The Daily Drive will be a daily (duh) post of all the prominent things going on in the sports world we didn’t cover, and anything else we might want to share with you. Like family secrets. I’ll go first: My great-aunt Lily, not really all that great.
-Starting things off on a bit of a sour note, a San Francisco Giants fan was beat into critical condition Thursday night by fans wearing LA Dodgers gear. We hope for the best.
-Opening Day Part Deux is underway, with your Philadelphia Phillies pulling a stunning come back against the Astros, down 2 in the 9th. Always nice to see a franchise catch a break like that.
-Last night the New York Rangers got roasted by the Islanders, creating the potential for a slide down to 8th spot in the East. Who they play is still up in the air, because the Flyers got shutout by a feisty Atlanta squad while Washington picked up 2 points to pace 1 behind the Fly Guys for the the Eastern lead. The Flyers look to gain back ground when they play the New Jersey Devils tonight at 7.
-Some dumb-ass high school kids sacrificed a couple of chickens last week, and subsequently have been kicked off their baseball team. No word yet on whether Dennis Haysbert was involved.
I'm going to guess yes. (via)
-The 32 best players in baseball, right now. Spoiler Alert: Robinson Cano is 9th.
