7/29/13 in MLB   |   Jess   |   35138 respect

Kind of a bleak sports day today, with only nine baseball games, a bit of a soccer break, some golf and tennis, and not much else. Not to worry though, sports fans! We had a big weekend, and don't forget...the NFL is gearing up! Let's take a look at our crazy weekend...

Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Lineup 7/29/13First off, let's take a look at how baseball went over the weekend with Friday and Saturday recaps....the Yankees bring back Alfonso Soriano, which  makes sense, but also shows how much trouble in which the team finds itself....bad news for the already underachieving Angels: Albert Pujols is placed on the DL....the Marlins can't catch a break; player abuse allegations lead to resignation of hitting coach Tino Martinez....should we all just forgive and forget A-Rod's actions?....one of the most reckless players in MLB history calls Bryce Harper reckless - but does he have a point?....my personal fave story of the weekend: David Ortiz loses his mind....don't miss this week's MLB Power Rankings....a big MMA fight headlined our weekend, with UFC on Fox 8....NFL training camp = early season injuries....and early season overreactions....with the season ending injury of Pitta, Ravens sign Visanthe Shiancoe....might we see 49ers TE Vernon Davis on both sides of the ball this year?....Brian Westbrook compares himself and McNabb to Jordan and Pippen....and it's never too early for BCS Title Game odds!

On the slate today (all times eastern)...
