6) Chase Utley. David Price. Andrew Wiggins. Kevin Love. If one or more of these players has been traded as you are reading this, never mind the following question. But if not, "When will one or more of these players be traded so we can stop asking if they will or should be traded"? 7) What is St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny thinking when he uses closer Trevor Rosenthal three games in a row, as he often does? Rosenthal is tied for the MLB lead with 30 saves, but his four blown saves and his five losses are often the result of a questionable workload. 8) When the Indy racers decided it would be unwise to drive in Toronto last Saturday, did you chuckle and exclaim "That goes for the rest of us every other day"? 9) If the Expos returned to Montreal and Toronto landed an NFL team, which city would be happiest to be known for something other than its mayor? 10) Do the rest of the claret jugs in this world get jealous when the only one ever mentioned is the one held by Rory McIlroy on Sunday? 11) How many broadcasters fear the day when Odrisamer Despaigne becomes the first San Diego Padres pitcher to throw a no-hitter and they have to try to pronounce his name? 12) When Adam Wainwright retires, will he be known for all his victories and all his strikeouts, or will he be known for the pitch that Derek Jeter hit for a double? If the answer is the latter, the blame lies with Adam Wainwright. 13) If Katy Perry plays any more sold-out shows at Air Canada Centre, shes liable be up in the rafters with Jon Bon Jovi, so to speak. Has anyone checked to see if theyre saving room for another Stanley Cup banner? 14) Wheres the good news for the Buffalo Bills when defensive tackle Marcell Dareus is arrested for synthetic marijuana possession and drag racing and fails his training-camp conditioning test? According to Bills coach Doug Marrone, "Marcell has a good heart". Okay, then. 15) Washingtons NFL team will have a new name by 2016, according to Sports Illustrated"s Peter King. Whos for calling it "Washingtons NFL team" until then? 16) Theres nothing wrong with colourful athletes, and Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney is one, with his "bow and arrow" celebration pose. But is there anything dumber than displaying it to end the 8th inning only to blow a save in the 9th inning, thus allowing the opposing LA Angels to mock him by shooting arrows themselves? 17) Dont you find it interesting that the NFL has apparently gone from not caring about the lack of a team in Los Angeles to thinking about building its own stadium there? 18) Do we need to know the salary figure for each and every player in the NHL? No, which means we dont need to know salary information for someone who might play in the NHL. But we do. Vladimir Sobotka, who left the St. Louis Blues for the Kontinental Hockey League, was awarded, via arbitration, a one-year, $2.725 million contract which will take effect should he return to the NHL. 19) The last name of the lawyer representing would-be LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer is "Streisand". Do you think he sings to himself "People……. people with two billion dollars to spend on a basketball team, and their lawyers, are the luckiest people in the world"? 20) Finally, am I allowed a personal note? Thanks. Congratulations to kindred spirit Matt Bonner on a new contract that will make him a San Antonio Spur for a ninth season. “The Red Rocket” is just as popular a Spur as he was a Raptor, and he helps me select this weeks musical tidbit. Enjoy Matts favourite band and one of mine, Okkervil River. Greg Lloyd Jersey . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. "The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals," Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest.

