The Morning After


Slow night in the sports world, but here's what you missed...

Brewers 14 Indians 12: Prince Fielder hit a grand slam in the 8th inning last night to rally the NL Central-leading Brewers over the Indians 14-12 in Cleveland. Fielder's bomb gave him 6 RBI's for the game, the HR was his 16th of the season. Ryan Braun also contributed with a HR and 5 RBI's of his own. The Brewers win last night was only their 2nd in 8 games.

Criminal News: Donte Stallworth is expected to plead guilty to DUI Manslaughter charges later this week in court - the plea comes with a short jail sentence. Stallworth is charged with striking and killing a pedestrian in Miami while under the influence of alcohol.

Denver Broncos: Pro Bowl WR Brandon Marshall has requested a trade out of Denver before the start of the 2009 season. He is looking for more money after back-to-back 100 catch seasons, but his inability to stay out of trouble and his health are significant factors that need to be taken into account. The Broncos also signed WR Brandon Lloyd on Monday. Josh McDaniels is off to a hell of a start in Denver. Sucks for Dawkins.


  1. Yeah Dawkins cannot be happy. Long term McDaniels may be going in the right direction but I don't see how they can compete with San Diego this year.

    I thought McDaniels made a brilliant trade in the Cutler deal. Two 1sts, a 3rd and Orton for a 17-20 career starter. Cutler better be hoping da Bears pick up Burress because going from Marshall as a #1 to Hester being a #1 is more than a slight downgrade.

  2. Smart money is on Denver this year, after that comment

  3. Denver is better off because marshall will screw up and get his ass put in jail before the years up. he might let it rain like his boy pac man

  4. Maybe Donte's case for the reduced sentence is because he honked a the guy before he plowed him over with his vehicle. Either way complete bull shit that he gets a reduced sentence.
