PADRES…If the Friars don’t make the playoffs, because of injuries or continued erratic play, does GM-AJ Preller keep his job?  If ownership is shutting down trade talks-barring Preller from dealing more prospects or taking on more contracts, what is the future of this team, locked in by so many big-long term contracts to aging players?

DODGERS..This is messy right now, all the injuries, the injured pitching staff, and the substandard play of the final 4-games in the batting order.  Do the Dodgers really look like the elite Phillies or Yankees?  Is Dave Roberts in trouble as manager if this is not a deep playoff run this year after so many other disappointing post season failures?

ANGELS..Not sure I take much from the Halos sweep of the Padres, whether that was Halos coming together or Padres underachierving?  Just asking is there anyone in the Halos batting order that scares you?

CELTICS-DALLAS..Now that is some finale of fine shooters, but how does Dallas hold up since they are really a two man team (Luca-Kyrie) while Boston comes at you wave after wave?

OILERS-FLORIDA..This will be an interesting NHL-Stanley Cup final, a deep-very physical Panthers team against the Edmonton frontline firepower, but this series swings on special teams, and if the Panthers take penalties, they let the Oilers (19PPG) in 19-games and 28-straight penalty kills, so asking will Florida change its style of play to stay out of the box?

BELMONT STAKES…Going to be a fun 10-horse field on Saturday, eventhough the top 3-year old, Muth, cannot run, but there is big time speed with Seize the Gray, Sierra Leone and Mystik Dan, and the knowledge it is a mile and quarter race at Saratoga not the mile and a half at Belmont Park.  Who wins?  The one who crosses the finish line first.
