    Quote of the Day
    “There’s more talent around the league than there’s ever been. From a talent standpoint, the league is in a good space. But as pure basketball lovers — who love competition at the highest level — I think they gotta catch up in that department………They soft as hell……”
    Draymond Green

    Friday’s quiz
    NBA’s Rockets were an expansion team in 1967; where did they play their first four seasons, before moving to Houston?

    Thursday’s quiz
    Andrew Dice Clay played Lady Gaga’s father in A Star is Born.

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Art Fleming was the host of Jeopardy!, before Alex Trebek.

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

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

    13a) Least shocking story of the month: After two seasons with Oklahoma State, assistant coach Cannen Cunningham and the program have mutually agreed to part ways.

    Cannen Cunningham is Cade Cunningham’s brother; hiring Cannen and paying him a quarter million bucks is how Oklahoma State landed the best recruit in the country (Cade) last year. Now he is going to go help manage his younger brother’s career in the NBA. Go figure.

    Where does the NCAA draw the line on stuff like this: can a recruit’s mother be hired as a secretary and be paid a six-figure salary? Could a sibling be hired as a personal trainer, at $125K a year? What is legal and what isn’t? Inquiring minds would like to know.

    13) Early Thursday morning I’m sound asleep when I hear these very loud noises just outside my bedroom window. Some kind of machinery, lot of people talking. Awesome.

    Turns out the nice lady across the street was getting her driveway resurfaced. At 8:06am.

    Three trucks, some kind of a steamroller, and 4-5 guys chopping away at the old driveway, before the new surface could get put down. Lot of loud noises, not a lot of sleep.

    They finished around 3:00 in the afternoon. Driveway looks nice; just wish they had done it later in the day.

    12) Wednesday, Washington Nationals intentionally walked Freddie Freeman in both the first and second inning of their 7-6 loss to the Braves. I wondered how often that happens.

    So I asked the great researcher Doug Kern on Twitter; turns out the last time that happened was in 2009, when Detroit walked Albert Pujols intentionally in both the 1st/2nd innings.

    11) Hello friends, must be quite a week for Jim Nantz; college basketball national title game on Monday night, then off to Augusta for The Masters all weekend. Pretty good week.

    I am told his backyard has a par-3 hole in it, but when is the guy ever home? He does NFL in the fall, golf in spring/summer, college basketball all winter. Its good to be him.

    10) Mets 3, Marlins 2— Mets had bases loaded, two outs in 2-2 game, bottom of 9th, Miami pitcher throws a strike, Michael Conforto sticks his elbow out, lets the ball hit it and the Mets walk off with a controversial win.

    None of the umpires had the onions to say Conforto let the ball hit him; Mets’ TV guys Keith Hernandez/Ron Darling even said he did. Play isn’t reviewable, which is embarrassing. Rule needs to be changed.

    9) White Sox 6, Royals 0— Complete game for Lance Lynn, on 111 pitches. First CG of the young season; Chicago’s bullpen has been dismal so far- Tony LaRussa had to be glad to see this.

    8) Shohei Ohtani won’t make his next start Sunday against Toronto; he has a blister on his pitching hand. Ohtani went 1-5 as the Angels’ DH Thursday night; he is hitting .280.

    7) In 1969, when MLB first went to divisional play, they also added four expansion teams that year- Padres, Royals, Expos, Seattle Pilots. All four expansion teams won their first game that season. Expos are the Washington Nationals now; Pilots are the Milwaukee Brewers.

    6) Rory Mcilroy shot +4 (76) in the first round of The Masters Thursday; not only that, on the 7th hole, he hit a shot that struck his dad on the leg. Not good.

    5) Read Thursday that actor Don Johnson is re-booting his old TV show Nash Bridges for a run on USA Network, not sure if it is one movie or if it’ll be a series again. Nash Bridges ran on CBS from 1996-2001; Johnson played a San Francisco cop whose partner was played by Cheech Marin, who is also returning for the re-boot.

    4) G-League’s Erie BayHawks are moving to Birmingham, AL next season.

    3) Arizona State has already poached transfers this spring from Toledo, Boston College, Robert Morris; the kid from Toledo is Marreon Jackson- he scored 18.1 ppg, grabbed 6.1 rpg and dished out 5.9 assists/game. He is expected to be a big help for the Sun Devils, who had four players transfer out of Tempe after the season.

