    Quote of the Day
    “Playing on a torn meniscus is not easy. All I can do is keep managing it. Do my best, get as much treatment as I can. Try to manage it to make sure it doesn’t swell up too much. Obviously, the pain is going to be there. That’s normal. But it’s all about managing it and doing whatever it takes to win. My goal is to win a championship and I’m going to put my body on the line to make sure that happens. I’m going to give everything I got.”
    76ers’ star Joel Embiid

    Monday’s Den: Wrapping up a sports weekend

    13) Patrick Cantlay won the Memorial golf tournament in Ohio Sunday, winning in a playoff against Colin Morikawa. Cantlay banked a cool $1.7M for the win, but that wasn’t the biggest golf story this weekend.

    Jon Rahm led this tournament by six strokes after the third round, but he tested positive for COVID twice and had to withdraw. Guy leads by six strokes after three rounds, he ain’t going to lose; testing positive cost him $1.7M, plus a few more weeks on the bench.

    12) Orioles’ OF Cedric Mullins went 5-5 with two homers Saturday, becoming the third Oriole ever to do that- Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken Jr were the others. Thats Oriole royalty there.

    Mullins is a vastly improved player this season, hitting .322 with a .923 OPS. Coming into this season, he was a career .225 hitter in 374 career AB’s.

    11) Atlanta Falcons are going to trade 32-year old WR Julio Jones to Tennessee, getting draft picks in the 2nd/4th round in exchange.

    New Falcons coach Arthur Smith had been an assistant coach in Tennessee the last 10 years, so its an interesting deal.

    Arthur Smith trivia: His father is the founder/CEO of FedEx. He is really, really rich.

    10) Milwaukee 2, Arizona 0— Diamondbacks have lost 17 straight road games.

    9) Reds 8, Cardinals 7— Cincinnati led 7-0, blew the lead, then won when Jesse Winker hit his third homer of the game in the 9th inning. Reds swept this four-game series.

    8) Rays 7, Rangers 1— Texas has lost 11 of its last 12 games.

    7) Clippers 126, Mavericks 111 (LA wins series 4-3)
    — First game in series where home side won
    — Kawhi Leonard scored 28, had 10 boards, nine assists.
    — Luka Doncic scored 46 in a losing cause.

    6) Hawks 128, 76ers 124 (Atlanta leads 1-0)
    — Joel Embiid scored 39 while playing with torn meniscus in his knee.
    — Hawks were 20-47 on the arc, 24-39 inside the arc.
    — Ben Simmons was 3-10 on the foul line; this will never not bother me, how a player of his skill can be so putrid on the foul line.

    5) Andy Dalton is Chicago Bears’ new QB, until rookie Josh Fields is ready to go; Dalton has been in NFL for 10 years, has a 74-66-2 record, playing for 7 different offensive coordinators.

    4) Former NBA great Gary Payton is going to be the basketball coach at Lincoln U, which is in Oakland and doesn’t yet have a basketball team. Their eventual goal is to be a Division I team; Payton has never coached, which is no big deal.

    Must admit, I’ve never heard of Lincoln U, until now.

    3) Phillies 12, Giants 6— Game was delayed in the 8th inning when the protective netting behind the plate on the first base side fell down. Took them a decent amount of time to get the netting back up. Naturally, they were booed by the fans when things were going slowly.

    2) Orlando Magic fired coach Steve Clifford, who was 96-131 in three years there, making the playoffs the last two seasons, but not this one.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL- Mets, Mil or Cubs, Giants. Wild Card: Dodgers @ Padres
    AL- Rays, White Sox, A’s. Wild Card: Astros @ Red Sox

    ********************************************

    Tuesday’s Den: Nobody asked me, but…….

    — There isn’t enough good news in the world, but in the past week, 8-year old TJ Olsen was the recipient of a heart transplant, and is said to be doing very well. Great news for that family.

    TJ’s father posted a 12-second video on social media:
    “Hi everybody. Thank you for thinking of me. Thank you for praying with me. We love you guys, bye.”

    Obviously, for the kid to get a new heart, someone else had to pass away, and that is very sad. Does the family that donated the heart stay in contact with this kid’s family? They certainly have a great bond to build a new friendship around.

    — With legalized gambling more prevalent these days, NBA and college hoop teams need to juice up their security around the court, to protect the players/refs.

    In the Wizards-76ers series, some jackass ran on the floor and touched the backboard before he was tackled by security. What if he had been a gambler who was losing and went on tilt, and was ticked off at one of the players? Potentially horrific situation.

