The Cardinals dropped their 4th straight last night as the Cubs got the 6-4 win against the Cards. A late inning RBI single by Alfonso Soriano gave Mitchell Boggs his first loss of the year, and gave the Cubs the lead for good. This afternoon, the two teams are at it again. First pitch for the Cards is scheduled for 12:45…Kyle Loshe gets the start.
Another quick MLB note – last year a Rockies catcher, was suspended 100 games for violation of the drug testing policy and now…has had that taken away. Why? Because the arbitrator who handled his case, is the same guy who MIShandled the Braun case, screwed it up back then too. And in a total non-shock move…the MLB has fired the arbitrator. The league is saying the two cases nearly are IDENTICAL to each other and says the league and players association agreed on terminating him to be the best move.
NHL Playoff action continued last night…The Rangers shut out the Devils 3-0 in the opening game of the Eastern Conference Finals. All three New York goals came in the third.

Finally today – an 18 year old girl in Cleveland was left without a prom date when the guy she was going with bounced out a few days before….so she went on to Twitter. She asked a Cleveland Browns players named Joe Haden if HE would be her date. She is a member of this dude’s fan club, and usually shows up to all of his autograph signings and appearances so he recognized who she was….and the dude actually went through with it. On Friday – dude showed up at her house, in a three-piece suit, and drove her and her friend to the prom in his Lambo. Check out some pictures below:
