8/21/13 in MLB   |   Jess   |   35135 respect

Greetings, sports fans, and happy Wednesday! With football amping up, the LLWS in full swing, and baseball giving us a better idea of who we might see in October there's all sorts of stuff going on in the sports world. Let's see, shall we?

Editor's Note: A great big congratulations goes out to former Mariner, current Yankee Ichiro on his 4,000th hit. Wow!

The MLB has handed down a five-game suspension for Dempster on the A-Rod beaning, but is it enough?.....it's official - Pujols is done for the season.....Now that preseason is giving us some idea of what to expect, the Broncos are the biggest favorites in the NFL Week 1 Lines.....Michael Vick has been named Eagles' starter.....and Jeff Fisher has named a starting RB in St. Louis.....Is Dez Bryant's thumb injury more serious than he's letting on?.....Von Miller's suspension upped to 6 games.....need a little more help with your fantasy football draft?.....what's going on with this new Redskins souvenir shirt?.....Looks like the Sharks have some sweet new jerseys.....speaking of shirts and jerseys, check out this NBA team's new look.....Think Johnny Football can win another Heisman?.....

And here's today's schedule - as always, all times eastern.

Congrats to Ichiro.

Chris Davis hit #46. Ball went out to Eutaw Street and didn't miss the warehouse by that much.

It's the little things.

Me neither, but it's scary how into it people around here and on my twitter feed are. It doesn't help that we're Mariners fans, and the little Washington dudes are giving us more to cheer about right now, I suppose.
