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

    Saturday’s Den: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….

    13) Clippers 131, Jazz 119:
    — Utah led 72-50 at halftime.
    — LA outscored Jazz 81-47 in second half.
    — Clippers are in NBA’s Final Four for first time ever.

    12) 76ers 104, Hawks 99:
    — Game 7 is Sunday in Philadelphia.
    — Seth Curry, who has a famous brother, scored 24 for the 76ers.
    — Atlanta was 13-24 on foul line, lost by five points.

    11) Pirates 11, Indians 10— Pittsburgh is just second team in last 100 years to end a losing streak of 10+ games, by winning a game in which they allowed 10+ runs.

    ’82 Cubs were the other team, if you were wondering.

    10) There have been 15 unassisted triple plays in MLB history, last of which was in 2009, by Eric Bruntlett of the Phillies. 8 shortstops, 5 second basemen and 2 first basemen have pulled this off.

    In 1968, Washington Senators’ SS Ron Hansen pulled off an unassisted triple play; it was the first one in the majors since 1927- there wasn’t another one until 1992.

    9) I am told there have been 726 triple plays in major league history.

    8) This is just random weirdness.

    — Orioles lost their last 19 road games; their last road win was May 5, when John Means threw a no-hitter in Seattle. Means is currently on the IL.

    — Diamondbacks lost their last 23 road games; their last road win was April 25, when Madison Bumgarner threw a 7-inning no-hitter in Atlanta. Bumgarner is also currently on the IL.

    7) Guy on ESPN’s Daily Wager gave out Brewers-Rockies under 9 runs on Thursday’s show; if you’re getting paid to give out picks, preferably winning picks, why give out an under play for a game at Coors Field, especially when Brandon Woodruff is now 0-1, 9.24 in three career starts vs Colorado, and that ERA actually came down during this game, a 7-3 Colorado win???

    6) Giants’ IF Wilmer Flores’ walk-up song is the theme from the old TV show Friends; back when Flores was coming up thru the minor leagues, he learned most of his English by watching lots and lots of Friends episodes (Flores is from Venezuela). He’s not the only one either; have heard that story about a few big league ballplayers.

    5) Mets have doubleheaders today, Monday and Friday, which is probably why they hesitated to put Jason deGrom on the IL; they could use his help during this difficult time in their schedule.

    4) July is going to be a fascinating month in baseball; what teams give up and trade players, and which teams will be adding salary to try and win now?

    3) Celtics traded G Kemba Walker to Oklahoma City in an oddly-timed trade; I didn’t even know you could announce trades during the playoffs.

    Boston gets Al Horford, Moses Brown and some payroll flexibility; Walker will make $73M over the next two years, Horford $53M. There were also draft picks exchanged.

    Oklahoma City now owns 18 first round picks to use in the next seven drafts.

    2) Something to watch for in tonight’s Game 7 in the NBA: Milwaukee had 26 fast break points in Game 6, Brooklyn only 4. Can the Nets stop Milwaukee from running?

    1) If the playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL— Mets, Cubs, Giants. Wild Card: San Diego @ Dodgers
    AL— Rays, White Sox, A’s. Wild Card: Houston @ Boston

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

    Sunday’s Den: Wrapping up a sports Saturday

    13) Bucks 115, Nets 111 (OT)
    — Milwaukee wins series in seven games.
    — Last time a Game 7 went to OT? 2006, Dallas-San Antonio.
    — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 40 points for the Bucks.
    — Kevin Durant played all 53:00, scored 48 points.

    12) Durant’s performance was totally amazing; the guy tore his Achilles June 10, 2019, yet he played 47:00/game in Games 5-7 here, and at a really high level. Achilles injuries are difficult to come back from.

    11) Blue Jays 10, Orioles 7:
    — Mountcastle hit three HR’s, Mullins hit two, but Baltimore still lost.
    — Toronto scored six runs in the 9th for the comeback win.
    — Orioles’ first six hits in this game were all home runs.

    10) Dodgers 9, Arizona 3— How depressing must it be to be in the Arizona traveling party these days? They’ve lost 16 games in a row, 30 of last 32. Hard to believe any of the coaches will be back next year; those are lucrative jobs.

