Starting to get the feeling that many owners are having serious second thoughts. Even as overwhelming greedy as they are.

I don't know who is worse when in an unscripted setting Manfred or Goodell.When these seasons start (and they might not start) but if they do, it will take Armageddon to shut them down.Looking at players returning to work in masks is just strange.

Other than the DH, which was long overdue, the new in-game rule changes in baseball border on the ridiculous.When it all comes together for Dustin Johnson, nobody can stay with him. (Just doesn't happen enough).

My picks at the halfway point: Leishman -9, Ancer -8 and Bubba -3.Phil shoots a 63 to take the Travelers lead at -13 under. Amazing!

My picks for the Travelers: Bubba Watson(20-1), three-time winner. Ancer (25-1), nobody better tee to green, Leishman (45-1), just a hunch.

Mike Repole will be completely in charge or he won't be involved in any Mets deal.Odds are strong he plays for the Jets this year and continues to make himself and everybody else miserable.Jets should not touch Adams' contract. And if somebody knocks them over with a trade, then deal him away.

NY Bred bought for $110k by Tagg and connections. Great job. What the game is all about.As I told you, Tiz the Law is the real thing.

Tiger will not be playing in Travelers next week. Still have a very strong field."Great" players transform bad teams into winners. Jets are 16-32 with Adams. Enough said.Unbeaten on a fast track, Tiz the Law is ready to show his stuff in the Belmont tomorrow. Impressive horse.

The NFL, including Goodell, did a good job in presenting the league last night under difficult circumstances. America needed that!Dolphins got their QB and didn’t have to trade up to three to get him. Good job.You have to ask if Aaron Rodgers was happy.Jets needed an OT. This is a critical draft for Jets and must find a WR tomorrow.I think the Giants were in agreement on the need for an OT. But if pushed, I would say more Gettleman than Judge.I think both Giants and Jets needed to take OTs. All four top OTs had solid ability.I like Wirfs. Freakishly athletic, very strong. Played three sports.I think Goodell has a bigger basement. But I’m very comfortable with mine.Draft questions.NFL did a nice job of running the first round smoothly. No, I don’t know where Wingo got the suit.