    2) UCLA basketball coach Mick Cronin parlayed his Bruins’ run to the Final Four into a two-year contract extension.

    1) Thursday would’ve been Catfish Hunter’s 75th birthday; he passed away in 1999, at age 53.

    James Augustus Hunter was my boyhood hero; on his rookie baseball card, in 1965, they spelled his name wrong on the back (Tim, not Jim) and when 5-year old me saw that, I adopted him as my favorite player, prompting strange looks from my dad. In 1965, not many kids in upstate New York rooted for the Kansas City A’s.

    Catfish Hunter won 233 career games, nine of them in the postseason; he threw a perfect game in 1968, and knocked in three of the four runs the A’s scored that game. He won five World Series rings and won inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1987.

    Quote of the Day
    “That was the one thing I didn’t want to break, the superstition of it. I didn’t want to have to go use the bathroom in the middle of a start.”
    San Diego’s Joe Musgrove, who apparently drank 12 bottles of water during his no-hitter

    Saturday’s quiz
    Joe Musgrove is a life-long Padres’ fan who wears #44 to honor which former San Diego pitcher?

    Friday’s quiz
    NBA’s Rockets were an expansion team in 1967; they played their first four seasons in San Diego, before moving to Houston.

    Thursday’s quiz
    Andrew Dice Clay played Lady Gaga’s father in A Star is Born.

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

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

    13) Padres 3, Texas 0:
    — Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter for San Diego.
    — Padres have played 8,206 games; this was their first no-hitter.
    — San Diego has thrown 30 one-hitters, been no-hit 10 times themselves.
    — Only Texas baserunner was a hit batsman.
    — Musgrove grew up in San Diego, is a lifelong Padre fan.

    12) Way back when, July 21, 1970; Padres were playing the Mets at home. San Diego’s 2nd year in the major leagues. Clay Kirby was throwing a no-hitter through 8 innings, but San Diego still trailed 1-0; they pinch-hit for Kirby in the bottom of the 8th (future Toronto manager Cito Gaston was the pinch-hitter).

    The relief pitcher gave up two runs in the top of the 9th, Padres lost 3-0, but 51 years later, they finally get their first no-hitter.

    11) Victor Caratini was San Diego’s catcher last night.

    Last season, there were two no-hitters in the major leagues, Lucas Giolito for the White Sox, Alec Mills for the Cubs.

    Catcher for Alec Mills’ no-hitter? Victor Caratini.

    10) Seattle got four outs from newly acquired P James Paxton this season, before his arm blew out and now he needs Tommy John surgery and is out for the next year-plus.

    9) 41-year old Rich Hill pitches for Tampa Bay: he’s had an interesting career:

    2005-08— 18-17, 4.37 in 64 games (54 starts) for the Cubs.
    2009— 3-3, 7.80 in 14 games (13 starts) for Baltimore
    2010-12— allowed four runs in 31.2 total IP in relief, for Boston.
    2013— allowed 30 runs in 38.2 IP in 63 relief stints for Cleveland.

    2014— faced four batters for the Angels, didn’t get any of them out
    2014— allowed one run in 5.1 IP in 14 relief stints for Bronx.
    2015— 2-1, 1.55 in four starts for Boston
    2016— 9-3, 2.25 in 14 starts for the A’s

    2016-19— 30-16, 3.16 in 68 starts for the Dodgers
    2020— 2-2, 3.03 in eight starts for Minnesota.
    2021— Now he pitches for Tampa Bay. Quite a career.

    8) Tejay Antone is a relief pitcher for the Reds; his father played football at Oklahoma, was on the Sooners’ 1975 national title team.

    7) Cincinnati Bearcats fired basketball coach John Brannen Friday; this season a lot of players complained about the coach, some of them transferred and when you go 12-11 at a school that is used to winning, people aren’t very loyal.

    Brannen went 32-21 in two years at Cincinnati, after going 81-51 in four years at Northern Kentucky.

    I read a fairly long article about the situation, which didn’t name any specific complaints that the players had, other than Brannen had rules about what players could/couldn’t wear at team functions— stuff like that appears to have turned the players against him.

