SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Seems like the Raiders are already dealing with a "Vegas effect" by trading Lynn Bowden - murmurs suggest that the allure of the town was becoming a distraction to him and he needed to move on.

Of course, what better place to send a young man visited by temptation than Miami?

In the future, Mayock and Gruden may have to counter the surrounding influence of the Entertainment Capital of the World by drafting the majority of their players from schools like BYU, Valparaiso, and Liberty.

Well maybe not Liberty...

In case you missed the highlight:

Vladdy Guerrero Jr. did a straight steal of second base, and it wasn't even close.

That's a BIG man stealing a base right there.

I have only ever seen one MLB game. And the highlight was Big Bart Colon hitting a double.
