Summary:

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people affected by the tragedy at the Boston Marathon. We offer this episode of sports talk as a temporary distraction from the horrors that took place on April 15, 2013.

 

Hosts: Mike KresicTom Kresic

Running Time: 38:25

 

1Q: Trouble at Pilot Flying J

  • The FBI and IRS have secured the HeadQuarters of Jimmy Haslam’s Pilot Flying J as part of an ongoing investigation.

  • Remember when we thought the Browns’ ownership change would stop making us look like the laughing stock of the NFL?

  • Criticism over lack of spending on Free Agents, choices for President (Banner) and GM (Lombardi) had already taken some of the shine off the new ownership.

  • Too early to speculate but we should know more in the next few days.

  • Oh, yeah. The NFL Draft is next week.

 

2Q: Another strong finish at the Masters

  • Jason Day bogeyed 16 and 17, giving up his share of the lead with Adam Scott.

  • Angel Cabrera forced a tie with a great putt on 17.

  • Scott and Cabrera ended up tied and had VERY similar shots on the 1st playoff.

  • Cabrera missed a chance for birdie by an inch on the 2nd playoff hole and Scott sank his from further out to get the green jacket.

  • Woods controversy with his drop on 15 on Friday. Should have been disqualified but they invoked a new rule that allowed them to keep him around. How convenient!


3Q: Indians off and running

  • Masterson off to a good start with a 3-0 record.

  • Mark Reynolds has been showing some power with 5 HRs already including Saturday’s grand slam in a 9-4 win.

  • Catchers are hurting: Carlos Santana & Lou Marson (neck strain / 15day DL) have already both missed games with injuries, forcing Yan Gomes and Omir Santos to be called up.

  • Michael Bourn slid into first on Sunday and got spiked, forcing him out of the game with a laceration on his right hand.

  • Using a lot of starters already. Carlos Carrasco hit a batter in his first game back from injury and suspension. Trevor Bauer was wild in his forced first start. Corey Kluber sent to minors. Scott Kazmir on the DL.

  • Games Tuesday and Wednesday against the Yankees were rained out.

  • Host Boston for 3 games starting TUES. Then off to Houston for 3 games.

 

4Q: Cavs winding down

  • If Lakers make the 8th seed in the playoffs, the Cavs get their pick (15th?). But LA will have to do it without Kobe Bryant (ACL Tear). Utah is on their tails.

  • If Lakers miss the playoffs, we get Miami’s pick (30th).

  • Our own pick will either be 3rd or 4th (for ping pong balls) depending on the final standings.

  • Do you keep Byron Scott? What about GM Chris Grant?

  • No real signs of improvement this year. If that was by design to get a higher pick, then you can’t fire the coach, can you?