    Just a bad year overall for Arizona; the GM’s wife has cancer, which is way worse, obviously, than the baseball stuff, but they could use something good to happen in the desert.

    9) Walker Buehler had a no-hitter until the 8th inning of that game; there were lot of people wearing blue in Phoenix this weekend, rooting on the world champs.

    8) Padres 7, Reds 5— Joey Votto/David Bell got tossed in the first inning for arguing balls and strikes. I mean, San Diego is throwing a bullpen game and you get tossed in the first inning?

    7) Mets split a doubleheader in Washington; they host Atlanta for a twinbill on Monday, then host the Phillies for another one Friday. Three doubleheaders in seven days, with the health of star pitcher Jacob deGrom a big ???? Could be a long week in Flushing.

    6) Mariners 6, Rays 5— Tampa Bay won Tyler Glasnow’s last start Monday, but they’re 0-5 since he went on the IL with a UCL problem. Without Glasnow to anchor their rotation, they have been stretching out the starters who usually only face the opposing lineup twice a game.

    5) Statistical oddity; Milwaukee is 39-32, but they’ve given up four more runs than they’ve scored this season.

    4) Tuesday there is a big meeting about expanding the college football playoff system from four teams to 12. Too much money to be made for it not to happen, but if it does happen, apparently it won’t be until 2023. It’ll be a big deal when it happens.

    Imagine the politics inside that meeting? All those highly-paid administrators trying to get guarantees for their leagues. Lot of weasels in that room, for sure.

    3) Los Angeles Lakers fired their trainer for second time in three years; before that, the previous trainer had been there for 30+ years. Maybe they should bring him back?

    2) Cardinals-Braves are not only a day/night doubleheader today, but the night game is on ESPN; Sunday Night Baseball has a seven-inning game. No bueno.

    Braves fly to New York after and play a twinbill against the Mets Monday; that should be fun.

    1) A newspaper writer from Mississippi finished last in his fantasy football league last year; the penalty for finishing last is that you have to spend 24 consecutive hours in a Waffle House restaurant, with an hour taken off the sentence for every waffle you eat.

    I love waffles, but Waffle House waffles are large, about the size of a plate. This guy winds up downing nine waffles, spending 15 hours inside the restaurant this week.

    Some quick thoughts:
    — This guy gave Waffle House so much free publicity, he should get free waffles for a year.
    — Is it strange that they didn’t care that he sat there for 15 consecutive hours?
    — I’m curious when the last time he ate was before going to Waffle House.
    — You have to use maple syrup, right? Dry waffles might not go down well.

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

    Monday’s Den: Random stuff, and Mountain West football knowledge

    Hawks 103, 76ers 96:
    — Atlanta won despite Trae Young going 5-23 from the floor.
    — Kevin Huerter (from suburban Albany) scored 27 points.
    — Embiid scored 31 points, had 11 rebounds on a bum leg; he was a warrior in this series.

    Suns 120, Clippers 114:
    — Devin Booker scored 40 for Phoenix.
    — Clippers are down 1-0 for third series in a row.
    — Suns were +18 in the 14:00 Torrey Craig played.
    — Clippers have played every other day since June 2nd.

    Nationals 5, Mets 2:
    — Kyle Schwarber homered three times, has 5 homers in last two games.

    Brewers 7, Rockies 6:
    — Colorado hit four homers in the 6th inning, erasing a 6-0 deficit, but those were the only runs they scored. Daniel Vogelbach knocked in the winning run in the 9th inning.

    New York 2, A’s 1:
    — Game ended with Sean Murphy grounding into a triple play on a 2-0 pitch, after the first two batters of the inning had walked.

    — Shed Long hit a walk-off grand slam in 10th inning.
    — Rays lost their last six games.
    — Tampa Bay is calling up its #1 prospect Wander Franco Tuesday.

    Why do teams shift against everyone? Reds shifted against San Diego C Victor Caratini Sunday, like he was Reggie Jackson or Dave Winfield— the guy is batting .219.

    Caratini sticks his bat out, hits a soft ground ball to shortstop, but problem is, the shortstop isn’t there, because the Reds shift against everyone. Caratini is hitting .219; the over-educated imbeciles who run some of these front offices justify their existence by shifting way too much.