    — Major league baseball teams with highest payrolls:
    1) Dodgers $250,022,632
    2) Bronx $202,186,977
    3) NY Mets $196,470,288

    — Major league teams with lowest payrolls:
    30) Cleveland Indians $52,607,580
    29) Pittsburgh Pirates $54,944,471
    28) Baltimore Orioles $57,688,298

    — So far this season, Colorado Rockies’ catchers are 8-86 (.093) on the road.

    — Tampa Bay Rays have scored 122 runs from the 7th inning on, most in MLB so far.

    — Alex Rodriguez thinks Alex Cora is the best manager in baseball:

    “I think Alex Cora is the best manager in the game. He’s a world champion and he understands the game, 360. Obviously it’s paying dividends. I knew he would improve the team but I didn’t know it would be this paradigm shift…….”

    This is Cora’s third year as a big league skipper, interrupted by last year’s suspension for his part in the Houston sign-stealing debacle- he was a coach there. Interesting opinion by ARod.

    — Kansas City Royals brought up prospect Jackson Kowar to make his MLB debut Monday nite, but it didn’t go well; the Florida alum faced seven batters, got only two of them out, throwing 39 pitches and not finishing the first inning.

    Big jump from AAA to the majors; his next start is in Oakland this weekend, so hopefully he won’t bounce back right away.

    — Seattle Mariners brought their big prospect up to the majors last month, but Jarred Kelenic went 8-83 in 23 games, and now he is back in AAA, where the manager will have to be a master psychologist to give the kid his confidence back.

    Kelenic had three hits in his second MLB game, but is 0 for his last 39.

    — Over the last decade, the LA Angels haven’t drafted one pitcher who has thrown 100+ innings in a season for them; this is epic failure. They’ve got Trout, they had Pujols, still have Rendon, Ohtani and Walsh, but pitching is an important part of baseball.

    — Cincinnati Reds are 9-6 in one-run games this year, which doesn’t sound like much, until you consider that from 2014-20, they were 138-224 (.381) in one-run games, so that a big improvement for them.

    — Mikey Dixon is a 6-2 guard who will be playing his final season of college basketball this coming winter; the kid has gotten around.
    2016-17— played in 31 games for Quinnipiac, shot 37% on the arc
    2018-19— played in only 14 games for St John’s; big jump up from the NEC.
    2019-20— played in 18 games for Grand Canyon, shooting 43% on the arc.
    2020-21— played in 20 games for Grand Canyon, shooting only 27.5% on the arc.

    2021-22— He’ll be playing at Idaho; everyone who played last year got another free year of eligibility, which he is taking advantage of.

    Kid should write a book; not many people have gone to college in Connecticut, New York City, Arizona and Idaho.

    — Alabama football coach Nick Saban will turn 70 this fall; he signed a contract extension this week thru 2028— does anyone think he’ll still be coaching when he is 77?

    Contracts like this are meant to silence the whispers of rival recruiters, who might infer to their recruits that Saban is going to retire soon.

    — Middle of the night the other night, I’m watching Hoosiers for the 100th time, so of course I got to thinking about various conversations I’ve had about this movie.

    Buddy of mine and I have had a debate for years; who was the better coach, Norman Dale in Hoosiers (Gene Hackman) or Ken Reeves in The White Shadow (Ken Howard)?

    To me, this is simple; Ken Reeves was the much better coach:
    — In Norman Dale’s first game at Hickory High, he finished the game with four players on the court, and he had a healthy guy sitting on the bench.
    — If Jimmy Chitwood hadn’t decided to play, Coach Dale would’ve been fired quickly , and it would’ve wound up being kind of a depressing movie.
    — Even after Jimmy Chitwood started playing, Coach Dale always wanted to use him as a decoy to set up other players to score. Even his drunk assistant coach (Dennis Hopper) knew enough to draw up the picket fence play for Jimmy to score.

    — Coach Reeves played in the NBA, which had to be a big advantage for a high school coach.
    — Hoosiers trivia; the first choice to play Coach Dale was Jack Nicholson, then Robert Duvall.
    — Maris Valainis, the actor who played Jimmy, was the only actor of the Hickory kids who didn’t play high school basketball; he later became a golf pro.

    — Knicks’ coach Tom Thibodeau won NBA Coach of the Year, even though Suns’ coach Monty Williams got more first place votes.

