A veritable garbage dump of links

Pretty interesting piece by ESPN's Len Pasquarelli on how the Patriots spread the field with four or more receivers on 75% of their offensive snaps. That's a heck of allot of offense.

Fox Sports Dayn Perry goes through an interesting list of the best clubs at each vital section of a major league club. He spells it out in black and white for every other AL team trying to make the World Series with his pick as 'best lineup', the Detroit Tigers.

''Put it all together, and you've got a lineup that's potentially above league average at every single spot. You've also got an offense capable of scoring 1,000 or more runs on the season.''

Think Dwayne Wade is enjoying life in Miami right now?

"Sometimes, it's like having a nightmare and never waking up from it,'' Wade told reporters the other day. "It's like game after game, day after day, you can't believe that it's happening to you, but it is.''

Not so much, eh?

Did you know Patriots wide out Donte Stallworth has an imaginary Martian friend?

''Stallworth said that was punishment from his alter ego, Nicco, whom Stallworth has described as an extra terrestrial being that resides on Mars when the receiver is off the field.''

well, he does, it's official.

Quick morality question. Imagine you were troubled and oft in-trouble Titans defender Pacman Jones. Would you be seen within fifty miles of a club called the 'Body Tap Strip Club'? I didn't think so. Whilst in same, would you punch one of the, eh, performers?! I didn't think so.

''Jones has been arrested six times since being drafted sixth overall in 2005, including two arrests in Georgia in 2006 that the Titans did not learn about until 2007. Jones was suspended for the 2007 season by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in April.''

What next for Pacman, random baby punching?

The inevitable Johan Santana update! Doesn't appear much is happening, but I like the patience the Red Sox front office is showing;

''The Red Sox have been very quiet as of late about their interest. A Jon Lester-Coco Crisp-Justin Masterson and possibly Jed Lowrie package could still be in play. But some Sox officials would prefer to keep their young players and not make the deal.''

Finally, a bunch of Texans have been reported as having seen a UFO. Seriously.

''Several dozen people -- including a pilot, county constable and business owners -- say they have seen a large silent object with bright lights flying low and fast. Some reported seeing fighter jets chasing it.''

It is not reported whether they were in the cinema or not at the time.
