    NFL Star Drives a ‘92 Mazda
Thinking about buying a Mazda? Let Washington Redskins’ star running back Alfred Morris sell you on the idea. Despite achieving fame and fortune as a NFL star Morris eschews high-dollar luxury vehicles for his trusty 1992 Mazda 626. Morris recently noted in a radio interview that he took the car he lovingly calls “the Bentley” on a 34-hour round-trip excursion from Washington, D.C. to Boca Raton, FL.

    Finding Bright Spots Amid Cubs’ Mess
The Chicago Cubs are predictably, and by design, the worst team in the National League. The Cubs are 15-27 on the season, although their -3 run differential suggests that the team is a better than their record indicates. Of course, records don’t matter much on the Northside of Chicago these days unless you’re speaking of draft position.
The Cubs are bad. The front office pretty much told us they’d be bad, and the same is expected in 2015. And just imagine how bad they’ll be when they finally deal Jeff Samardzija to a contender for a truckload of prospects. It’s easy to dwell on the team’s dismal record and ever-shrinking payroll but it’s not all bad news in Wrigleyville.

    Orioles Need Chris Tillman to Step Up
The Orioles have remained at or near the top of the surprisingly underwhelming American League East through the first six weeks of the 2014 season. The O’s have battled injuries to Chris Davis and Manny Machado, and some maddening performances by closer Tommy Hunter. As Baltimore fans wait for the ballclub’s offense to take flight the biggest head-scratcher may be the performance of putative ace Chris Tillman.
The 26-year-old righty started the season with three excellent starts, allowing just two earned runs in 21 1/3 innings of work. After walking just three batters in those first three starts the normally consistent Tillman has had trouble finding the plate. In his last five starts Tillman has walked 16 batters in just 26 1/3 innings. Tillman’s lack of command has sent his pitch counts soaring. The problem culminated in a 49-pitch first inning two weeks ago against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Tillman hasn’t pitched more than six innings in a start since mid-April.

    NFL Draft Leaves Fantasy Owners Wanting
There was a time when the NFL Draft was one of my favorite sporting events. A friend and I would clear an entire April Saturday to consume the draft, along with vast amounts of salty snacks and pit beef. Those days are gone as Roger Goodell and company have made the draft a primetime television spectacular and spread the process out to an agonizing three days.
The NFL conducted the 2014 draft last week and I didn’t watch more than five minutes of it. I did check out the round results to see which, if any, offensive prospects would have the opportunity to make an impact next season. Round after round I came away wholly unimpressed.
The Jaguars wasted the third overall pick on another quarterback in Blake Bortles, just a few months after mercilessly pulling the plug on the Blaine Gabbert experience. Bortles will likely sit for a season but, given the Jags’ history and roster, the youngster has little chance to succeed in the near future.