    — Thibodeau has a fascinating background; he worked as an assistant coach for Bill Mussselman and Jerry Tarkanian (when he coached the Spurs). Two very unique personalities.
    — He spent four years as an assistant coach at Harvard, then jumped to Timberwolves when they were an expansion team- that had to be culture shock.
    — He’s also worked for Doc Rivers, Jeff Van Gundy; this a guy who needs to write a book about his career. He must have a boatload of great stories to tell.

    — Nets 125, Bucks 86 (Nets lead series 2-0)— Not a good advertisement for the league. There were only 16 free throws taken in the whole game. Hopefully the Bucks will play a little better when the series moves back to Milwaukee.

    14-1— Tyrrell Hatton
    16-1— Matthew Fitzpatrick
    20-1— Sungjae Im
    25-1— Tommy Fleetwood

    Quote of the Day
    “He has the best, quickest hands I’ve ever seen,. Whether you’re playing a stupid game in the pool with him or you’re playing slam ball. The guy’s hand-eye coordination is beyond elite. His hands are unbelievably underrated and allow him to be a solid defender without elite length. He has good length but not elite length without any ability to play above the rim……….they say the best baseball hitters like Ted Williams could see the seams of a baseball. I think he processes things that quickly but is able to play at his own speed.”
    Nuggets’ GM Tim Connelly, talking about Nikola Jokic

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Besides coaching the Giants, which major college football team did Jim Fassel coach?

    Tuesday’s quiz
    When Kareem Abdul-Jabbar entered the NBA (as Lew Alcindor), he played for the Milwaukee Bucks; they won the NBA title in Kareem’s 2nd season, the Bucks’ third year in existence

    Monday’s quiz
    Steph Curry led the NBA in scoring this season, at 32.0 ppg.

    ************************************************

    Wednesday’s Den: Mid-week musings……..

    13) Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, the Pirates big 3B prospect, Ke’Bryan Hayes, hit a home run in the first inning, off the Dodgers’ Walker Buehler, but there was one small problem.

    Hayes never touched first base, so he doesn’t get credit for a home run, or even a hit. Pirates don’t score a run; it just gets recorded as a long out.

    Watching the replay, it is unclear if the Pirates’ first base coach noticed the gaffe.

    Pittsburgh lost 5-3. Oy.

    12) Why I watch the whole NBA draft; the 41st pick of the 2014 draft was a kid from Europe named Nikola Jokic, definitely a project for the Denver coaches. He’s become a hell of a player, named MVP of the league Tuesday. Not bad for the 41st pick of the draft.

    11) Jazz 112, Clippers 109:
    — Clippers led by 13 at the half, were outscored 32-19 in third quarter.
    — Donovan Mitchell scored 45 points for the Jazz.

    10) My nominee for most underrated basketball player ever; Rick Barry. The guy was awesome, scoring 24.8 ppg in his career, but he bounced around a lot between the NBA/ABA, before bouncing around between teams was a popular thing to do.

    He shot 89.7% for the foul line, shooting underhanded, something more guys should try.

    In 1971-72, Barry AVERAGED 45.2 mpg for the ABA’s Nets, playing in 80 games, scoring 31.5 ppg. Lets see one of today stars do that.

    9) Golden Knights 3, Avalanche 2 (OT)
    — Vegas scores 0:50 into OT to take a 3-2 series lead.
    — #38 for the Knights is Patrick Brown, who is probably the only active NHL player with a legit shot to own part of an NFL team someday. His maternal grandfather was Wellington Mara, who owned the New Jersey Giants- his son John (Patrick’s uncle) still owns half the team.
    — Patrick Brown’s dad and paternal uncle also played in the NHL.

    8) Blue Jays are now booked to play home games in Buffalo thru July 21st.

    7) Was reading on the Interweb how lot of scouts/players think the talent gap between AAA and the major leagues is wider than ever, which helps explain how a prospect like Jarred Kelenic goes 8 for 83 and gets sent back down to the minors. Not having minor league games last year has put a damper on some of these prospects’ careers.

    6) Hopefully someone has already told Kelenic this, but Mike Trout went 7 for 43 at the start of his career, and he’s doing OK now. Takes time for some guys.

    5) Kris Bryant is having a terrific year for the Cubs, hitting .307 with a .959 OPS; he is listed on the All-Star ballot as a third baseman, but he hasn’t played there since April 20.

