It seems weird that Major League Baseball may be about to levy widespread suspensions to star players suspected of using performing enhancing drugs (PEDs). The problem is that in the eyes of many fans such action is way too late.

The Yankees are in sufficiently bad shape that even a great year by Rivera will not bring them back to the World Series. Moreover, Rivera is not the only aging Yankee seeking to recover from an injury.
Performance of the night, Joakim Noah in the Chicago Bulls win over Philadelphia. He's the first player in NBA history to have at least 20 points, 20 rebounds, 10 blocks and shoot 65 percent in the same game.