Simon Pagenaud refused to accept a post-race apology from Will Power, and Justin Wilson was furious with Scott Dixon. James Hinchcliffe tried to be diplomatic but failed to hide his displeasure with teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay. The one team smiling at the end of Sundays race? Ed Carpenter Racing, which got an unexpected victory from Mike Conway. Conway, hired this year when team owner and oval specialist Carpenter decided to get out of the car on road and street courses, started 17th and overcame an early broken wing to win the Toyota Grand Prix for the second time in his career. The British driver was chasing Dixon over the final few laps, then got the lead when Dixon stopped for fuel two laps from the finish. "I didnt know whether he had the fuel to finish or not," Conway said. "The guys were telling me he was saving fuel and they werent sure that he could make it, but at the same time, you dont want to rely on that. I was kind of trying to make things happen and maybe get by him. But when I saw him pull in I was like, OK, the guys are right and just have to bring it home. "Second would have been good, but this is awesome." The race was shaping up to be a Hunter-Reay rout until he triggered a seven-car accident 24 laps from the finish. Hunter-Reay started from the pole and led 51 laps, and had Andretti Autosport teammate Hinchcliffe right behind him when the race took a bizarre turn. Josef Newgarden had raced off pit road in a successful bid to get back on the track in front of Hunter-Reay and Hinchcliffe, who had swept the front row in qualifying for Andretti. But on cold tires, Newgarden wasnt going to be able to hold off Hunter-Reay for long. Only Hunter-Reay decided not to wait and tried to pass Newgarden as they entered a tight Turn 4. The two cars collided, Newgarden was sent into the wall and Hunter-Reay bounced into Castroneves path. Hinchcliffe ran into the back of Newgarden — Will Power and Conway successfully squeezed through the wreckage — but three more cars were collected as they all ran into the crashed cars long after the accident began. Newgarden was polite when he returned to his pit stand. "I was on cold tires, its very hard to control the car, I knew Hunter-Reay was on hot, and at some point he was probably going to get me," Newgarden said. "But I didnt expect anyone to come up on the inside of four. Theres so little room there, you normally cant make a pass, even if something like that is going on ... the next thing I knew I was in the wall and I was just getting plowed into by everyone. "That shouldnt happen up front. It really shouldnt. You shouldnt have incidents like that when you are running up front." Team owner Sarah Fisher was composed when asked about the incident on television, but let her true feelings be known on Twitter shortly after: "It was our race to win and we got robbed by immaturity. Period,&qquot; she posted.dddddddddddd Michael Andretti seemed shell-shocked at two of his cars being wrecked, "you need to be a little more patient," he said, and Hinchcliffe didnt mince words for his teammate. "At the end of the day, patience is a virtue and someone wasnt very virtuous today. It was a rookie move," said Hinchcliffe, who suffered a sprained left thumb and will need to be re-examined before hes cleared to drive again. Hunter-Reay didnt exactly accept responsibility. "I went for it. I could have waited a little bit later, maybe thats my fault," he said. "Its down to me to make the pass, I guess, Im not sure. A lot of people say its my fault. I made the decision at that split second when he had some wheel spin to go for it, thats the type of driver I am. I go for it. "You dont know how down I am. Just very, very disappointed. Ill look at it again, but a racing driver, when hes in the moment and he sees a chance to go for it, I went for it because I want to win the race." The accident opened the door for Dixon to score his first career win at Long Beach, until he stopped for fuel as a precaution. "The last thing I wanted to do was run out of gas in front of the whole field and cause a big accident," Dixon said. He had to mend fences with Wilson, who was enraged over contact with Dixon "that is so deliberate and blatant," and angry IndyCar did not penalize Dixon. Pagenaud also was furious with Power, refusing to accept his apology, and angry that IndyCar did not penalize Power for contact between the two. "I think we had a car to win and he pretty much ruined our race, our chance," said Pagenaud, who did not accept an apology from Power. "We were friends until now. We wont be going on vacation together, I guess." Power insisted he thought Pagenaud had an issue with his car. "I honestly thought he had a problem because he went back really slowly and so I went up his inside and then realized he was just going to turn and try to back out. I got him. My bad," Power said. "I feel bad. I dont like to be raced like that and Im surprised I didnt get a penalty. But I honestly thought he had a flat tire or something because he was really slow and I didnt understand why." Pagenaud, who rallied to finish fifth, dismissed Powers claim. "Racing, green flag, and I slowed down? Good for him," Pagenaud said. Power finished second — his fourth consecutive race dating to last season that hes finished either first or second. Rookie Carlos Munoz finished third and Juan Pablo Montoya was fourth for his best showing — in a test, practice or qualifying session — in his return after seven seasons in NASCAR. Montoya climbed to fourth early in the race, but a penalty for pitting when pit lane was closed dropped him to 20th and he had to drive his way back. "I could have been a little more aggressive at the end, but I really wanted to make sure we didnt get in any trouble and got a decent finish," Montoya said.
