These soccer womenz don't got no scoring touch...
How is that any different from watching Spain's national men's soccer team?

You must've missed their 3-0 win over Venezuela. lol.

But in reality the national teams normally bore me, I prefer just watching the Club teams. I dont appreciate the National Teams either, because time and time again an important player for a Club Team (The Team that pays his bloody Salary!) will be injured in an international friendly. If I were a manager of a professional club, I would only allow my players to play for their national team on IMPORTANT matches (i.e. World Cup or the continental cup), NOT FOR FRIENDLIES.

Which is why, if my soccer dreams become reality and I ever get called up for the US National Team, I would only play for them in either A )  The off-season for the league of which my club team plays, or B )  Important, non-friendly, matches

That's not how the system works, thankfully. Besides, the whole point of friendlies is to assist in team-gelling and to blood new youngsters in the team.

Buddy, you must be watching a different sport. I cant tell you how many times a Sydney FC or Man United player has been injured in a mid-season international friendly, it's ridiculous!

I'm not against friendlies, I just think a player shouldnt be allowed to play in a friendly that is in the middle of their domestic club season. I'm sorry the player should take the club as a priority over the national team. PERIOD.

AMEN!

As a near fanatical Manchester United man, I get scared every time they come over here to the States because of possible injuries. Even more so more for the national team matches.

Last year I kept on hearing about Rio trying to train for the international matches (as did Wayne Rooney) and they did nothing more than make it harder for them to heal....luckily we won the league but still.....:)

I'm well aware of the potential for injuries. I'm well aware of the club vs country debate. If I were an international manager, I would simply refuse to select anyone who chose not to come out for an international friendly. That's how young players get introduced to full international squads, how managers try out new systems etc.

You say that your issue is with international friendlies during the domestic season. But the potential is also there for a player to get injured in the off-season friendlies--a time when they should be resting after playing 40+ games during the season. The fact is that player injuries happen. The fact is that international friendlies have to happen during the season, because otherwise international squads will go months without playing together.

Maybe they just need to reduce the number of international matches, either way somethings going to give within the next 10 years.

Pirates have good pitching and crappy bats... I'm not sure what the story is with the Braves, if this is normal for them, etc... the Braves have had runners in scoring position with less than 2 outs several times since the 9th, but haven't been able to get them home

Game is over in the 19th inning... there were Braves on 2nd and 3rd... then a hit to the Pirates 3rd basemen, who throws it home... the Pirates catcher tags the Atlanta guy...  oh wait, the umpire says he DIDN'T tag him, so he's safe and the Braves win... that was a crazy ending... while the throw home beat the runner by a mile, it was hard to tell definitively live or from replay whether he tagged the runner or not, it was sort of a swiping motion towards the guys leg... ugh

Today, Ervin Santana completed a rare feat: a complete game no-hit non-shutout vs. my Indians, winning 3-1.  The first batter of the game reached on an error, stole 2nd, went to 3rd on a fielder's choice, and scored on a sacrifice fly.  The next (and last) Indian to reach base was on a walk in the 8th.

The Tribe's slide out of the top of the Division continues.

WAIT! The Steelers are interested in Burress? WHY?

1) We don't have the money for him. At all. We're more than 10 million over the cap as it is.
2) We have a group of good young receivers who need to develop, not sit on the sidelines. One of those receivers is poised to become a pro-bowl caliber player this year.
3) We already have all the veteran receivers we need: and their names are Ward, ward, and ward,
4) Did I mention that we are 10 million over the cap, more than any other team in the league, and that we need to make some difficult CUTS, not gamble on an unneeded receiver?
5) I didn't like Burress when he was here. Now, I'm not like your typical yinzer, who mindlessly boos anyone who leaves, but in this case I really don't want him back. See points 1-4 above.

Ok, I feel better now!

Poorly scored error. Shoulda been a hit.

I remember something similar with William "The Refrigerator" Perry back in the 80's. I don't think the Bears ever cut him, but Coach Ditka had some not-so-good things to say at times about the Fridge's girth (6'2", 382 lbs at his peak NFL size).
