A lot of new weapons, a decent schedule and yet he's flying under the radar. Like Bradford, the offensive line is an issue (so far Jonathan Martin is scaring beat writers in camp), but Tannehill is doing really well. Again, a guy to pair off early but someone who could be huge this season.
Liam Carnahan, 27, was strolling on the newly rehabbed South Boston waterfront recently, not far from the courthouse where Bulger is being tried. Carnahan once had a goldfish named Whitey Bulger a joke, he said. The name doesn't strike fear in his heart, the way it might have for a young man walking down the streets of Southie 40 years ago.
On the other hand, none of that means that his deal with the Nets is cover for an under-the-table exchange. As noted by Bill Simmons in between Midnight Run quotes earlier this week, Kirilenko has made more than $110 million in professional basketball, which mitigates the differences in salary between the $3.18 million he'll get from the Nets and various offers from the Wolves and others. For a player of his age and experiences, those other factors really do matter, whether they involve playing in a cosmopolitan city, connecting with a powerful Russian leader, or chasing a title. The claims that something nefarious must have happened for Kirilenko to sign with the Nets suggest stereotype-influenced paranoia, the vain assumption that these teams were clearly more attractive destinations, or basic jealousy. Very few seem willing to consider that people define happiness in different ways.
Jesus Montero, designated hitter and catcher, Seattle Mariners, on option to Triple-A Tacoma, 50 games: The 23-year-old Montero was acquired by Seattle before the 2012 season in a trade that sent right-hander Michael Pineda to the Yankees. Montero was considered one of the top prospects in baseball after a brief stint with New York at the end of 2011. He got off to a solid start in Seattle last year, hitting .260 with 15 homers and 62 RBIs. The Mariners were hoping he could take over as the team's full-time catcher this season, but that never materialized. After he was linked to Biogenesis in the offseason, Montero was not in the shape the Mariners wanted when he arrived at spring training. He played in 29 games before being demoted to the minors in late May and had barely settled in at Tacoma when he sustained a left knee injury that required surgery. He recently rejoined Tacoma after a short stint in the Arizona Rookie League. Salary lost: $79,820.
At any rate: people love accusations that the press is biased against them; it s a proven fund raiser and morale booster. No wonder Republicans have been at it for over 40 years!
