McClure: Falcons OK without Shembo

It wasn't a given that Prince Shembo would have been impactful this season. Let's not forget that despite showing potential last season, Shembo struggled due to injuries and learning a new position. So even with a lack of depth at LB, Brooks Reed and O'Brien Schofield will help fill the gap. Next-man-up scenario

Olney: Angels could sure use Hamilton

"Josh Hamilton clubbed two homers for the Rangers in his fifth game back in the big leagues, mostly on the Angels' dime, and what must really gnaw on his old team -- his old team in Anaheim, that is -- is that they could really use a hitter like him right now, for the middle of their lineup."

From strikeouts to grand slams

Derek Norris struck out 4 times in the first 8 innings Friday vs. the Pirates. But his at-bat with two out in the 9th and the bases loaded in a tie game went differently: He hit a walk-off grand slam, the first in MLB this season. Norris is only the 8th player in the live-ball era to have 4 K's and a grand slam in the same game, but the first to have the slam be a walk-off.
