Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread 9/14/13Every team in baseball has about 15 games left, so every contest left takes on more importance at the races head towards their conclusions. Most of the games on today's schedule affect the races in some way (well, not that Marlins-Mets doubleheader, but oh well). The other big sporting event of the day is the Mayweather-Canelo fight. Both are undefeated, and some consider this the best chance that Mayweather would actually lose. The fight is called The One. I'm holding out for a fight called The Bout to Knock the Other Guy Out.

Here is today’s schedule. All times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise indicated. Personal picks are in bold.
