Congratulations to Joe on the Patriots making the Super Bowl (02:35 - 08:05). Peter Gammons and Donald Trump love Curt Schilling (08:08 - 10:08).

The Nationals hope that Brian Dozier provides pop and a stable presence from second base.
There was nobody on a pitching mound in 1965 that could deny Mel Stottlemyre was not the ace of the New York Yankees. With Whitey Ford a year from retiring, Stottlemyre was the hot pitcher that would front the rotation for 11 years.
