Well it only took 1 at-bat for Jose Reyes to suffer a hamstring injury, as the Blue Jays shortstop left the game in the first inning after his first at-bat. Reyes has had a history of hamstring injuries so this is not something to sweep under the rug. There is good chance that the Blue Jays place Reyes on the DL and let his hamstring heal, rather than let him play through the injury...

True centers are hard to come by nowadays in the NBA, so when you have the opportunity to take one, most NBA teams will jump on the opportunity. Judging by the amount of hype Embiid is getting on his draft stock, you'd think that when you looked at his numbers he would be averaging something ridiculous like 20 points and 12 rebounds. When in fact, Embiid hasn't scored 20...

NBA Mock Draft - Sweet 16 Edition

If there is anything that the NCAA tournament has shown us, it is that Andrew Wiggins is not NBA ready.  Sure against Eastern Kentucky he lead the Jayhawks with 19 points with 4 rebounds and 2 blocks.  But against a much tougher Stanford opponent, the Freshman was just 1-6 from the field for just 4 points and missed two 3s that Stanford let him shoot.  It is not his fault Kansas...

Will Michael Pineda Be The Yankees Ace?

Back in 2011 during his only season in the big leagues, it looked like Michael Pineda was the next big thing in baseball. Pitching for a 67-95 Seattle Mariners team, Pineda managed to go 9-10 with a 3.74 ERA. In 171 innings pitched, Pineda struck out 173 batters and only allowed 133 hits.
