Sometimes you just can’t make this stuff up… As if it was an updated scene from the Tom Hanks baseball movie  A League of Their Own (movie link)- You have Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores having an on-filed weepy moment when he learned that he may be heading to Milwaukee.  I can get that.  Who wants to go to Milwaukee when you are on the New York Mets?? Come’on!   Flores had been with the team since he started playing professionally at the age of 16, almost 8 years ago.  Still, there’s No Crying in Baseball!

Pro Golfer Tiger Woods is still in the game – Ranked 266th in the world. Oh how far the mighty have fallen!

Junior Seau committed suicide and blamed it on his head concussions.  Hoping his death would spark changes in how players ijuries are dealt with after they retire.
