I love these first few weekends in September - sports everywhere.

After winning 9 out of 11, they've lost 5 of their 6. You guys are right on Javy and AJ. I like our chances better when Nova or Mosely is on the mound than those two. Still, despite the recent slide they do have the best record in baseball and holding onto a lead in the division. Further, the Yanks have 7 games with the The Rays over the next week and half, which should pretty much settle the division and the debate on their season.
On other teams - Looking at the three headed monster that the Phils have in their starting rotation, they could be the team that is best set for a playoff run.
It is the 2nd week of college football, so it must mean it is time to say that Notre Dame should join a conference. The game with Michigan was exciting, but no college team should be expected to run the tables with the annual schedule the Irish have - Join the Big East, win a conference, go to the BCS title game - it's that simple.
The QB from Michigan is the real deal. He runs like Mike Vick with Donovan McNabb's passing accuracy.
NFL - When do the Cowboys start their new head coaching search? I like Wade Philips, but he's not a Super Bowl level coach - lacks attention to details.

The Detroit Lions were robbed of a victory.
Could this be the year that Houston pops through to the playoffs?