    Sunday’s quiz

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

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

    Mets 4, Braves 2:
    — Jacob deGrom allowed one hit in five innings, getting the win, but something is amiss with deGrom. He was lifted after throwing only 70 pitches, going thru the Braves’ order twice.

    Here are deGrom’s last six starts:
    May 25— 5 IP, 63 PT, gave up one run. Mets won 3-1.
    May 31— 6 IP, 70 PT, gave up no runs. Mets won 6-2.
    June 5— 7 IP, 85 PT, gave up no runs. Mets won 4-0.
    June 11— 6 IP, 80 PT, gave up no runs. Mets won 3-2.
    June 16— 3 IP, 37 PT, gave up no runs. Mets won 6-3
    Last nite— 5 IP, 70 PT, gave up no runs. Mets won 4-2.

    His numbers are tremendous, but they’re not extending him at all. His last four starts back in April, he threw 95-99-109-93 pitches.

    Heading into Monday’s games, four of five NL Central teams were batting under .230. Only the Cincinnati Reds are batting over .230 as a team.

    Indians 4, Cubs 0— Bottom 4th inning, Cubs have man on first, one out. Anthony Rizzo flies out to left, and the runner on first Javier Baez, forgets how many outs there and gets doubled off to end the inning. Cubs manager David Ross took Baez out of the game right there and then.

    Cleveland P Aaron Civale had a 3-0 lead with two outs in 5th, when he called the trainer out and left the game— something wrong with his right hand. No bueno for Civale or those of us who have him in fantasy leagues— he’s a dependable guy.

    Padres 6, Dodgers 2— This ended a 150-game streak of the Dodgers being favored in every game they had played since late 2019.

    If the Washington NFL team wants a nickname, I have two suggestions:
    a) Red Tails— This would come pretty close to the old name, and would honor a group of pilots from World War II. The team colors would all stay the same.
    b) Sentinels— Nickname of the Washington team from the movie The Replacements, where Gene Hackman was coach, Keanu Reeves the QB.

    Of the four teams left in the NBA playoffs, none of them has won an NBA title since Milwaukee won back in 1971, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 2nd year as a pro.

    Got my first college football magazine of the summer; here are things I learned from reading it:
    Over last five years, these teams have the worst record against the spread:
    — Bowling Green 29.2% ATS
    — Akron 30.2% ATS
    — Texas-El Paso 31.4%
    — Arizona 32.0%
    — Tennessee 35.7%

    These teams have the best record against the spread:
    — LSU 38-20-1, 65.3% ATS
    — Wyoming/Eastern Michigan, both at 64.8%
    — Buffalo, 63.9%- their coach moved on to Kansas.
    — Utah, 63.6%

    Last year was first time the Big X didn’t have have any offensive skill players drafted in the first round by the NFL.

    Since 1985, Arizona Wildcats have had one QB drafted, Nick Foles in 3rd round, 2012.

    Last year was first time in 80 years Michigan State didn’t have any players drafted.

    Bryan Harsin is the new coach at Auburn, moving in from Boise State, where he went 69-19; his defensive coordinator is Derek Mason, formerly head coach at Vanderbilt.

    There are 41 bowl games on this year’s docket; 43 were schedule last year, only 25 were played.

    College football “free agency” is now a thing; here are winners/losers for this year:
    Winners— Oklahoma, Florida State, Miami
    Losers— Nebraska, Tennessee, Virginia Tech

    Here is how Nick Saban’s teams have done the year after winning a national title:
    2004, LSU— 9-3, lost bowl game to Iowa
    2010, Alabama— 10-3, beat Michigan State in bowl
    2012, Alabama— 12-1, won national title
    2013, Alabama— 11-2, lost bowl to Oklahoma
    2016, Alabama— 14-1, lost national title game to Clemson
    2018, Alabama— 14-1, lost national title game to Clemson
    2021, Alabama— ??????

    College football coaches on the hot seat:
    — Jim Harbaugh, Michigan— He’s signed thru 2025.
    — Clay Helton, USC— Finished in top 25 three of six years.
    — Jeff Brohm, Purdue— 8-16 in his last 24 games.
    — Dino Babers, Syracuse— 6-17 last two years, after a 10-win 2018.
    — Justin Fuente, Virginia Tech— 19-18 last three years, not good enough.

