    But if you think you should heed, try taking a page from Shawn Estes. The reality is that baseball's famed "unwritten rule book" is archaic.

    The Patriots will now send a fifth round pick to the Bills, giving the team seven picks in this week's draft. Coming off a 18-touchdown season, the 30-year-old likely expected to get more offers and for more money, but it doesn't seem like that's happened.

    In his post-game press conference, Lackey said ( via the Chicago Tribune ) that Thames' home run was "kinda one of those things that makes you scratch your head". "It does seem complicated to where he doesn't seem like he's got that power that he normally has", Matheny said. Instead of happily taking two of the three games in the series and saying "Thames is off to a great start and hopefully we figure out how to get him out or hope his numbers even out", Lackey and Bosio made a trash excuse ...
