Wednesday’s Mid-Day Update
Posted by Matt on July 11, 2007
– Cincinnati Bengals’ linebacker Odell Thurman has officially completed his one-year banishment from the NFL by former commissioner Paul Tagliabue for his multiple violations of the NFL’s Substance Abuse Policy. Thurman has also officially applied for reinstatement to resume play for the Bengals and I believe that if he really shows remorse and that he has learned his lesson, then new commissioner Roger Goodell will more than likely reinstate him.
– Rashard Lewis is now officially a member of the Orlando Magic as the Magic have sent the Seattle SuperSonics a second-round pick in part of the sign/trade package. The SuperSonics will also allegedly receive a $9-million dollar trade exemption as well.
– As you all know by now, the American League defeated the National League by a score of 5-4 in last night’s All-Star Game meaning that the American League representative in the World Series will, again, have home field advantage. That being said, the Cincinnati Reds resume play tomorrow night (Thursday) at 7:10PM EST against the solid New York Mets in New York City at Shea Stadium. Bronson Arroyo versus Orlando Hernandez is the slated pitching matchup.
– To keep rookie sensation Homer Bailey on his normal pitching schedule over the All-Star Break, the Cincinnati Reds sent the pitcher to Triple-A Louisville for 10-days and he should make an appearance there on the mound either Thursday night or Friday night. A recap of his performance and a timetable for his Major League return will be posted after Bailey takes the hill at the end of this week.
– Cincinnati Bengals’ Training Camp 2007 opens up in exactly 16-days and 1-hour from right now. I am looking to schedule visits Tuesday, August 7th and Tuesday, August 14th, weeks two and three, respectively, and hope to have a full report back as we get excited for the upcoming NFL season.
As Major League Baseball play resumes on Thursday we will be busy with content all week long as things continue to roll on here at “The Nasty Boys.” College football coverage will begin August 1st along with continuing coverage of the recruiting front, by me, for both Kentucky basketball and football. Lots more to come, so stay tuned…
