Finally ...




Yes. Vernon. Wells.

Last night marked the first time Wells homered and doubled in the same game this season. About bloody time, yo.

The performance was strong enough to send the Vernon Wells Hatred Advisory System spiralling down to ELEVATED. Keep the columns coming, Jerry Crasnick.

And how about Scott Richmond? What a Canadian ...


A goal worth $300 grand

Also falling in the "about bloody time" category, Pablo Vitti scored for Toronto FC. Seriously. Vitti. He scored. It's a fucking miracle.

Half the MLS season is through, and TFC sits a point out of first place in the East.

Yep: playoffs!1 ...


So ends the wait

It's NBA draft day. The folks at Raptors Republic, RaptorBlog, and Dino Nation Blog have got you covered.

I believe in Bryan Colangelo.

Scott Richmond is good at being a Canadian. Also good at being a pitcher.

Don't hate, appreciate.

Anyone else see the Wells, Hill, Scoots new celebration? Only saw it for a split second, looked like they were going to jump and then Wells parted them with his arms like Moses.

A two-level bump in one day. That was a great response by VW. Where would another multiple XBH game put him?

@ infieldfly: Richmond's had one helluva season. Love that guy.

@ dave: I haven't seen the celebration, but I am most certainly intrigued.

@ Qjays: I don't know where another multiple XBH game might put him. But I hope we find out.

You guys are killing me. The first thing I do now when I look at the box scores is go to the Toronto game to see what Wells is doing. What have you done to me?

I rode out Vernon's slump on my fantasy baseball team for weeks... then I sat him last night. Faaaack.

Dave, I saw that new celebration. It was weird .. anti-climactic if you will.

I like this new Vernon! 2 home runs in four games!
