Odds and Ends In The World of Sports - SportsRelocation.com
We are what, almost seventy games into the MLB season, and a quick look at the injury list shows there have been 187 injured players so far this season. That seems like quite a few, don’t you think? Almost two-hundred players who are either on the 15-day disabled, the 30-day disabled, the 60-day disabled or are gone for the year. And for each injury there is a corresponding roster move, usually calling someone up from the minors to replace the injured player. Talk about some major transition!
The Miami Heat seem to be about to wrap up the NBA title with a 3-1 lead over the Oklahoma City Thunder. It looks like King James will finally have the title he has long sought. Keep an eye on the Thunder for next year, though; that’s a young team and if they keep it together they will only get better.
The NFL had nine signings this week and those signings are going to be increasing dramatically in the next month as training camps prepare to open. There should be quite a bit of shuffling with rosters in the next thirty days.
Back to baseball….the trade deadline, remember, is the end of July. Once July gets here you will see teams start to trade in an effort to make their run at the World Series.
The NHL headed off for summer vacation and already there are problems arising for the League. There are talks of a possible lockout over a new CBA proposal (sound familiar?) and the unrest of the possible sale of the Phoenix Coyotes is growing. The question of what to do about the Coyotes is becoming a national joke; one year after losing a possible buyer because of citizen complaints, another buyer, Greg Jamison, is on hold because the courts have delayed any negotiation. The NHL-owned Coyotes need a new home and a new buyer and this problem just seems to go on forever.
