Anytime there's any issue but the opposite of that. Like the opposite your -- around you know the opposite of Jim Brown is Bill Russell who Bill Russell. Like every once in awhile he just shows up to put people in their place which is what Jim Brown's trying to do. But Jim Brown usually fails fail any that if it weren't exactly what the issue memorable where is where is Bill Russell just comes in laying the smackdown which -- talking about LeBron can -- here. Ash up to -- really bad at this he's the complete -- come off so you're angry. Too angry yeah I mean it's too angry at these images like these that the the only guy he's the only black live in America you don't want. If united blackened Joe Brown. You know I really black -- I hate that what Tiger Woods you -- him to Kobe Bryant. You've spent time in Italy. There are no black people and Adelaide.

Our stance that was me as it well richter from Ricky Anderson as the sale of good things must come. Gone through me and hope. Who knows. Home. Special -- This was six years before they thought. Good to have been well Jordan's public Steve from Fall River. George Foreman. That's the answer that's I was gonna go Emmett Smith is another one at the political George Foreman Rick flair -- Shaq. Robert Parish these are all very -- ads. Really made these are all good marks can now I think. -- about Willie Mays. Or what for example it's like Willie Mays in 1973 right I guess you have to be there. I don't remember. I was looking up the numbers awhile ago. Willie Mays 1973. On base percentage was thought it was like debate. Really -- -- would say that's my guy. On base percentage -- -- like 350 really. Repeat it what it what is what is really the real story we're -- bring a couple of what was it -- was 340. Are probably next year. I was last I was last year but clearly before his on base percentage is for a -- -- to ask what it was a case of 72 Willie Willie -- with the Mets in 1972 correct. Yet but it includes 6969. Game four to -- before two on base for the -- 446. It would be for or anybody for 46 drama -- -- -- overall his OPS was eight what would you say the on base with his OBS was 840. The program that's. You take a guy that he 48 probably lead your team and -- -- -- -- I that he led that team you know PS I guess you've got to get you had to beat my Betty led that team and opium it probably did. -- -- Jeter communities who don't know -- collectors here. He has another year were sort of marred by injury I could without Roger Clemens the government -- -- Tim Tebow.

Given the recent Ray Rice suspension, many people are comparing it to Josh Gordon getting suspended for repeated drug abuse. Tim Benz doesn't think this is a fair comparison. He explains why.

We discuss the suspension of Ray Rice, and how the act he committed certainly seemed like it warranted a harsher penalty from the strict front office of Roger Goodell.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
