Yankees One Win Away After Brad Lidge Collapse

The fault does not lie with Lidge.Using the exaggerated shift with a man on base cost the game.Once there was a man on third, Lidge could not use his out pitch , the slider and the the Yankees and most of America knew it.Any pro batter can hit a fastball when he knows it's coming whether it's 89 mph or 96 mph. Only Nolan Ryan had the kind of fastball that few could hit....Lidge had to hit the dirt so the catcher could get his throw off,no way he could have covered third.Watch the rerun, Lidge was damn near prone when the catchers throw went over his head, by the time he got to his feet, Damon was halfway to third.

"Once a player hits a home run, that's a fact. It's on TV. Everybody sees it. (The NCAA) can't copyright that fact. The blog wasn't a simulcast or a recreation of the game. It was an analysis."

All sports end their broadcasts with the copyright spiel. We as fans are so used to it, we for the most part carry on as if it didn't exist.I always wondered what would happen if they tried to enforce it. Would I be guilty of copyright infringment for describing a play I saw on Tv to my friends.Think they will need a few thousand more prisons built for us hardened sports criminals.

Joe Niekro dies at the age of 61

I was at the game where they found the nail file in his back pocket, much ado about nothing, he routinely filed his nails in the dugout as it helped him control that wicked knuckleball. He will be sorely missed.

The future of online sports betting

The gambling sites will find a way around the new law, most likely creating their own offshore financing site.Neteller which is based in England is still accepting transactions from US customers.
