Early Sunday evening, I was attending to my long-honored tradition of the “naptastrophe.” My Sunday morning FOX Sports Radio show necessitates the early alarm, thereby putting me into a late-afternoon stupor that requires what some would consider a “long nap” and others would consider a “catastrophic” system failure. Thus, the “naptastrophy” was born. I digress. […]

Harmon returns to the microphone with a bevy of quick-hits across the sporting and entertainment worlds. There were three big injuries in the NFL out of the gate, with Jeremy Maclin, Dennis Pitta and Dan Koppen being lost for the season. The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown celebrated this year’s induction ceremony, but crowds […]

Harmon returns to the microphone to chat up a big day in the legal world … at least there seem to be a lot of sports stories working through courts. — Bill Belichick took to the microphone to address the Aaron Hernandez situation while Hernandez appeared in court. — A doctor who examined Alex Rodriguez […]

I asked a friend of mine in Baltimore media when the Orioles were going to dive into the trading pool early on Tuesday. He responded by predicting the acquisition of a relief pitcher. The Orioles acquired Francisco Rodriguez from the Brewers on Tuesday in exchange for infielder Nick Delmonico. Rodriguez successfully closed out all 10 […]

Harmon’s Podcast 7.23 puts him back behind the microphone to discuss the Ryan Braun suspension and the state of Major League Baseball. Results can be achieved through better chemistry and, let’s face it, there’s a ridiculous financial incentive to discover the next great thing. But, Major League Baseball will not be deterred. The question of […]

Congratulations to Felix Hernandez, who earned the 100th win of his career against the Astros on Monday night. Hernandez pitched six shutout innings with nine strikeouts, allowing five hits and a walk. Despite velocity concerns (see below), Hernandez has recorded 37 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings pitched this season. Many sniping 140-character comments have been […]

Bill Shaikin of The Los Angeles Times reports that Hanley Ramirez expects to rejoin the team earlier than the proposed mid-May timetable. The struggling Dodgers lineup could use Ramirez right now. Only the Marlins have scored fewer runs this season. Miami batters have combined to hit three home runs this season. Perhaps that will change […]

Prior to Sunday’s opener, I posted updated positional rankings on the FantasyPros.com website. We had great success in the 2012 season on the Dome, producing a top-10 finish (seventh) in the draft cheatsheet competition on the FantasyPros.com site. Injuries dominate the early-2013 landscape, as owners try to ascertain how much to discount injured stars such […]

“Embrace debate.” That’s the unofficial slogan in sports media for 2013. That’s been the theme of fantasyland for a long, long time. For 2013, fantasy owners are debating whether Mike Trout can repeat his historic 2012 campaign, whether Josh Hamilton will stay healthy and which media members gets the first “clown” reference from Bryce Harper. […]