    He’s played all three outfield positions, some first base; he is useful all over the field, which is why he is going to become a lot wealthier this winter. Question is, will it be the Cubs who pay him, or some other team?

    4) NBA teams who lose Game 1 of a playoff series at home are 69-48-1 ATS in Game 2, in their last 118 chances.

    3) Washington’s new QB is 37-year old Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will be playing for his 9th NFL team; his W-L record as an NFL starter is 59-86-1. Against the spread, he is 69-69-8 ATS.

    2) Happy 70th birthday to Dave Parker, the best baseball player (other than Pete Rose) who isn’t in the Hall of Fame. The Cobra was awesome, hitting .290 for his career, with an OPS of .810- he hit 339 homers, stole 154 bases, won World Series rings in Pittsburgh, Oakland.

    Hopefully someday he’ll get inducted into Cooperstown; he deserves it.

    1) RIP to football coach Jim Fassel, who passed away this week at age 71. Fassel coached the Giants from 1997-2003, losing Super Bowl XXXV to the Ravens.

    Coach Fassel’s son John is special teams’ coach for Dallas; in 2016, he was the Rams’ special teams coach, and became interim head coach when Jeff Fisher got fired.

    During one late season game, the Rams ran this great trick play in the red zone, but it fooled the refs, who threw a flag that shouldn’t have been thrown. As the teams jogged off the field for halftime, Jim Fassel was running after the officials, yelling at them for their mistake.

    Jim Fassel was a QB in college, and threw the last pass in WFL history in 1975. I am told he was a decent guy, soft spoken for a coach. RIP, sir.

    *************************************************

    Thursday’s Den: Doing some thinking out loud…….

    — I’m sitting here like a damn fool at 3:45am watching the replay of a 1985 Bears-Packers game from Lambeau Field. Tim Ryan is the play-by-play guy, I’m assuming Johnny Morris is the analyst- he did most of the Bears’ games back then.

    ’85 Bears might’ve had the greatest defense ever; they didn’t allow any points in their first two playoff games, then won the Super Bowl 46-10. Great team.

    They played the Rams in the NFC title game that year; I had just turned 26, so supposedly I was an adult, but that day? Not so much.

    Bears led 10-0 near the end of the first half, but Rams are driving; I was very excited about the Rams’ chances, this was their third straight year in the playoffs. Was a big fan of Dieter Brock, their QB, an import from the CFL.

    I’m still a little superstitious about what clothes I wear when the Rams play, but back then, I took it to extremes; that year, it was a blue Rams polo shirt and white shorts. Every week.

    My house has a big kitchen in the back; my dad and I are back there, and two of my college friends are there. Rams hand the ball to Eric Dickerson just before halftime, he runs the ball inside the 5-yard line, but for whatever reason, they call timeout and don’t score.

    Not good.

    I know I’m about to flip out, because the game was effectively over, so I just storm out the back door and go sit on the hood of my car for the entire halftime. As I’m leaving the house, I hear my dad yelling/laughing “Don’t be an idiot!!!”

    It was January, it was Albany, and it was bleeping cold out. I’m sitting on the hood of my car in a golf shirt and shorts- no bueno, but it took me several minutes to realize how cold it was, that’s how mad I was. I’m waving at cars driving by; finally I go back inside and watch the inevitable loss. My friends got a good laugh out of it. I wasn’t laughing.

    When I say it was cold out, I’m talking ten below zero cold. Not my finest moment.

    In this Bears-Packers game, Forrest Gregg was Green Bay’s coach, Jim Zorn their QB- it was the first of only five starts for Zorn with the Packers.

    Bob McElwee was the ref in this game; 14 years later, he was the ref in the Super Bowl when the Rams beat Tennessee, the greatest game ever played. No sitting on my car that night.

    To further show my maturity level back then, when the Bears played New England in the Super Bowl two weeks later, I went to a house party with friends, but I refused to watch the game. Played ping pong the whole game; I like ping pong. Not sure I like it that much, but it was a fun night.

    — 29-year old Patrick Wisdom is hitting .364 in his first 16 games for the Cubs this season, with eight home runs. He is smoking hot right now; with David Bote/Matt Duffy on the IL, will be interesting to see how much Wisdom has to hit to keep his starting job.

    — NBA Summer League is going to be August 8-17 in Las Vegas; that’s a really fun event to watch, 5-6 games every day, in air conditioning with an excellent concession stand. If you’re a big NBA fan, this should be on your to-do list of things to see.

