DISTRACTIONS IN THE REAR VIEW by ST
Another, let's call it intriguing, off season for the Oregon football season. A year ago it was Masoli and the criminal patrol. This year we learned what a recruiting service is and got a ballpark on cost. Now it's time to concern ourselves with critical items like depth charts, catchable balls, route running, make up speed and all those things that come out of spring practice. On today's show we'll go through each spot on the offense and see who departed, who returns and who might fill those big shoes. It's less than 48 hours until the start of baseball season. ESPN has a triple header. Looks like the the series champion Giants will begin without closer Brian Wilson. Pulled a muscle on his left side 12 days ago on top of some back issues that surfaced earlier in camp. The good news is if you picture the throwing motion of a righty not much pressure is placed on that left side so he should be able to heal up 100%. Look for Jeremy Affeldt or Javier Lopez to share the 9th inning duties until the Beach Boy is ready. They're both lefties so right hander Sergio Romo, perhaps the most unsung key setup guy in the bigs, might close some games. Odd night in the NBA with the 76ers taking out Boston and the Pacers snapping the Bulls 14 game home win streak. Keeps the Chicago edge for the top seed in the East playoffs at 2 games and pushed the Heat into a tie with the Celtics for 2nd in the race.
