An all American day
It's June 14 and the trade rumors can officially begin. After a sweep in Kansas City the question for the Brewers is are they buyers, sellers or neither? Sure it makes sense to trade Zack Greinke by the July trading deadline but doing so would contradict the team's desire to be competitive.
The truth is with two wild card spots now available pretty much everybody thinks they're in it and that means there are few sellers. That three game series against Cincinnati is looming larger for the Brewers and may determine if the Crew have any chance to salvage the season. As it stands now Chicago and San Diego are out of it with Houston and Colorado not far behind. That doesn't bode well for teams looking to add that final piece to the puzzle.
What better day to start the U.S. Open than Flag Day? Once again all eyes are on Tiger Woods and he delivered with a one under par 69. So is he back? Stay tuned. I'm still not convinced, especially since everyone thought he back in April but that led to a 40th place finish at The Masters. One thing for sure, this promises to be a wide open tournament. Golf's majors have become as unpredictable as ever with 14 different players winning the last 14 major tournaments. As a bonus, with the U.S. Open in San Francisco we'll be treated to prime time golf and the terrific threesome of Woods, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson will be clearing the course just as Friday night gets underway. Now that's a nice start to the weekend.