    — Enough already with Aaron Rodgers; the constant drama around him is numbing.

    a) If he gets traded, report it
    b) If he reports to training camp, report it
    c) If he retires, report it

    Otherwise, STFU!!!!

    — Astros 8, Red Sox 3— First time this year Boston starting pitchers allowed 5+ runs in consecutive games.

    — A’s 4, Diamondbacks 0— Arizona has lost its last 19 road games.

    — Mets 14, Orioles 1— Baltimore is 5-2 this month; they were 5-23 in May.

    — Texas Rangers DFA’d DH Chris Davis, who was hitting .157 with two homers, while getting paid $16.75M this season.

    — Indiana Pacers fired coach Nate Bjorkgren, who went 34-38 in his only season on the Pacers’ bench. Indiana had made the playoffs nine of the previous ten years.

    — Back in the mid-80’s, some people ran a business near Harvard University where they delivered condoms to college students.

    Their motto: “We come before you do.”

    Friday’s Den: Random stuff with weekend here……..

    — Started my college football research this week; last couple of football seasons have been weird for me, with the pandemic last year making it unusual for everyone, after my retina detached in October 2019, which screwed up the rest of that season for me.

    I’ll be posting some notes on college football from now until Labor Day; we start today with some stuff from the SEC. I’m told they really like college football in the south.

    — LSU went 5-5 LY, despite a +9 turnover ratio. They overhauled their coaching staff over the winter. Problem is, Joe Burrow lives in Cincinnati now. Ed Orgeron is a way better recruiter than he is a tactician; his new coordinators will need to be sharp guys.

    — Kentucky had a +10 turnover ratio; they went 4-6 in the regular season, but somehow made it to a bowl game, where they beat NC State 23-21.

    — Alabama also had a +10 turnover ratio; they won the national championship. Crimson Tide has only three starters back on offense this year.

    Four new head coaches in the SEC this year:
    Auburn, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt

    — Bad news for Ole Miss: they only have four starters back on defense.
    — Good news for Ole Miss: their defense sucked LY; it’ll be better with new starters.

    As the better college football magazines come out later this month, I’ll post better info, but we’re starting slow, which is fine, since we have a lot of time until the season starts.

    One quick Pac-12 note; Stanford started last year 0-2, then won its last four games, by a total of 10 points:
    — won 24-23 @ California
    — won 31-26 @ Washington
    — won 27-24 @ Oregon State
    — won 48-47 @ UCLA, in OT

    They lost their only home game LY, 35-32 to Colorado.

    — Willie Adames was hitting .197 when Tampa Bay traded him to Milwaukee; in his first 18 games for the Brewers, he’s hitting .308, and has been an offensive spark.

    — In 2015, Matt Harvey was 13-8, 2.71 in 29 starts for the Mets, when they lost the World Series to Kansas City. He was a big deal in New York City, the Dark Knight. Long time ago.

    Since then, Harvey is 29-50 in the major leagues; his ERA the last three years: 7.09, 11.57, 7.41 In his last seven starts this year, he’s allowed 36 runs in 23.2 innings pitched. Why is he still in the major leagues?

    — Minnesota 7, New York 5— Josh Donaldson tied it with a 9th inning homer, Hector Cruz walked it off two batters later with another one. Aroldis Chapman faced four hitters; they all scored.

    — Arizona Diamondbacks fired their hitting coaches; you lose 19 road games in a row, and heads are going to roll. Doubtful that Arizona’s pitching is the hitting coaches’ fault, but you never know.

    — ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian, on base running in the big leagues these days: “……..bad baserunning, the worst I can remember in the 41 years that I have covered the game.”

    Kurkjian isn’t an overly critical guy; those words carry some weight.

    Dusty Baker agrees: “Baserunning is terrible today. The two things we need the most work on is outfielders throwing and baserunning. Baserunning is just horrible.”

    — White Sox 2B Nick Madrigal tore his right hamstring, could be out for the year.

    — Bucks 86, Nets 83— NBA offices had to be relieved with this score; they need some series to be interesting, especially one with a New York City team in it. Nets still lead series 2-1.

    — Jazz 117, Clippers 111– Donovan Mitchell has scored 82 points in first two games of this series, which Utah won despite PG Mike Conley being out with an injury.

    — If the baseball playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL— Mets, Mil or Cubs, Giants. Wild Card: Padres @ Dodgers
    AL— Rays, White Sox, A’s Wild Card: Astros @ Red Sox
