Dave’s Free Play, Sunday 4/6/14

It really doesn't get much better than what we witnessed last night in college basketball.

This was also the type of game that blows up the myth about legali... More

That's why I really like that they put the challenge system in ... More

Some guys are simply just not very lucky. We're one full day into the baseball season, and two of the regular DL denizens are already injured. Jose Reyes managed one AB for the Blue Jays before exiting with what for him has been a familiar problem. Reyes is already off to the disabled list and the Jays are sadly looking as though they're a good bet to ... More
