While there is unfortunately no baseball being played during the winter months, we normally have the Hot Stove to keep us warm with endless rumors and huge contracts being handed out by teams who will inevitably regret it. Until this past winter, that is. The free agent market just wasn’t any good , and Yoenis Cespedes was the only player on the open market to secure a guarantee above $100 million (four years, $110 million, to be exact )
Jerry and Stephen Jones are at the Spring League Meetings and he revealed a few thoughts on free agency and the Cowboys draft needs. On Free Agency, Stephen says: “Now let me be real clear, if a great offensive player shows up that’s of great value to us, that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to pick an offensive player. But our focus is on defense, and even though we lost some numbers on defense, some of them we were ready to move on from and then there are others – obviously, we replaced our corner (in free agency with Carroll)
The Dallas Cowboys made a move that on the surface looks like an insurance move for the offensive line when they signed free agent offensive lineman Bryon Bell .

Despite having two MMA legends at the top of the card, Vitor Belfort and Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua, last Saturday’s UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs Gastelum didn’t do so great with TV viewers. According to Sports TV Ratings , the event averaged 946,000 viewers on Fox Sports 1, 531,000 of them in the 18-49 demographic. This rating barely edged out the number of viewers for the Fight Night headlined by less-known fighters Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne earlier this year, and was topped by Yair Rodriguez vs B.J

“I had no idea it would have the impact that it did,” writer/director Ron Shelton said a couple of years ago when “Bull Durham” turned 25. The funny this is…Shelton didn’t have to think too hard to come up with the idea and characters for the 1988 movie. He lived it.
