Prior out for season, and that's a good thing

Mark Prior has been put on the DL for the rest of the year, and that's a good thing. It means his arm can get a rest early in his career, and Bruce Kimm won't do any more damage by leaving Prior out there for 120+ pitch outings.

French concede: Lance is the man

The French finally ended their nearly two year long investigation of Lance Armstrong and the USPS cycling team. Early tests indicated Armstrong and his teammates were clean, but the investigation was kept open because, well, the French are jealous of the American champ. Some fans shouted Do-pay at Armstrong this year, though I didn't hear any of this while I was there. They should be shouting at Richard Virenque, one of their hometown heroes, who actually was convicted of using banned substances a few years back. Sheesh.