    This season was probably lot harder on the players than we realize— they were basically alone all the time, even when they ate. Tensions ran high; apparently at Cincinnati, they boiled over.

    6) Clippers’ defensive stalwart Patrick Beverley broke a bone in his left hand, had surgery on it, is out a minimum of 3-4 weeks.

    5) Duncan Robinson is in his third year in the NBA, scoring 13.1 ppg for Miami; he’s scored 12.2 ppg in his pro career, is a career 42.5% shooter behind the arc. Not bad for a kid who played his freshman year of college at Division III Williams College.

    He transferred from Williams to Michigan after one year; this almost never happens. D-3 basketball is good quality, but there is generally a huge gap in size/athletic ability between those levels. Kids in Division III are paying to go to college, plus they play ball.

    Robinson actually scores more now than he did in college; he scored 9.3 ppg in three years at Michigan. Shooting is at a premium in the NBA, especially 6-7 guys who can shoot.

    4) Hawks 120, Bulls 108:
    — Chicago’s Zach LaVine scored 39 points in first half, but Chicago’s whole team was outscored 67-42 in the second half.
    — Much-improved Atlanta has spurted since hiring Nate McMillan as its coach; they’re 28-25 and are the #5-seed in the East.

    3) Dodgers 1, Nationals 0— Justin Turner’s 6th-inning homer was the only run, as LA won its home opener, and got its World Series rings, which are very large.

    2) Angels 7, Toronto 1— Shohei Ohtani knocked in four runs for the 6-2 Angels.

    1) A’s 6, Houston 2— Sean Manaea pitched six stellar innings, as Oakland got a much-needed win. Lowrie, Olson, Canha homered for the A’s.

    Sunday’s Den: Wrapping up a sports Saturday

    13) This is very random, because it is 2:50am and my mind is wandering, but think back to a Giants-Eagles game in 1978, November 19 to be exact.

    Giants were 5-6, Eagles 6-5, both teams fighting to become playoff contenders. Giants led 14-0 early, 17-6 after three quarters- they led 17-13 and were killing the clock when QB Joe Pisarcik tried to handoff to a running back, but the exchange was fumbled, the Eagles ran the fumble in for the game-winning TD that propelled them to their first playoff game in 18 years.

    This game was unusually relevant for many reasons:

    — Teams didn’t take a knee back then; this game started teams taking a knee.
    — This was the first of four straight playoff years for the Eagles; they won the NFC in 1980.
    — Eagles’ DB who scored the winning TD? Herman Edwards.
    — Guy who coached the Giants that day? John McVay, Sean McVay’s grandfather.

    — John McVay was fired after that season, replaced by Ray Perkins. Perkins coached the Giants for four years, then replaced Bear Bryant as the coach at Alabama.
    — Eagles’ coach that day was Dick Vermeil, who had gone 9-19 his first two years in Philly; this game was the turning point for his program.
    — Vermeil left the Eagles after the ’82 season, went on TV for 14 years, then returned to the NFL with the Rams in 1997— he won the Super Bowl there, in his third season as head coach.

    You just wonder how many careers would’ve been different had that fumble never happened.

    Major league leaders after nine days:
    12) batting average:
    .556— Yermin Mercedes, CWS
    .471— Ryan Zimmerman, Wsh
    .462— Ketel Marte, Ariz
    .458— Nelson Crux, Minn

    11) runs scored:
    11— Jose Altuve, Hst
    10— Mark Canha, A’s
    9— Castellanos, Moustakas, Senzel, all on the Reds
    8— Mike Trout LAA, Garrett Hampson Colo, Adam Eaton CWS

    10) RBI’s::
    14— Tyler Naquin Cin/Nate Lowe Tex
    12— JD Martinez Bos
    11— Kyle Tucker Hst, Jonathan India Cin

    9) Mike Trout has been on base 22 of 39 times this season; he’s already walked 10 times.

    8) Tampa Bay 4, New York 0— Why does Aaron Hicks bat third? He isn’t a good hitter.

    — he’s a career .234 hitter, .331 OB%. For his CAREER
    — he’s hitting .147 this year.
    — He’s hit more than 15 homers once in his career.
    — You put this guy between Judge and Stanton in the lineup? Why?

