Today's games

O'Donoghue's time finally comes
TAMPA -- It was just the way James O'Donoghue remembered the feeling: that sweet slash through the baseball, the ping of aluminum, that quick sprint down to first base, the sound of cheers and of his hands slapping together in celebration, the grass beneath his feet as he trotted out to rightfield, the feeling of the ball as he closed his glove around it.

Godby turns up the pressure for 1st state title
TAMPA -- The greatest thing about baseball is the complexity of the game. There are so many situations that arise during the course of a game, so many nuances, the possibilities seem endless.

Tournament sidelines

Fifteen years later, the offensive innovator is a first-time Arena coach responsible for living up to his example.

A lack of temper control is not new to Mutiny's Diallo
Mamadou Diallo has helped the Mutiny win plenty of games since joining the team last season. But after his latest fine and suspension, it can be argued Diallo also is hurting the team.

Defensive problems plaguing Martinez
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Felix Martinez fell into his job with the Rays this time last year because shortstop Kevin Stocker had become a defensive liability. Martinez may have lost his job this week for the same reason.

Et cetera
Olbermann still looking for niche
For the third time in four years, anchor Keith Olbermann has departed a high-profile network job -- and it's unclear when he'll be on television again.
