-- Don't look now, but the Mets lead the NL East after 9-1 homestand; their series in Philly this weekend should be very interesting.
-- Orioles may suck, but one of their big pitching prospects pitched a no-hitter for AAA Norfolk Wednesday. Chris Tillman is going to be in Baltimore fairly soon; he and Jake Arietta give Oriole fans hope.
-- All of Wednesday's baseball games were over before 11pm; not the ideal situation-- Utah-Denver on TNT saved the last part of the night.
-- Pat yourself on the back if you knew that Washington closer Matt Capps is the first closer to get to ten saves this season.
-- Bruins-Flyers are meeting in playoffs for the first time since 1978.
-- NHL takes a hit with Washington/Ovechkin blowing 3-1 series lead and losing first round series to 8th-seeded Montreal. NHL playoffs are just more competitive than the NBA's version, and thats good, but not to have Ovechkin on TV anymore will hurt the network ratings.
