been exciting.

The NHL must be super stoked to have Vegas, Dallas, Tampa, and the by-far less popular NYC team as their final four.

Let's go Stars!!!

Yup. I just put my picks in for the Semis, but didn't choose anyone that has already played.

It's an odd year.