    Top 5 quarterback transfers:
    — McKenzie Milton, UCF to Florida State
    — Jack Coan, Wisconsin to Notre Dame
    — Charlie Brewer, Baylor to Arizona
    — Alan Bowman, Texas Tech to Michigan
    — Tyler Shough, Oregon to Texas Tech

    Motto for modern college QB’s: If I ain’t starting, then I’ll be departing.

    They tweaked the college overtime rules; teams have to go for 2 points after TD’s starting in the 2nd overtime. If a game gets to three OT’s, they just run alternate 2-point plays until someone wins. Thats a factor if the spread is between 2-8 points.

Who will break their ribs and their noses and their necks for you, because they believe. ‘Cause you make them believe. That’s a quarterback.”

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

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

    13) Weird story broke this week, about how basketball players for the Wisconsin Badgers were unhappy with their coach last year; at one point, the seven seniors met with head coach Greg Gard and the three assistant coaches and aired their grievances.

    Here’s the thing; someone RECORDED THE WHOLE THING, and it became public, which makes the head coach look really bad. Recruiting just became a whole lot harder.

    Wisconsin had a very experienced team last year; their starting 5 was older than the starting 5 for one or two NBA teams. The pandemic created unusual circumstances, which created a lot of tension. When you don’t win as much as you think you should, sometimes that spills over.

    12) Suns 104, Clippers 103:
    — Phoenix ran great OB under play, scoring on alley-oop with 0:00.7 left.
    — Cam Payne led the Suns with 29 points.
    — Clippers are down 2-0 for third series in a row.
    — Suns’ star Devin Booker broke his nose during this game, came back and finished the game, scoring 20 points.

    11) Detroit Pistons won the NBA Draft Lottery; I always wonder what the kid who is supposed to be the #1 pick thinks when he finds out where he is probably headed. Cade Cunningham is from Texas; he needs to buy a parka or two. Detroit gets very cold in the winter.

    10) In the 7-game Hawks-76ers series, a very dramatic series, Ben Simmons took a total of three shots in the 4th quarter, none in Games 4-7. One of the more interesting parts of this summer will be if the 76ers unload Simmons or keep him.

    9) Suns’ G Chris Paul said he won’t be playing in the Olympics this summer; same thing for Kyle Lowry, who is a free agent.

    If I owned an NBA team and was paying guys $20-$30M a year (or more) to play for our team, I sure as hell wouldn’t want them playing in the freakin’ Olympics.

    8) Baseball injuries:
    — Twins’ OF Byron Buxton broke his pinky, is on the IL.
    — Mets’ P Marcus Stroman (hip) left his start early Tuesday
    — Mets’ P Joey Lucchesi will have Tommy John surgery
    — Braves’ P Max Fried (blister) went on the IL.

    7) Arizona Diamondbacks have already used 51 players this season, most of any team; Milwaukee has used 49 players. Lot of frequent flyer miles for guys going between AAA and the big leagues.

    6) Two years ago, Diamondbacks were 85-77, a pretty good team, and that was with Paul Goldschmidt already off to St Louis. Wheels have fallen off since then; they’re 21-54 this year.

    5) Sounds like the college football playoff is going to expand from four teams to 12 teams in 2023; they’re going through the process to make it happen this summer, a slow process, but there is just too much money at stake for this not to happen.

    4) Sports betting became legal in Louisiana this week, should begin by football season.

    3) Someone in California did a lab test on a Subway tuna sub, but found no tuna; not really sure what they did find, but hopefully nothing too bad. I’ve had more than my share of their subs over the years, though I get subs at Jersey Mike’s now.

    2) Doc Rivers won an NBA title coaching the Celtics in 2008, then made it to the Finals in 2010. At that point, his career playoff record was 46-40, 38-26 with Boston.

    Since then, Rivers’ playoff record is 52-54; he hasn’t been back to the Finals. Overall his playoff record is 98-94.

