Game On! Sports Lineup 7/10/13

It's a summer of crazy...and baseball, of course! [Live Sports Thread]

7/10/13 in MLB   |   Jess   |   34876 respect

Greetings, sports fans! I decided to take another approach with the format of these, and include some of the latest headlines right here on FanIQ to start out our daily sports chat forum. Let's do this...

Did you see the Lions gave Matt Stafford a nice fat extension with loads of guaranteed dolla bills? I didn't catch it, but apparently the fight Saturday between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman shocked the MMA world and from what I'm hearing, there needs to be a rematch. It looks like the MLB is cracking down, suspending some players for taking PEDs.  The latest news in the NBA? It's all about the money money money...not only has a salary cap been set, but they also just handed out last season's luxury tax bill. So here's something crazy - whether you know who Anna Benson is or not, you must read this story. Apparently she's working on designing bullet proof vests...but shhh...it's top secret. You know - military and DoD stuff. So - not only is Justin Bieber a crazy bandwagon jumper, but now he's got an entire hockey team fan base pissed off at him. And to cap it all off - did Aaron Hernandez actually admit to killing Odin Lloyd?

Keep checking the FanIQ Best of the Web for more! In the meantime, we've got some games to watch. Let's take a look at today's lineup (all times eastern...)

My Mariners are in an alternate universe. Still losing, but scoring runs. Bizarre.

I understand...  It's frustrating.  But the general consensus among most fans is to cut the team a little slack.  They DID win TWO World Series' the last three years.  Not sure how much slack the fans will give however before the "lunatic fringe" starts making more appearances....

You know, I used to eat, breath and sleep baseball, but since my shoulder injury and forced retirement from playing, I just can't seem to get into watching it.  I just get too depressed :(

M's are down 4-0 tonight. They need Anna Benson to shut things down.
