The Starting Rotation – 7/1/11

Yesterday’s Big Story – Like the NFL before it, the National Basketball Association announced yesterday that a new collective bargaining agreement could not be agreed upon before the current CBA expired, leading to a lockout.  While this lockout seems to have understandably gotten less publicity than the NFL’s version, the general consensus among basketball experts is that the NBA lockout is much worse.

Yesterday’s Star – Geovany Soto, Catcher, Chicago Cubs: Soto delivered a pinch hit, three-run walk-off homerun to cap a four-run rally and send the Cubs to a stunning 5-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants.  It was Soto’s first career walk-off hit.

Yesterday’s Fail – The Texas Rangers: Got shut out 7-0 by the 29-53 Houston Astros.  ‘Nuff said.

Yesterday in Washington – Happy Birthday LaVar Arrington!  And that was about it for yesterday.

Today in Washington – The Nats are back in town against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Fresh off a three game sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Washington turns to Tom Gorzelanny (2-6, 4,18 ERA) to stop the bleeding.