    1) Miami Marlins’ P Sandy Alcantara is pretty good, but his teammates don’t hit much for him:
    — Last night, Marlins’ bullpen lost game 2-1 in ninth inning.
    — His previous start, Alcantara lost 1-0 to St Louis in ninth inning. Not good.

    Quote of the Day
    “I’m still stunned sitting here that we didn’t win Game 7 at home……….look, ultimately you win or lose mostly with your players. It’s my job to get the best players, and frankly, we didn’t have quite good enough players.”
    Daryl Morey, GM of the 76ers

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

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

    13) Padres 5, Dodgers 3:
    — Dodgers get swept in San Diego for first time since 2010.
    — Padre closer Melancon got his 4th save in five days.
    — Dodgers are 7-9 in Trevor Bauer’s starts.

    12) Nationals 13, Phillies 12:
    — Phillies led 5-0 after four innings.
    — Starlin Castro’s two-run single was the game-winner.
    — Kyle Schwarber has 10 home runs in his last dozen games.

    11) Giants 9, Angels 3 (13)
    — If you had under 8 in this game, the gambling gods owe you one.
    — Teams were a combined 4-34 with RISP.
    — Mike Tauchman whiffed five times, then homered in the 13th inning.

    This game took so long that Giants’ radio guy Dave Flemming had to log off the air, in order to do the ESPN broadcast of the Dodger-Padre game. Giants’ radio finished up using the TV feed with Jon Miller doing play-by-play.

    Angels didn’t use a DH, because Ohtani pitched; P Griffin Canning played a couple innings out in left field, which isn’t normal. P Dylan Bundy pinch-hit for the Angels.

    10) Was watching a replay of Monday’s NC State-Vanderbilt game in the College World Series; Vandy P Jack Leiter threw 123 pitches, struck out 15 guys. He is going to get drafted in a couple weeks; how much wear and tear do college coaches put on their pitchers’ arms?

    Earlier this season, Leiter threw 126 pitches in his no-hitter; no one in the major leagues has thrown that many pitches in a game this year. Chances are that Leiter will never throw 126 pitches in a game the rest of his career.

    9) Former big league SS Troy Tulowitzki is a volunteer assistant coach at Texas; the Longhorns’ SS is using the glove Tulowitzki used back when he won the Gold Glove in 2010-11.

    8) Wednesday was the 104th anniversary of the ballgame when pitcher Babe Ruth walked the leadoff hitter in a game, got thrown out by the umpire, then his replacement retired 27 hitters in a row, one of the strangest games in big league history.

    I’m guessing Babe Ruth would’ve been the center of attention in our current social media era.

    7) Hawks 116, Bucks 113:
    — Trae Young scored 48 points, dished out 11 assists.
    — Hawks won despite their subs playing a combined 60:00- they were minus-38.
    — John Collins had 23 points, 15 rebounds for Atlanta.

    6) Last time the Hawks got this far along in the playoffs was six years ago, when their coach was Mike Budenholzer, who obviously is now Milwaukee’s coach.

    5) Last time the Detroit Pistons picked first in the NBA Draft was 1970; they took Bob Lanier, who scored 22.7 ppg over ten years with Detroit.

    4) Thinking back on the Suns’ last-second alley-oop the other night:
    — Devin Booker set a set screen, despite playing with a broken nose.
    — Jae Crowder threw a great pass, a truly great pass; should’ve been mentioned more.

    3) Forgot to mention this when the NFL schedule came out, but they did something really smart; three exhibition games per team, but no games on Labor Day weekend, the week before the regular season starts. Very good idea, long overdue.

    Not sure what this does to HBO’s Hard Knocks; the best episode is usually when the team makes its last cuts— will that be after Labor Day, or the week before?

    2) I’m seriously hoping MLB bans shifts next year; Manny Machado is San Diego’s 3B, but last night, he was so far out in right field, when he dove for a fly ball, he wound up on the warning track. Keeping four infielders on the infield would create more offense, and baseball claims they want more offense in their game. We’ll see.

    1) If the playoffs started today (they don’t):
    NL: Mets-Brewers-Giants. Wild Card: San Diego @ Los Angeles
    AL: Red Sox-White Sox-Astros. Wild Card: Tampa Bay @ A’s
