Thursday's Headliners

USA Bball wins again, this time a 103-58 victory over Senegal. Chris Bosh dunked everything in sight and finished with 20 points. The USA plays Andrew Bogut and Australia next. The game is on Sunday looks like it will be in the middle of the night for those of us on the East Coast. For those of you who haven't been able to watch yet, ESPN2 seems to be picking up some games for replay and NBA TV has been also.

Miguel Cabrera and Joe Crede each hit their 100th home run yesterday. Crede is 28, but Cabrera is just 23. Frank Thomas hit #475, imagine if he had not suffered all those injuries.

Julio Franco turned 48 yesterday. He is the oldest player to: hit a home run, hit 2 home runs in a game, hit a grand slam, steal 2 bases in a game. There were a couple other records of oldness he held also, but I don't recall.

The Phillies continue an improbable run at the wild card, closing the gap on Cincinnati to 1.5 games. If they win the wild card, is Ryan Howard the NL MVP? More on the MVP situations next week.

The Royals (ok you know this is going to be bad) scored 10 runs in the first inning last night...only to lose 15-13 to the Indians. Yeah, that bad.

Action Dirk (pictured, right- at LegoLand) scored 47 points and grabbed 16 boards in Germany's 3 OT win over...Angola.
