Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky, I mean the Phoenix Suns summer league team advanced to the tournament finals behind a trio of Wildcats in Devin Booker, Archie Goodwin, and Josh Harrelson.  Booker scored 31 to go with 9 rebounds, Harrelson added 19 points and 9 rebounds, and Goodwin contributed another 12 points and 6 rebounds of his own to lead the way.

We are to a point where you will not be able to go a single night this season without a former Calipari Cat blowing up or making a Sportscenter top 10.

The 'Cats also good part one of what is hopefully a two-part piece of good news.  Defensive Tackle Kobe Smith decommitted from N.C. State during his visit to UK this weekend.  Kentucky is presumed to be the favorite for Smith.

Cincinnati Reds Fire-sale has the green light.

The Reds are a dumpster fire and missed their window a few years back.  Now they have bloated, ridiculous contracts and it has come home to roost.  They lost to the Cleveland Indians today, the Indians scored all four of their runs on bases loaded walks.  How does that happen, I have never even heard of such a thing

Owner Bob Castellini has given the go ahead on the fire sale, enjoy the likes of Aroldis Chapman, Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, and Jay Bruce while you can.
