Houston, T oughtful advice to one of her children. Lind complained not long ago that the foot he injured with a foul ball on June 14 didnt seem to be getting better. You can tell your mom that. You cant always tell your trainers or doctors. Lind had all the tests. Still, it didnt seem right. His mom, not a doctor, was clear: get an MRI. And so he asked for one. The imaging was done and it was determined he had a fracture in his foot. The Jays then sent him to North Carolina to see a foot specialist. The diagnosis now is that Lind will be out two weeks after this weeks All-Star GGame. Trey Burton Jersey. And there is no talk of adding Linds mom to the Jays medical or training staff. Maybe there should be. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated My thumb is down to coach Louis van Gaal and the Netherlands, whose color is orange but whose liver is lilly. van Gaal said he asked two players to take the first penalty kick in the shootout against Argentina and was rebuffed twice. If those unnamed players indeed did decline, it represents turtling of the first order. But van Gaal also deserves blame. He asked players to take the kick. He didnt tell them. Since when did sports - especially the World Cup - become a democracy? Penalty kicks in the semifinal shouldnt be a show-of-hands thing. Brazil was humiliated by Germany, but the Netherlands embarrassed itself without any help. Dave Hodge, TSN My thumb is down to a new idea that proves that all new ideas arent good ideas. At the MLB All-Star game in Minnesota, beer can be purchased at self-serve machines. I want you to imagine that youre thirsty and at the back of the line while the person at the front of the line is first undergoing, via the beer machine, an ID check for proof of age. Then the purchase of a money card that will allow access to the machine, so the brand of beer can be selected, and the quantity of beer, by the ounce, can be determined, followed of course by the pouring of the beer, spillage would seem unavoidable. Meanwhile at the back of the line, if a vendor walked by, with a can of beer in his hand, can you think of any reason to wait until you get to the front of the line, except to take a selfie...you and the beer machine?