    7) Arizona 8, Cincinnati 3— Reds are fun to watch; they have some guys who can hit, not sure how good their infield defense is. Suarez should be playing third. They have lot of outfielders; not sure what happens when Akiyama comes off the IL.

    6) Manager AJ Hinch got suspended for a year because of the Astros’ cheating thing, then he went to Detroit— the Astros didn’t hire him back after his suspension.

    Alex Cora got suspended for a year for the same thing, but the Red Sox brought him back as manager after the suspension was up. Whats the difference?

    5) Alex Rodriguez and billionaire Marc Lore are teaming up to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA; Mr Lore used to be the CEO of Walmart eCommerce.

    4) Candidate for Bad Beat of the Week: If you had A-Rod’s Timberwolves (+8.5) Friday night, you went to bed a bit queasy- they lost 145-136, in overtime to the Celtics in Boston.

    3) Colorado Rockies’ OF Raimel Tapia walked Saturday, his first walk in his last 131 at-bats, which may explain why he got dropped from leadoff to the 6-spot in the order Saturday.

    Tapia is hitting .258 this year, with a .281 on-base %age. That ain’t good enough to bat leadoff.

    2) Marlins 3, Mets 0— Jacob deGrom has allowed one run in 14 IP this season, striking out 21 guys, but he doesn’t have a win, because the Mets usually don’t hit when he pitches. Guy is the best pitcher in baseball, with a 2.75 ERA, 1.05 WHIP in 184 career starts, but his record is only 70-51.

    1) Happy 85th birthday to the great football coach John Madden, who became way more famous later on, as a TV analyst/pitch man. Had the pleasure of meeting coach Madden in St Louis in 1995, after a Rams’ game; good guy, very big guy, pretty much like he seems on TV.

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

    Monday’s Den: Wrapping up a sports weekend…….

    13) Phillies 7, Braves 6— Brutal non-reversal by the replay guys in New York City, as Phillies scored winning run in top of the 9th. Replays clearly showed Alec Bohm never touched the plate when he slid, but after a review, the safe call wasn’t overturned. Not good.

    They need to announce, before the game, who the replay umpires are in NYC, make them more accountable. Only time I’ve heard it spoken during a game was Gary Cohen did it on a Mets’ game once.

    12) Red Sox 14, Orioles 9:
    — JD Martinez hit three homers, Rafael Devers hit two; Boston has won six in a row, after the Orioles swept them in Fenway to start the season.

    11) Royals 4, White Sox 3 (10):
    — Loss snaps Chicago’s 17-game win streak against lefty starting pitchers, one short of the record.
    — Carlos Santana tied the game with a 9th-inning homer.

    10) Arizona 7, Cincinnati 0:
    — Luke Weaver had a no-hitter thru six innings.
    — Eduardo Escobar has homered in four straight games.

    9) In the major leagues, the home team controls whether a game starts or not; once the game starts, then the umpires run things.

    Mets decided that it was OK to start their game Sunday, but it started pouring a few minutes later and the umpires stopped the game, which was later postponed, after only nine pitches.

    Marcus Stroman is the Mets’ 2nd-best pitcher; he threw nine pitches, and now won’t pitch again until this weekend in Denver. This isn’t a good way to run a major league franchise.

    For what it is worth, the game will be picked up from the spot where it stopped.

    8) Seattle 8, Minnesota 6:
    — Twins led 6-0 after five innings; Twins starter Matt Shoemaker got tossed in the 6th inning, for arguing balls/strikes while a batter who had homered off him circled the bases.
    — Kyle Seager hit a 3-run homer in the ninth inning for the dramatic comeback win.

    7) Baseball injuries:
    — Dodgers put OF Cody Bellinger (calf) on IL
    — Detroit put 1B Miguel Cabrera (biceps) on IL
    — Angels lost OF Dexter Fowler (torn ACL) for the year.

    6) White Sox DH Yermin Mercedes has 29 big league at-bats, but his batting gloves are already headed to the Hall of Fame. Mercedes had hits in his first eight AB’s this season, which is why his batting gloves will be in Cooperstown soon.

    5) It is surprising how few major league catchers there are who can hit.

    4) A’s/Astros had Sunday scheduled off; vert strange not to watch the A’s on a Sunday.

