Osama Bin Laden is dead

In a very rare late Sunday Night address Barack Obama is expected to announce that Osama Bin Laden is dead. It is kind of crazy that this happens on the 8th anniversary of Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” declaration in reference to the Iraq War which was so terribly linked to Bin Laden from the Bush administration.

Just a little while ago a CBS producer posted on Twitter that Bin Laden was dead and that the US had the body. New York Times, NBC News and CNN are all reporting this now.

BREAKING NEWS: Obama addressing the nation tonight at 10:30 PM

Apparently the White House Press Corps has been called back to work. Obama is addressing the nation at 10:30 PM Eastern (roughly half an hour from now). Very strange for it to happen this late on a Sunday night. They killed Qaddafi? Killed/Found Bin Laden? Found life on Mars? Speculate away.

BREAKING NEWS: MLB PED suspension imminent!

Looks like we’ll be talking about steroids for the next little while. During the World Series last year I wrote about there not being many names released from the “steroids list”. After the A-Rod story broke last year I figured we would have seen a couple of more names too. I am honestly shocked that we haven’t seen names get leaked one or two at a time every couple of months.

There does seem to be a Performance Enhancing Drugs related suspension coming very soon.  There is no word on who the player is but that didn’t stop some people from accusing players but the story was first reported by Will Carrol of Baseball Prospectus yesterday.

“PED suspension coming.” 

It was a simple tweet but it ofcourse has created a wide spread scramble as everyone tries to figure out who the player involved is. He posted some more details in his column yesterday adding that the player is reportedly a pitcher and the player began an appeals process about a month ago. Just moments ago Craig Calcaterra of NBC Sports reported that the player involved is a National League pitcher. This really does have me curious. Which pitcher could it be? Anyone have guesses?
