You simply can't play sports that involve running or excessive movement and exertion in the desert. Doing so is reckless and dangerous. I was slightly concerned about Murray and Djokovic at the Wimbledon final, and that was in London.

I bet the Yankees front office is hoping he gets banned for life, that way they get to not pay the rest of his contract. I hate the yankees, but I hate Arod even more so I hope the same.

Going to the Pirates/Cardinals doubleheader tomorrow. First time at PNC and first game in almost 20 years for me. Pretty excited.

Nice! It's a great venue and that should be a great matchup. I'm hoping to catch them at PNC when I'm back in PA next month.

A Follow-up on the A-Roid thing.

The office is looking to suspend him under CBA rules, not PED rules.

A couple of responses to topics and a Tribe note.

I'm very happy that the tribe picked up Giambi. He doesn't hit well, but he's had several clutch hits this season. He only came because Francona was willing to tutor him to be a coach / manager, and many of the younger guys on the team say he is a great source of knowledge in the clubhouse, and he's been great to have around. When you are building to make a team a contender, sometimes, you need that grizzled veteran presence to help keep things level headed. And honestly? I had forgotten that he was a PED user until my 16 y/o brought it up. I had forgotten. It's amazing what you can forget when it's not shoved in your face every day.

On the Rays? Man, I love that team. I love that they prove that you don't need a 100+M payroll to compete. I love that Maddon as a manager. What a great guy. And Thank you to the Ump last night for giving them first place again.

On the Bucs, My son and I are rooting for them. I'm not a fan of them, but I like HUrdle as a manager. Every time I hear him talk, He makes me like him more. I'll be rooting for them, right up until they play the rays or the tribe.

As far as A-Rod is concerned, if he REALLY did tamper with the biogenesis case by trying to intimidate witnesses, and purchase documents to keep them away from them, I hope to god that they throw the book at him. Crush him underfoot, ban him for life. If Rose can be banned for Gambling, never to see the inside of the Hall as a member, I don't want A-Rod anywhere near that place.

PNC Park is fucking beautiful and our seats were amazing. Oh yeah and walking off game 1 and absolutely crushing them in game 2 was good too.

People behind me were all over that home plate ump after Martin didn't go after that ball letting the runner reach second. He should have went after the ball regardless but man we got fired up after AJ started talking shit after the next pitch.

That story is rubbish frankly. It was 40-41 degrees Celsius or 106 to 108 degrees Farenheit when Christian took the field and he only played 20 minutes. This was not a heat-related incident. I grew up in Arizona and we'd regularly play soccer and football games in at least that and I'm not a world class athlete.

Let's look at it this way, he was a Latin American born soccer player playing in the Mexican league so he's already been heat acclimated.

This is tragic for his family and soccer fans throughout the world as Chucho was a bright and captivating player to watch.

Apparently, he had a pain-induced heart attacked caused from a burst appendix/peritonitis. He did play the day before he died, so...

Damn your Indians for keeping up with the Royals! We can't be the surprise of the season with both you and the Tigers winning games the same time we have a 9 game winning streak! :)

A-Rod needs to just go away, forever. I sincerely doubt he's even vaguely clean on any aspect of the Biogenesis case.
