350, D. Fisher, Free Agents, Serena

Yankees won and in the process Roger Clemens picked up his 350th career win. That's outstanding. We're still double digits in games behind Boston, but at least we've witnessed history. Oh and just for good measure, A-Rod had to leave the game with a hamstring injury. When it rains it pours. I heard Scott Proctor went onto the field the other day and set his equipment on fire. I totally think he should have done that sooner because he's been unbelievable horrible. I know it's probably due to being overused but still.....
I forgot to mention that Barry made the All-Star game as a starter. He made up a lot of ground in a week to pull off being a starter. There was no way in hell they were going to play a game in San Fran without him being there especially with him on the brink of breaking the home run record.
The Jazz released Derek Fisher from his contract so he can move to a city that offers better care for his infant daughter who has cancer in her eye. I'm glad the Jazz did this without a fight. Believe it or not some owners would have made a really big deal about this. They probably would have just tried to trade him to one of those preferred cities. You couldn't blame them if they went the trade route, but this is much better. Retirement is an option, but hopefully it won't come to that.
Vince Carter resigned with the Nets for 60 million. Um, they weren't bidding against anyone so I don't know why in the hell they would give a 30+ year old who's injury prone and who played damn near horribly in the playoffs that kind of money. They should have let him test the waters. I can assure you there is no other team that was going to give him 60 million. 50 maybe, but 60 wasn't happening.
Jason Kappono signed with the Raptors. Let's see if he can shoot damn near 50% from three with a hand in his face. Make no mistake about it, there is no Shaq or D-Wade on Toronto so those wide open threes will be few and far between.
Serena went down with a sprain today at Wimbledon and she looked like she was going to have to retire, but luckily for her it started raining so they had time to rub her down in the back. She came back out as a statue and basically beat the hell out of her opponent.
Tank Johnson was not charged with a DUI after they pulled him over for being slightly impaired. Unfortunately for him, he's already been cut by the Bears. They had plenty of reason to cut him before so in the grand scheme of things it doesn't matter.
