If Cleveland fans are worried about LeBron James leaving, Raptors fans should feel the same way about the possibility of Chris Bosh leaving. It is almost set in stone that Bosh will leave Toronto. With that being the case, it will leave the Raptors without a superstar. On top of that, due to signing Turkoglu last summer, Toronto will have minimal cap space. Raptors fans need to pray for a miracle, because it will take one for this franchise to not be down in the dumps.

This Saturday in Vancouver, British Columbia the Ultimate Fighting Championship will hold their next pay per view UFC 115. The main event includes Rich Franklin vs Chuck Liddell. Honestly right now this is probably one of the weakest pay per view card for the UFC. Now if this was a free television card on Spike television then the card would not be bad at all. The main event fighters are both coming off losses and it is hard to say what would happen for the winner. The light heavyweight division is so deep that the winner would have a couple more challenges to face before even being considered a contender for the title.
The rest of the UFC 115 card looks disappointing in my eyes. Pat Barry a developing fighter against a worn and beat down Mirko Cro Cop as a co-main event is “ugghhhh”. Then you have Paulo Thiago versus Martin Kampmann which is a good fight between two ranked welterweights. After that I can really care less about the fights. It just does not appeal to me.
Franklin vs Liddell – Franklin via Unanimous Desicion
Barry vs Cro Cop – Barry via TKO 2nd round
Thiago vs Kampmann – Thiago via Submission 2nd round

The Toronto Blue Jays optioned reliever Josh Roenicke to triple-A Las Vegas on Monday night and will activate lefty Brian Tallet to start Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Roenicke is 1-0 in nine games with 4.97 earned-run average, but his 11 walks in 12 2-3 innings were a concern.
“We want him to go back and work on his control a little bit,” manager Cito Gaston said after a 3-2 win over the Rays. “He’s probably the hardest throwing right-hander out of that bullpen right now, but he does have control problems at times.”
