Bill Plaschke: Brady can’t destroy the reality that he’s a cheat

bostonherald.com — LOS ANGELES-It turns out, Tom Brady’s cellphone wasn’t the only thing that was destroyed.So, too, was any remaining shard of belief in his competitive integrity, every last piece blown to smithereens with 10,000 text messages and one giant lie.Does anybody still believe the NFL’s most celebrated player didn’t purposely deflate footballs in an attempt to gain an advantage during last season’s NFL playoffs?Does anybody still think his legacy should not include the word “cheater?”

latimes.com — When Zack Greinke left the Dodgers on Thursday in the middle of his potentially historic scoreless-inning streak to be with wife Emily for the birth of their first child, you'll never guess who smiled at the memories. Orel Hershiser, whose record 59-inning scoreless streak is being threatened by Greinke's 43 2/3-inning streak, also witnessed a birth during his legendary run in 1988.
