Nadal Wins 10th French Open, Makes Tennis History


On clay, against Nadal, whose 10 French Open titles may only ever be beaten if he wins again next year, the indecision was deadly. But the thing that I am more proud of in my career probably is 2013.

While the Warriors' collection of talent is something the league hasn't seen before, they also had more than their fair share of luck along the way.

A quick look at the French Open


Thiem has definitely looked better this tournament, but anytime Djokovic has been pushed up against a wall this week he played incredibly, so I really can't say for sure who I think will win.

Most recently, Djokovic thumped Thiem 6-1, 6-0 in the semi-finals of the Rome Masters. Read More »

Yankees @ Angels (Judge Not)


It was his longest homer, and the catcher became the sixth Yankee to reach double digits in long balls. He drove in the Yankees' first two runs with two-out, RBI singles in the third and fifth innings. We needed it. Here's hoping he brings something similar to Oakland. First, the team perspective. Meyer gave up just three base hits (all singles) but did walk four batters while registering the nine punchouts. Read More »
