U.S. men’s 4x100m team disqualified after illegal exchange

The U.S. mens 4x100m relay team crossed the finish line in third place Friday night, but they will not be taking home any medals. The team was disqualified after it was ruled that the first exchange between Mike Rodgers and Justin Gatlin illegally took place outside of the takeover zone. The four athletes celebrated and took a victory lap after the race, only to find out that they were disqualified when they were interviewed on NBC by Lewis Johnson. I felt like it was a clean exchange going through the zone, Gatlin told Johnson after watching a video replay.

Papbelbon Watch Moves Well Past 24-Hour 'Deadline'

Jonathan Papelbox (2007)After yesterday's disgraceful bullpen meltdown (and eventual 4-3 loss), you would think that the Red Sox would step up their pursuit of Jonathan Papelbon. And yet, well past the original 24-hour 'resolution' window, all we hear are crickets emanating from Yawkey Way. Sure, Papelbon was awful in his last few appearances for the Nationals—but what, Roenis Elías in better? Acquiring Papelbon (for cheap-to-no-money, by the way) would add depth to the ailing 'pen—something sorely needed. He's experienced, he's fearless, he's wacky, he's familiar—he's needed! Get him!

Red Sox In "Wait-And-See" Mode On Jonathan Papelbon

Lester (L); Papelbon (R)In March of 2005, I took my then 9-year old son to Red Sox Spring Training in Fort Myers—at the 'old' ballpark. At a packed BoSox Club event, the team was showcasing two young pitchers in camp—Jon Lester and Jonathan Papelbon. As we gazed at the long line to get their autographs, I abruptly decided (as Dads often do) to split the venue since—and I quote—"These two guys will probably never amount to anything." To this day, my now 20-year old son refuses to forgive me for that gaffe. Anyway, one of those guys—Papelbon—is again on the Red Sox radar. The latest...
