SORT BY Relevancy
In the "Will the Mets bench Dave Magadan when Keith Hernandez returns" edition, Jeffrey and Greg have a lot of your e-mails to answer. But first we kick things off by not talking about Matt Harvey's concert-going habits, or the Mets moving the fences in again. We do have a discussion of Mets pitching prospect Marcos Molina for you though. Then, we answer your e-mails. For an hour. There is a lengthy discussion of the strengths and weakenesses of various WARs, a (hopefully final) response to the Wilmer Flores fan club, and a fairly lengthy digression about early 2000s northeast indy wrestling. How long is it until pitchers and catchers report again?
On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles, we discuss Brad Keselowski's win at Chicagoland Speedway. Brad's 15th win of his career, and 5th of the season. Back-to-back wins for the 2012 series champion, he led 62 of 267 laps. This win propels Brad Keselowski into the Contender Round of the chase. Some strong runs by most of his competitors in the chase. We'll break down the race, and the Chase scenario after race one.
Also, it was announced today that Marcos Ambrose will move back to Australia and compete in Super-V8 cars driving for Team Penske. This leaves the number 9 seat open at Richard Petty Motorsports for 2015. Who will replace Ambrose is still yet to be determined, and being the fact that sponsor, Stanley/DeWalt is moving to JGR in 2015, it's likely that these candidates will have to bring funding. The guys will break down the top candidates for that ride as well.
Have you showered yet? There's a good chance that, following that Pay-Per-View card last weekend, you might have a thin film of filth all over you. Floyd Mayweather is probably still the best fighter on the planet, but his ego was deflated some after a prolonged tussle with Marcos Maidana in their rematch. That was interesting to some, but not much more on the paid card was, unfortunately. This week on TQBR Radio, Patrick Connor of Queensberry Rules welcomes Alex McClintock, deputy editor for ABC Radio National and Queensberry Rules. Not much is on tap for the next week or so, but Orlando Salido, George Groves and a few others may pop up in conversation. Thanks for tuning in!
We're boxing fans, which means we're more or less combat-ready, prepared for some really funky stuff. If nothing else, this rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana has a much, much better tagline than their first bout, which was called "The Moment." This one is "Mayhem." They stuck with the M theme, presumably because you have, "Mayweather," "Marcos" and "Maidana," and someone just got that ear worm. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor preview Mayweather-Maidana II and its undercard, but also last weekend's nice flyweight action, Carl Frampton vs Kiko Martinez II, and the Showtime card featuring Adrien Broner, Lucas Matthysse and Andre Berto. Thanks for tuning in!

Around the world, at least one in every three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused during her lifetime. Most often, the abuser is a member of her own family.
Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women—more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined.
Studies suggest that up to 10 million children witness some form of domestic violence annually.
Nearly 1 in 5 teenage girls who have been in a relationship said a boyfriend threatened violence or self-harm if presented with a breakup.
Everyday in the US, more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends.
Ninety-two percent of women surveyed listed reducing domestic violence and sexual assault as their top concern.