    3) Hofstra named former NBA guard/Hofstra alum Speedy Claxton its new basketball coach; he’s been an assistant at Hofstra since 2013. Claxton played in the NBA for nine years.

    2) Portland big guy Enes Kanter had 24 points, 30 rebounds in the Blazers’ 118-103 win over Detroit Saturday night. Portland was +19 in the 37:00 he played, -4 in the 11:00 he sat out.

    1) Random but fairly amazing fact:
    — Since 1969, Pittsburgh Steelers have had three head coaches. Three.
    — Since 2004, Cleveland Browns have had eleven head coaches.

    Quote of the Day
    “[Doug Pederson] was ridiculed and criticized for every decision. If you won by three, it wasn’t enough. If you lost on a last-second field goal, you’re the worst coach in history.”
    An unnamed source, telling The Athletic how the Eagles’ front office gave Doug Peterson a hard time during his tenure as head coach

    Tuesday’s quiz
    In the history of the NBA, who has made the most 3-point shots?

    Monday’s quiz

    Sunday’s quiz
    Alex Rodriguez began his major league career with the Seattle Mariners.

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

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

    13) Maryland passed a sports betting bill Monday; the law will allow as many as 60 online operators and 30 retail sportsbooks between casinos, professional sports stadiums, small businesses and lot of other organizations.

    They’re hoping to kick off sports betting in Maryland before football season season starts.

    12) Warriors 116, Nuggets 107:
    — Steph Curry scored 53 points, made 10-18 shots on the arc, 14-16 on foul line, even grabbed six rebounds. It is a pleasure to watch him play.

    11) Chicago Cubs have two coaches on the COVID list, including their bullpen coach; they also put three relief pitchers on the list, for contact tracing.

    10) Best fried chicken ever? Church’s Fried Chicken; I had it in South Carolina long time ago, very, very good. Church’s is also in Las Vegas; you should try it.

    9) White Sox 4, Indians 3— Chicago is only MLB team that has scored 3+ runs in all of its games this season.

    8) Ryan Odom leaves UMBC to become the new head coach at Utah State; Odom coached the only #16-seed to beat a #1-seed in the NCAA Tournament. Odom replaces Craig Smith, who bolted to in-state rival Utah.

    Ryan Odom is Dave Odom’s son; Dave Odom was Tim Duncan’s coach at Wake Forest.

    7) Eastern Michigan hired alum Stan Heath as its new basketball coach; Heath was once a rising star in coaching, going from Kent State to Arkansas, but after going 43-24 his last two years with the Razorbacks, he made the strange career move of going to South Florida, which was in the Big East at the time. It didn’t go well.

    Heath had been coaching the G-League the last few years.

    6) Richest owner in the NFL is David Tepper, who owns the Carolina Panthers; he is worth $12B, that’s billion, with a B. He is a hedge fund manager.

    Richest owner in the NBA is Steve Ballmer, who owns the Clippers; the guy is worth freakin’ $51B— can you imagine that? He used to be the CEO of Microsoft.

    Only difference their bank accounts and ours are a lot of zeroes. A whole lot of zeroes, on the left side of the decimal point.

    5) Wizards 125, Jazz 121— Russell Westbrook had 25 points, 14 rebounds, 14 assists in sparking the big upset. Game was 70-65 at the half.

    4) Patriots’ WR Julian Edelman retired from the NFL; he had 6,822 receiving yards in his career, 1,442 more in playoff games. Not bad for a guy who played QB at Kent State.

    3) Tigers 6, Astros 2— Detroit catchers hit five home runs in 58 games last year; they’ve already hit five in their first ten games this season.

    2) Reds 3, Giants 0— Bullpens at Oracle Park in San Francisco are under the bleachers in right-center field now, instead of on the field down the foul lines, the way they used to be. The home run Jesse Winker hit in the third inning wouldn’t have been a home run before this season

    1) Lot of baseball on tap today; doubleheaders in Philly, Baltimore. Marcus Stroman is starting one game for the Mets; he threw nine pitches Sunday before the game got rained out- pitching today probably gets him out of starting at Coors Field this weekend.

