Albert Pujols talked to me about joining Adrián Beltré as the only two players born in the Dominican Republic with 3,000 hits: "It's very special, especially knowing all the Dominican players that come through the big leagues. To be able to accomplish that has been unbelievable. But I really don't think about it. When I hit it, when that moment comes, I'll probably be more focused on it. But right now, my job is to try and win every game and to try to help this ball club win. That's my goal. I don't play for records, I play to win a championship. And there would be nothing better than to bring a championship this year to the city of Anaheim. That's my main focus. So I'm aware, because I mean, I'm human. I'm aware of where I'm at. We have big numbers in our stadium that show you every day! It's going to be a very special moment whenever it happens. But I really don't look for it, I really just let it happen. Just like I have with the 500 and 600, and ignore the distractions."

I spoke with Espn 100 PG Courtney Ramey. Today he is taking his official Louisville. He has already made official visits to Texas and Oklahoma State. At Webster Groves HS, Ramey has won back to back state championships and Mr. Basketball under Jay Blossom. He greatest strengths are his leadership, scoring ability, passing vision and positional length.

NBA draft departures shake up Way-Too-Early Top 25

The deadline for early entrants to declare for the NBA draft has passed, so it's time to re-evaluate the early top 25 for 2018-19. With so many players testing the waters yet not signing with an agent, it's more art than science.

The Cowboys have picked up the fifth-year option on defensive back Byron Jones. The move was actually made last Friday. Jones is moving to cornerback in 2018 after spending the last two seasons at safety. The option is worth $6.2 million and is guaranteed only for injury. Since the new collective bargaining agreement, the only first-round pick to not have the option picked up was Morris Claiborne (2012).
