The Roundup, by Casey Mitchell

With the NBA Draft tonight, a lot of speculation has been surrounding the Cav's first overall pick. Duke's Kyrie Irving is expected to be the pick Cleveland takes first. The Cavaliers also have the fourth pick in this years draft. To me it would make more sense for them to take Derrick Williams first, then get a point guard like Kemba Walker or Brandon Knight with that fourth pick. If Cleveland does take Iriving, he will be the third point guard taken first overall in four years, joining Derrick Rose in 2008 and John Wall in 2010.
Cav's Owner Dan Gilbert has stated that his son, Nick, is the teams good luck charm, and will be calling Cleveland's first 2 round selections. This could be the first step to a fulfilled promise made to Cav's fans by Owner Dan Gilbert, that they will win a championship before LeBron James wins one.

Even though the Minnesota Twins are 32-40 and 7.5 games back, they are 8-1 in their last nine games.With the return of Mauer, and the offense heating up, don't count out the Twins just yet.
The Florida Marlins snapped their 11-game losing streak, and a 1-19 record in the month of June, with a win over the Angels on Tuesday. Before June started Florida was 31-23 and in third place in the NL East. Now they are 14 games out of first place and in last place. I can tell you one thing... The Marlins are excited for July!