    Quote of the Day
    “The worst part of this approach is that it doubles the stress of the compressed schedule. Rather than playing for a playoff spot and being able to rest players as the standings become clearer, teams have to approach every game as a playoff game to either get into or stay in the top 6 since the consequences, as Luka said, are enormous. So players are playing more games and more minutes in fewer days.”
    Mark Cuban, on the NBA’s play-in playoff format

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Since the 1983-84 season, who holds the NBA record for most rebounds in one game?

    Tuesday’s quiz
    In the history of the NBA, Ray Allen has made the most 3-point shots, 2,973.

    Monday’s quiz
    When Rams’ QB Matthew Stafford was a high school QB in Texas, his team’s center was Clayton Kershaw. Now both of them are playing ball in Los Angeles.

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

    13) Dak Prescott got a 4-year, $160M contract from the Cowboys, which apparently includes a $1M incentive for winning a Super Bowl. $126M of that money is guaranteed.

    Prescott has a 42-27 career W-L record in regular season, 1-2 in playoffs; he played in only five games last season, after he broke/dislocated his ankle.

    12) Here’s something you don’t see every day; Monday night, Milwaukee Brewers brought in a relief pitcher late in their game, but turns out the guy’s name wasn’t written on the lineup card, so he couldn’t pitch, and they had to quickly get someone else warmed up to enter the game.

    You wouldn’t think stuff like that would happen in the major leagues.

    11) Players who have had 3+-homer games for three different teams:
    — Johnny Mize— StL, NYG, NYY
    — Alex Rodriguez— Sea, Tex, NYY
    — Dave Kingman— Cubs, NYM, A’s
    — Mark Teizeira— Tex, Atl, NYY
    — JD Martinez— Det, Ariz, Bos

    10) Most pitches thrown in a game this season:
    118– Johnny Cueto
    113— Shane Bieber (last night)
    112— Joe Musgrove (perfect game)
    111— Lance Lynn
    110– Trevor Bauer
    105— Johnny Cueto

    9) Longtime major league ump Joe West has been awarded $500,000 plus interest in damages in a defamation suit against former MLB catcher Paul LoDuca that was filed in October 2019.

    There was a podcast where LoDuca accused reliever Billy Wagner of bribing West to get a bigger strike zone. He accused that Wagner let West use his 1957 vintage Chevrolet to make the strike zone change when he was up at bat.

    Apparently, LoDuca lied in the podcast about how many times West has ejected him in his career; the judge who made the ruling raised the possibility that West will not be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame because of LoDuca’s statements.

    West, by the way, was one of the umpires in the replay center Sunday night, when they missed a call on the Phillies scoring the winning run on a close play at home plate in the last inning.

    8) Rangers 8, Rays 3— Texas breaks out for eight runs, after being shut out in three of their previous four games.

    7) Red Sox 4, Twins 2— Boston wins its 7th game in a row on a snowy afternoon in Minnesota. Rafael Devers has hit five homers in his last four games.

    6) Denver Nuggets’ star Jamal Murray tore his ACL, is out for the year, tough break for a Denver team that is 34-20, the #4-seed in the Western Conference.

    5) Mets 4-4, Phillies 3-0: Big day for the Metropolitans, who swept a twinbill, holding the Phils to three runs total.

    4) “I don’t know who that is. I know he’s going to be the owner. But I don’t know anything about baseball.”

    Thats Timberwolves’ star rookie Anthony Edwards, talking about baseball Hall of Famer Alex Rodriguez, who will soon be a co-owner of Minnesota’s NBA team.

    3) Former NFL running back Eddie George is the new football coach at Tennessee State; George played nine seasons in the NFL and ran for 10,441 yards, but he has never coached before.

    George played for the Tennessee Titans, where his coach was Jeff Fisher, whose son Brandon is expected to be on the Tennessee State coaching staff.

    2) Now that Chris Beard is the basketball coach at Texas, they’re going to poach players from teams all over the country. Longhorns poached kids from Utah/Kentucky on Tuesday, and also announced that Andrew Jones will be staying with the Longhorns next season.

    1) Having trouble getting used to doubleheaders being 7-inning games; a game is 2-2 in fifth inning and you forget that this is a late-inning situation. You do the same thing for 60 years, it is difficult to shift gears and think in a different way.
