Melvin Upton will complement' Blue Jays lineup, Atkins says

Not really that newsworthy a transaction, but I texted a friend this morning to pass along the news, and Autocorrect changed "Upton" to "Putin" twice.

Any reason to be worried?

tommy: Your link isn't working, but I'm going to assume it's news that Goins went on the DL.

Indeed, that's what it was (supposed to be).

The last batter Goins faces, he induces a double play and he walks off the mound a hero for life. He pitched a scoreless inning.

Penguins claim fourth Stanley Cup with 3-1 win over Sharks

I thought Kessel would've been a great choice for the Conn Smythe, but according to my more stats oriented friends, Sid was a fine selexction.
As a Maple Leafs fan, I'm thrilled for Phil.

I find myself watching the Dodgers & Atlanta game for no particular reason, other than it came on after the Blue Jays & Red Sox tilt. Vin Scully, man, the best ever. Among other topics covered during this 12-5 mismatch (B 8) are 1 man bands and dead horses in the road.

Sit there and take it

Take what, a hard slide that caused no injury?

My thought would be: Yes.
Unless of course, you're still hurt deep in your soul because
the big bad man hit a home run 7 months prior.

One action that has been overlooked in this entire situation is that Matt Bush stuck around after he hit Bautista.

That's something, I guess.

Punching someone isn't that dirty in a sport that allows brawls

Where on the dirty scale does throwing at a runner's head fall?

It seems Odor intentionally (only he knows for sure) submarined the throw to 1st, barely missing Bautista's head.
