I don't think it shocks anyone that the NFL came down on the New England Patriots in the wake of "Deflate-gate". Problem is, they didn't come down hard enough.
The decision to suspend quarterback Tom Brady 4 games without pay, mostly for refusing the cooperate fully with the investigation, is mere chump change. As long as commissioner Roger Goodell is in the pocket of Pats owner Robert Kraft, he'll never throw the whole book at the Pats. A million dollar fine and the loss
The Chicago Cubs, as expected, sent top prospect Kris Bryant to minor league camp, and his next stop is likely Iowa for about 2 weeks, or so they say.
The Players Association, and Bryant's greedy agent, Scott "20 Mule Team" Boras, are crying foul.

While it's readily accepted that the Colts were totally outplayed in a 45-7 loss, the 4th blowout defeat at the hands of the Pats in the Andrew Luck era, the revelation after the game that
I realize that the voting for the post-season awards doesn't include playoffs. For Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams, that's a good thing, because he would've lost votes for a boneheaded decision in game 2 of the NLDS vs. San Francisco on Saturday night.
Let me refresh the scenario. Top 9, 2 out. Jordan Zimmermann, six days removed from a regular season-ending no-hitter vs. Miami, is working on another gem, a three hit shutout, but walked Giants rookie Joe Panik to put the
