It's hard to imagine a more disheartening story for the world of baseball. Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun, just named the National League's Most Valuable Player, failed a drug test in October and could be...

ESPN's Steve Berthiaume seems to think so. Axford has already notched 31 saves this season and would seem to be on pace to break Francisco Cordero's season record of 44 saves, which he did in 2007. Axford had a rough April and his ERA was near 9. He blew 2 of 5 saves early and things were looking pretty bleak. Since then, he's set a team record of 27 straight saves and lowered his ERA to about ...

ESPN announced the Juergen Klinsman will be one of their analysts for the World Cup this summer. In general, soccer announcers and analysts here in the states are sub-par. Former players are trotted through a revolving door and ESPN has had a hard time finding one who's not only articulate, but able to provide insight. Klinsman won the 1990 WC with Germany and coached the team in 2006's tour...

Ed Werner on SportsCenter was talking about Favre looking into surgery for a torn biceps muscle and said that Favre didn't want to do the surgery because he didn't want to go through the 3-6 weeks of rehab. 3-6 weeks!!!! That's a long time, you know? I mean, a month to be pain free for the rest of your life - that's a lot of commitment....

The Fairly Detached Observers

Pro sports have no off-seasons, just times when they suspend the games to get to the really important stuff—deciding who’ll get paid how much by whom. Just as fans are getting focused on baseball, the NFL power-sweeps into the picture this weekend with the two-day extravaganza of its annual player draft. The...

Read this on ESPN (actually saw the link on Twitter) and it's about a game between DeKalb (Ill.) High School and Milwaukee Madison.One of the Madison players had just lost his mother and wasn't planning on playing. He showed up late to the game, having decided to play. He wasn't on the scorebooks because no one expected him to be there, so if he played, the team would have to take a technical.The ...

In the first installment of his casual, out-of-nowhere sports blog on ESPN.com, "commercially successful rapper and major sports fan" Lil Wayne weighs in on football, writing of this football season that: "As a Packer fan, it's been pretty good so far. Aaron Rodgers has been wonderful, man. He's handled everything, and way more than just the football part. Of course it helps the Jet...

Ok, on BB Tonight they were talking about our game just now and how baserunning mistakes were a big issue and that we're leaving the Cards in the game instead of blowing this wide open. They pointed out the first inning in which Rickie hit the double and never looked over to the third base coach, thereby ending up on second instead of third. He allowed the SS to deke him. They also b...

I love when the lowly Brewers get big time attention. It happens so rarely. This week's ESPN The Magazine includes lots of Brewers mentions: In their Big Ten, #3 says "Brewers and Cubs load up to win now. So if the world does come to an end this October, we'll know why." and includes a big picture of CC pitching. ___ In Mike & Mike's Page 2 section called The Big Question...

On this afternoon's SportsCenter: Scott Van Pelt:"What I wouldn't do to be in Milwaukee today, raise a double fister of Miller's and extend Summerfest an extra day." Michele Tofoya : "After a hardy burp just sit back and watch first CC Sabathia get traded to the Brewers, then Richard Jefferson get introduced to the Bucks, and the likelyhood that Brett Favre will do something...
